- Cooking, PlanToEat.com
The household task that seems the most never-ending to me is cooking. I love to cook, but I’m responsible for 19 meals and about 10 snacks for 4-5 people every week. Ever since our move, I’d been sliding toward a rotating schedule of tortilla soup, lentil soup,potato soup, etc.
However, this fall I stumbled across PlanToEat.com, and life is much better, both for the cook and the eaters.
I love how I can:
- Import recipes from anywhere on the web
- Type recipes in by hand
- Share recipes with any friends using the software
- Print a populated grocery list, making it easier to cook with new ingredients
- See photos with every recipe, which encourages me to try things that are new, or helps me remember how much we liked something we haven’t had in a while.
- See how often/recently we’ve had something
- Add “steps”, like soaking grains X-days in advance, so I don’t forget to soak beans, thaw meat, etc.
The company will refund your money at any point if you are unhappy. You can also try it out for a full month before paying. You can also opt to pay $4.95/month if you’re not wanting to jump in with the annual plan.
I bought this software for:
- all the siblings on both sides of the family who cook (5/8),
- and six friends.
Can you tell that I love it? It’s the reason I was brave enough to try this amazing baked apple cinnamon oatmeal recipe and this curry vegetable slow-cooker business that I would never have tried before, given how I hate to write down ingredients on the grocery list. It was the biggest homerun I’ve had in a while.
Whether you love to cook or you hate to cook, PlanToEat.com is going to solve some of the biggest headaches you have in the kitchen (and pantry and grocery store). Try it!
Next up: I will be posting some tutorials on how to get the most value out of your Plan To Eat subscription.
