It's spring, the days are getting longer and warmer. Do you want to go inside after work and spend time cooking? No way! You want a quick & easy meal your family will eat.

Check out five of our favorite go-to meals that take less time to make than ordering take-out.

What's your dinner solution? Tell us to win a $75 gift card to your favorite grocery store!

Fantastic Taco Casserole

Try something different on Taco Tuesday with an easy casserole submitted by SheSpeaks member JustMissAsh. Customize it with your favorite taco ingredients so it's sure to please everyone. You can even make this taco casserole in advance so you can just reheat at dinner time. Check out the recipe here.

Easy Chicken Teriyaki with Rice

For a healthy but sweet dish, try this Chicken Teriyaki. SheSpeaks member mvalenzuela makes hers with broccoli, carrots & green beans but you can use whatever veggies you prefer. Unlike most teriyaki dishes, this one isn't a stir-fry, so you don't have to be watching it on the stove the whole time it is cooking. Try it here.

Best Ever Sloppy Joes

Thanks to SheSpeaks member Lizzie21 for submitting this versatile meal that both kids and adults will love. You can even serve these Sloppy Joes as sliders at your next party. Make them with turkey meat and pair them with a salad if you want to go the healthier route, or use ground beef and serve with fries if you don't! Find all the info here.

Pasta with Vegetables & Goat Cheese

For a vegetarian option that will fill you, try Pasta with Vegetables & Goat Cheese. Once again, you can use your favorite veggies, but SheSpeaks member emimorgan recommends including fresh corn if you can get it. It's a delicious, refreshing meal. Find the recipe here.

Quick Three-Bean Chili

Chili usually takes a long time to simmer, which is why we love this recipe submitted by SheSpeaks member Suehna - it takes just 30 minutes, start-to-finish. It's a hearty meal but it's still good for you, especially when made with chopped turkey meat. It's the perfect go-to meal. You can get the recipe here.
