Give a try!

I got the email about this service...I'm sure several of us did.

But instead of dismissing it it and deleting it, I decided to give this a try because I can use some help with the meal planning. I need meals that are fast, simple, cheap, stretch far, and low points for weight watchers---yet tasty enough for kids. let's see what did I honestly think?

I honestly thought this site was good.

And you know I'd say if I thought otherwise.

I found my favorite meal plan---currently called Careful and Carefree--which suited all of my categories. I typed in that I had chicken and fresh broccoli on hand (and not much else) and it gave me several easy recipe ideas.

You can save recipes into favorites, and of course, you can print everything out.

There is an incredible array of recipe types and different styles of meal plans in case you are not exactly like me.

The kitchen notes section contains everything you could never find in the Index of the Betty Crocker cookbook you got when you got married...oh wait, again, maybe you are not me. has a clean design and layout that is very easy to navigate through. You know this is big for me. I can't stand disorganized. ;)

It's a good and useful site. Give it a try if you are looking for something that will plan your meals for you according to your needs and then create a shopping list for you.

Sound good? Then go to

Even better, here's a discount: Enter RAVINM-38 as the Sponsoring Identifier when completing the registration form and receive $5 off the subscription price.

I've really been enjoying the site as well. My favorite emails from company sites are the ones where they actually offer something I can use! lol.

I'm actually planning meals again. My family is very scared. LMAO

You have no idea how bad I need help planning meals. There's a post in
there somewhere. That's how bad! Thanks for the info :)

I nearly always have a fridge full of food, potential meals, but it's the 'what to make ' with it that often leaves me floored.
