Hi! I'm Mary Ann, and I have been creating meal plans online for over 15 years. I am wife to a retired Marine, mother to two adult daughters, a tech geek, and a lover of all things food. I love cooking and organizing, but I hate spending a lot of unnecessary time in the kitchen. I love shortcuts & efficiency; they make more time for the other things I love—researching genealogy, reading, traveling, and enjoying the beaches near my home in coastal North Carolina.
