With a handful of favorite recipes, any cook can keep their family fed and happy. But this collection of recipes is unique. We've put together 5 versatile proteins, 5 go-with-anything sauces, and 5 hardworking sides. Mix and match each of these recipes (we designed them all to work together), and you have four months of fast, easy dinners. That's 125 recipes you can reference endlessly for a dinner plate that will never be boring. Find your family's favorites, save them, pin them, print them. Then on busy weeknights when you need something you know they'll love and enjoy, you have an almost-bottomless resource at your disposal.

Sauce: Tarragon-Mustard Rémoulade
For this traditional French sauce, we cut the fat and calories by using a base of canola mayonnaise, and then we season it with shallots, parsley, mustard, capers, and tarragon.
An quick side salad with cannellini beans lends healthy plant-based protein to your meal, and a simple DIY dressing keeps sodium low by using less salt than bottled versions you'll find in the grocery store.
Get your daily dose of vitamin A with this nutritious side. In addition to providing you with 400% of your daily vitamin A requirement, you'll receive a boost of vitamin C and fiber. So grab your thyme, butter, milk, salt, and pepper, and start mashing.
