I test and hand select the recipes in each MealRecipe. Dishes are balanced with complimentary flavors, contrasting textures and rich in healthy ingredients. A single dinner MealRecipe gives you flexibility to build your own weekly menu. Watch for holiday and entertaining MealRecipes in the future.
My grocery lists include all ingredients for each MealRecipe. It’s divided into categories for easy shopping, i.e. Meats/Poultry, Produce, Dairy, Bottled/Canned, Dry Goods, Baking/Spices and Bakery. Pantry Items are listed such as salt, pepper, sugar, flour, baking powder, etc. I’ll also share ‘Money Saver’ shopping suggestions.
A color-coded timeline visually shows the progression of all the dishes on the menu in one view. Symbols indicate the type of action required and numbers correspond to the ExecutionSteps. At any time during preparation you can quickly glance at the MealMap to see where you are in the meal progression.
Similar to recipe instructions I integrate the steps for all recipes in the meal in optimal order. If you follow my steps, the dishes will be ready at the same time. Steps include color-coded ingredient lists and numbered instructions plus references to photos when available. When helpful it prompts you to prepare ingredients for future dinners in the MealRecipe, reducing prep time later in the week.
Tailoring the meal to your preferences, I share ingredient substitution suggestions, notes and cooking techniques. I also suggest serving ideas for leftovers or doubling recipes. It may include ways to convert the recipe into a new dish.
This is a list of pots, pans, bowls, plates and kitchen appliances you need to make the MealRecipe. It provides substitution suggestions, too. For example, if you don’t have a rice cooker or a wok, I’ll suggest a pot or pan that would also work.

To order a custom MealRecipe created with your specific food preferences, email firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll send you a ‘Preferences Questionnaire’ requesting information on the following:
+ indicate foods you love and foods you’d rather miss
+ provide feedback on dishes you enjoy
+ give heat preferences; mild, medium and hot
+ share international foods you prefer
+ identify food allergies
+ list kitchen equipment you own, i.e food processor, blender, stand mixer
+ check special pans you own, i.e. wok, rice cooker, crockpot or grill pan
Once you submit the preferences questionnaire I’ll send a quote and projected delivery date. Your MealRecipe will be crafted especially for your preferences. Delivery depends on the number of custom MealRecipes orders in the queue. MealRecipes can be used as often as desired.
1 How do I choose the right MealRecipes for my family?
The Product Description contains the dish names and descriptions. You may try my free MealRecipe Wheatberry Pancake Breakfast to see how it works and how much time it saves to make a delicious meal.
2 Are the recipes reliable?
I test each recipe and include detailed instructions. Recipes include an ingredients list and information about cooking techniques. Please feel free to contact me with any concerns.
3 How long does it take to prepare each meal?
Most meals take 30-45 minutes.
4 What if I don’t have the right size pots and pans?
These plans use common pans and dishes. It is helpful to have a few basics such as a small and medium saucepan, large pot, medium and large skillet, several sizes of mixing bowls, a baking sheet, and a couple of plates.
5 What if I don’t have the right kitchen equipment?
I share instructions on substitutions such as, how to use hand beaters for a stand mixer, or a blender in place of a food processor.

The DishDesigner suggests ingredient substitutions to customize your dishes. Select a menu that will accommodate your preferences. You may also order a custom menu plan.
