Until we can all afford our own personal chefs, the next best thing is easily Relish!, a truly cool meal-planning service for busy parents. www.relishrelish.com.
This easy to use (really), mom-run website helps you prepare healthy, creative meals every week! You pick from a ton of excellent tested recipes, a very cleverly organized grocery list is automatically created, then all you do is hit the store for five days worth of home-cooked meals–not one of which takes more than 30 minutes to prepare.
You’ll find a whole lot to choose from including freezer meals, vegetarian menus, super-quick and slow cooker recipes. And you’ll find tons of kid’s faves that don’t include the word “nugget.”
For subscriptions at $7 a month, you’ll end up with five complete dinners for a family of four running you less than $95. Between the money savings and the anxiety savings, you’re coming out way ahead.

Here is how it works (from the Relish! Website):
Each week you choose from 15 different recipes (plus one dessert). Scale to your familiy’s needs, from 2 to 8 servings.
Select five each week and then the grocery list is populated. Go to the store one time and you’re armed with five incredibly easy (but delicious) entrees and sides in your refrigerator. Save money and time with an organized plan.
Well now Relish has generously offered one of my readers a free 1-year subscription ($58.80)!
