I'm so glad that you and Megan have been able to work out being Pampered Chef Consultants.
Love your website!Inexpensive, but delicious food. Woo hoo!!
My question is: Would you say that most of your meals are healthy? My husband's diabetic and we are working to help him lose some weight.
He'll never be a skinny cook, but he can be a healthy one. Since we're foodies it's been difficult for me to maintain a healthy, delicious meal plan on a BUDGET. I'm really hoping that your blog will help me with that and save me some time in coming up with my own meal plan and shopping lists.
