Armed with culinary prowess, practical advice, guest experts ranging from celebrity chefs to everyday parents in the trenches (you know, the real experts), a microphone and, yes, sometimes whiskey, Stacie and Meghan make life as the family cook easier. Or at least funnier.

Meal planning for real people!
Meal planning often feels aspirational to me, with lots of chopping and tiny containers and pretty pictures...which is a lot of work and doesn’t really match up to how my family eats. After listening to this podcast I have been able to do some real meal planning and am on a roll! So happy to stop wasting uneaten and uncooked food. And I especially appreciate the lightened mental load from being able to easily answer “What’s for dinner?” Thanks to the hosts for their playful, fun, and realistic podcast!
You don't have to have kids and a family to love this podcast. I'm learning so much about feeding myself and my husband! Meghan, Stacie, and their guests are so wonderful. Funny and informative!
Pour a glass of whiskey
As a Dad trying to help more with cooking and packing lunches, this podcast is super helpful. I understand how much work y’all are doing to feed those kiddos all the dang time!!
