Welcome to Kitchn's new series A Week of Dinners where we show you how people put dinner on the table for their family, thanks to the five weeknight recipes they rely on.

Erin Alderson, one of our favorite bloggers, lives in Sacramento, California, with her husband, Mike, and their 2-year-old son, Mack. She's the mastermind behind the gorgeous vegetarian food blog, Naturally Ella, and she also has her own business, Grove Haus Studio. She is the author of two cookbooks (The Easy Vegetarian Kitchen and The Homemade Flour Cookbook) and is currently working on a third. Oh, and she's also developed a bunch of awesome recipes for Kitchn (which you obviously need to check out.) When she's not puttering around in her kitchen or playing with her camera, she enjoys spending time with her family, hiking, and drinking lots of coffee.

Today Erin is going to let us in on her strategy for weeknight vegetarian cooking, how she works around the different diets in her household, and the five recipes that help her put dinner on the table.

How to Host an Empty Bowls Fundraiser to Fight Hunger — A New Way to Gather

For the past five years I've been helping my neighbors Adriana and Nina host an Empty Bowls event in our shared courtyard in Oakland, California. The basic purpose of Empty Bowls is to raise money for our local food bank, the Alameda County Community Food Bank. And while we've been super successful in doing that (we raised over $10,000 this year!), Empty Bowls is so much more than collecting checks and tallying up totals. Empty Bowls creates and strengthens our community, supports our local artists, celebrates delicious food and beautiful pottery, and educates people about hunger and poverty.

While it does take some work to put on an Empty Bowls gathering, it's a lot of fun and absolutely worth your time and effort. Here's how we did it.
