Fried rice is versatile, weeknight dish that’s just as good using fresh ingredients or the week’s leftovers.

One-Pan Chicken Burrito Bowls

We’re always looking for quick and easy weeknight dinners that appeal to our preschooler as well as us. With this recipe, you cook the Spanish rice and chicken together, and then add black beans and corn to the same pan (though it’s easy to separate them out for picky eaters who like their food in separate piles). Add more piles of chopped avocado, shredded cheese, sour cream, and salsa, and you’ve got dinner.

Grammy’s Porcupine Balls

My grandmother had her hands full raising six kids in the 1950s and ’60s, so a lot of her cooking was very simple. (Though her spaghetti sauce recipe is a family favorite.) Dad also remembers her making these meatballs, studded with rice and served with a simple tomato sauce.

Guy’s Shrimp Risotto with Peas, Lemon, & Pecorino

Patience is one of Guy’s virtues, as is generosity. Throw in a sense of adventure in the kitchen, and you’ll find someone who makes great risotto. He made this risotto for Valentine’s Day and then again when we invited another couple over for dinner and ping pong. The combination of creamy rice, shrimp, peas, lemon zest, and pecorino cheese is hard to forget.
