I help busy people in everyday kitchens learn how to prepare tasty and healthy meals. I’ll guide you through my efficient meal planning and shopping list organization to save you time and money.
Preparing meals can feel overwhelming.
Without a meal plan or basic cooking know-how, it's easy to settle for take-out, frozen, cold cereal, or even "sleep for dinner". I get it. Over the past 25 years, I have heard from a number of younger people four main reasons why it’s difficult to make quality, nightly meals.
I love good food and enjoy cooking, but I also work full time. So, I came up with my own strategy over the years for how to get nightly meals on the table for my family – with a minimal amount of time, stress, and expense.
I believe this strategy can work for other people, too!

How helpful is it?
"I was really pleased with how well it all went... didn’t feel overwhelmed. I felt excited to make the meals. I didn’t spend as much money and I hardly have any waste. I found it really helpful and valuable. (Enjoying the spinach bacon salad as I type!)People don’t know how to do this and it’s amazing because you are so passionate about food!"
My intentionally screen-free strategy.
I’ve checked out many digital meal-planning solutions, but I end up printing out my grocery list and recipes because this paper system is faster and easier. By the time you manage digital grocery lists, you’ll actually spend more time and money. I print my grocery list and recipes because:
A custom list is more efficient.
With meals planned in advance and your customized list leading you through the store, you’re in and out fast. You’ll also experience less food waste, and fewer impulse buys.
Paper is easier while shopping.
Grocery carts are germy and awkward to push one-handed. With a paper list, your phone can stay safe and clean in your purse or pocket. Also, no scrolling to see your whole list.
Printed recipes are easier to read.
Having a paper recipe right on the kitchen counter when cooking allows you to see everything at once. No device log in or scrolling (especially with food on your hands).
Printed recipes are easier to change.
When you try a new recipe, you may want to make adjustments or other notes. With a printed recipe, you can write on it to fit your preferences the next time you make it.
More control over grocery items.
Online shopping includes the teenage stock boy choosing your groceries, (and substituting, when out of stock). More affordable bulk food options are also not available.
Focus on others, not your screen.
Part of cooking fun is sharing time with others. It’s easier to focus attention on whoever is in the kitchen when devices are put away, (along with their interrupting notifications).
All of this for less than one nice dinner out with your family.
