Feed your family simply, healthfully, frugally – without spending too much time or energy thinking about it.
Have you noticed that most home management systems claim that having a menu plan is essential? It’s true. Knowing what is for dinner and having the ingredients on hand promotes peace in our minds and homes.
But do you realize how many steps are actually involved in menu planning? Typical menu planning involves multiple dependent steps:
- Find out what’s on sale or what coupons you have.
- Find recipes you can cook and want to eat.
- Figure out what ingredients you need to cook those recipes.
- Try to mesh the ingredients you need with what’s on sale.
- Make the grocery list.
- Remember what you’re going to make for dinner when, and pull it off.
- Use the perishables before they go bad.
Dinner shouldn’t be that hard.
Simplified Dinners takes the thinking out of the whole dinner cycle of planning, shopping, and cooking, and makes it easy for you to customize the healthy, whole-food recipes according to your family’s tastes.
It is possible to cook good, healthy food without a pantry full of specialized ingredients, and it is possible to make easy dinners without shortcut, preprepared products.
Your plan includes so much of what I already have in our house, allows me creativity when I want it, but takes away the pressure of having to plan when my brain is tired.Jennifer OttSimplified Dinners enables anyone to transition toward home-prepared, real, whole foods cooking — even those less confident in the kitchen.
Dinner: streamlined, yet flexible.
The format and style were totally intuitive. I love that it offers flexibility with some structure, where I have some room to improvise but don’t have to reinvent the wheel.Willa Ryan
Your taquitos recipe is my fav so far! Cooking is not something I really enjoy, so I am really happy to have a nice cookbook with ingredients that are normal!Zoae Spackman
