Time Saver: Cook Once – Have Meals for a Week


Cook once and eat a bunch of times is not a pipe dream…it’s completely do-able. And whether you start with a roasted chicken, a pot roast or (in this case) a meatloaf – it’s all good, different and way delicious, and a great time saver.

  1. Love your e-mails and show when I catch it. You are delightful and refreshing. Only thing is I am an 80 year old grandmother and often wish I were not, or that we had this kind of technology when I was young.
    I do think about my grandchildren and how useful you are for them. Hopefully they follow you. GREAT SHOW AND RECIPES, MY IDEA OF A GOOD COOKING SHOW!!!
