You enjoy cooking. You look forward to dinner together as a family. You like to know that what you've prepared will be delicious and healthy. You just don't have the time or resources to plan your meals, find the recipes, and accommodate all of those last minute trips to the store. Now you can start with a weekly menu plan, tasty and nutritious recipes, and a  grocery list to shop for the entire week in one or two visits.

This site will provide you with everything you need for 6 nights of successful family dining.  I plan to update the weekly meal plan once a month, and I will update the sample newsletter twice a month, or you can visit the link below for information on more frequent delivery of your Recipe For Success.

By the way,  I am a cook not a web designer; this site will never boast of being anything but a simple text-based source for family meal planning.  If you have really enjoyed any one particular feature of this site, why not drop me a line.  If you link this page to your site, let me know and I'll return the favor.

So...What's For Dinner?

Me and my inspiration.

FAQ

What is your background?
This is a recent picture of myself and my 5 year old daughter Caroline. I have worked in the food service business for 10 years all told, and also in my home kitchen for as many years.

Where do your recipes come from?
Many of my recipes are original. I do use classic names where recipes are similar to others already published. I always note the source/author, when using recipes by permission that I have found or only slightly modified.

How do you calculate your nutritional information?
I use MasterCook: Cooking Light 4.0, which is also the format of the recipes. If you have this software
you can easily import my recipes.

Why do I need to go to the store twice a week?
I shop on Mondays and Thursdays so that I can use the freshest of ingredients, accommodate last minute weekend plans, re-stock the pantry after the weekend, and avoid the crowds. 

Do you prepare everything from scratch?
No. I use more than a few prepared foods.

How can I store my fresh herbs?
I do like to try to use fresh herbs; leftovers can be chopped and frozen in water using ice cube trays.

Do you have bread recipes other than for a bread machine?
No. I am not really a baker. I'm learning though...any suggestions?

How do I subscribe to Fridays Free?
Fridays Free is our free subscription ezine that delivers Friday's complete dinner menu to you every Wednesday. You may subscribe by entering your Email address below, or by direct subscription to the Mailing List using SUBSCRIBE DIGEST as the subject.

What do you do with the recipes that are posted to the Recipe Board?

or articles for any other purpose without your express consent. Other viewers of the white board
should also agree that they will not submit the content of the white board to any other food/recipe
