I need new culinary challenges all the time, or I get bored with cooking. Luckily, my clients defined my cooking ADD as “variety”, and it soon became a strength they valued. Apparently my premium members are finding it advantageous too!

The weekly menu plan is digging them out of their same-old/same-old rut while taking the guesswork out of the equation – saving them time and money to do the things that matter most.

“My husband remarked that one of the great things about the PCA is that it’s forcing me out of my comfort zone into trying recipes that I might have not otherwise selected and the variety has been refreshing.”


Premium Members Sample Menu

Menu, recipes, grocery list, and heat to eat instructions, are all organized for you every week! Dinner will be one less thing to worry about when you can “heat to eat” in a snap. Every recipe on the menu has already been given the thumbs up (repeatedly) by my clients, so you’ll be adding variety and spice to your life that you can count on.

Trying new things is a huge advantage of the Personal Chef Approach (or PCA). It’s a great way to stretch your family’s culinary adventurism, and hone in on what works and what doesn’t in your household at the same time.

She may like a bite of it too!

Remember you can always throw a plain burger on the grill for that finicky child alongside the teriyaki burgers for everyone else in the household. She might just want to try a bite of yours when she smells those tantalizing aromas, and discover she likes something new!

Maybe your husband won’t eat seafood, but loves beef, and Junior only eats pasta.This can present a major problem with the classic approach to cooking dinner. Either you turn into a short order cook, or suffer the consequences with moans and whinges from anyone not getting their way. With the Personal Chef Approach – everyone can have what they want without YOU having to exert any extra effort to make it happen. The difference is you cook several meals once a week, not every single night! Dad can have his steak two nights running while you have the halibut, and little Jimmy eats his spaghetti.

Instead of my warbling on indefinitely here in this post, why don’t you all join me next Sunday between 1:00 PM – 2:00PM PST? I look forward to answering all of your questions, clarifying any doubts, and explaining how the PCA can be applied to your specific household.Until then, check out what you can expect to find in the recipe library with a taste of our recipe of the week!

    Absolutely love the PCA approach! Working great & I’m building up a nice stash of meals in the freezer. Actually planning on buying a small chest freezer to hold extras, especially in the winter when I have problems getting out to shop. A thought on getting kids to try the teryaki burgers. Make the one patty into sliders and use little buns or use a cookie cutter to make a bun out of bread. Kids love little burgers made just for them and this just might get them to try a new type of meat or flavouring. As for me, I’ll go for the burger minus the bun and make the five spice sweet potatoe oven fries along with some broccoli. Yum!

    The PCA approach was a life saver for me during and after my mother’s hospitalization. Coming home from a stressful day and finding delicious, healthy and home cooked meals ready in my fridge kept me from eating take-out. I was able to stay on my eating plan. I love how your recipes are expanding my taste buds and turning me into a more adventurous cook. 🙂

    Julie Anne,

    Just want to say that I love your PCA & ADD approach! The grocery list and menu plan have been a lifesaver for me this week.

    My life is crazy busy with working full-time and then coming home to work several more hours in my own business. It is so nice to come home and just pop dinner into the microwave. Not only a huge time saver but a money saver as well as I’m not stopping and picking up fast food. Plus, I’m eating healthy balanced meals that are satisfying. Oh…they make great lunches for work too!

    If anyone is sitting on the fence about joining the Premium Membership I can’t stress enough just to at least try it. I think you’ll love it as I do. I enjoy the variety and I’ve found out that I’m not completely helpless in the kitchen.

    Plus, it’s so nice to have at least one area of my life organized!

    Happy cooking!
