Hi! I’m Emily Dingmann and I help parents feel good about mealtime.
I’m a Family mealtime expert and Certified Intuitive Eating Counselor, home cook and recipe developer, and mom of two girls, living in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
I create a few types of different content on this site and my social media channels:
- Easy, family-friendly recipes (Bucatini Cacio e Pepe, Mexican Lentil Soup)
- Nutrition tips for kids (The hardest thing to do when it comes to feeding kids)
- Food-related mom and parenting hacks (Protein hack for kids)
When 5pm hits, it can be tough on everyone. The kids are whining. You’re exhausted. But dinner still needs to happen and everyone needs to eat. Do you feel like you have to choose between quesadillas (again!) and a gourmet meal?
I learned the hard way that it doesn’t have to be that way!
You see, pre-kids I loved spending an hour on relaxing dinners at home. But with an LA traffic commute and a baby who went to bed at 7pm, we ended up eating a LOT of Chipotle.
Eventually, I realized something had to shift. And maybe you’re realizing that too!

And I have even more help on getting weeknight dinners on the table, without SCRAMBLING…
Weeknight Dinner Menu Plan
This weeknight dinner menu plan will help you go from a stressed out, meal time scrambler, to a calm and confident meal time mom.
Weeknight dinners don’t have to be a source of stress and overwhelm.
There are three major issues when it comes to weeknight dinners:
- Having a plan
- One family meal
Dinner chaos happens when one of these pieces is missing, and I can help you complete the chaos puzzle.
It’s 5pm. Are you still trying to figure out what’s for dinner?
Menu Plans by My Everyday Table can help you out.
The plan addresses three major issues when it comes to weeknight dinners: having a plan, time, and one family meal.
You’ll save time, save money, waste less food, and feel calm when 5pm hits because your dinner is already planned.
