I’m a huge fan of simple, flavorful recipes, and M4M hasn’t disappointed me yet.
Based on the Secrets of a Busy Cook as shown in the Busy Cook's Pyramid, our weekly meal plans are more than just a list of recipes. The meal plans:

- avoid wasting food by incorporating planned leftovers in future meals
- take advantage of quick and easy recipes
- make efficient use of your time in the kitchen to avoiding repeating the same tasks over and over
- take advantage of tools & techniques to make life easier
