Wow, that sounds like a great gift!

I just spent some time entering recipes and trying out your software and I am in love!! Thank you! I looked for something like this for years, and even bought some software about 10 years ago that was awful. You are an answer to a prayer, freeing up my menu planning time so I can do other things. Thank you so much!

I have saved so much on my grocery bill by using this site. I just pull up my shopping list on my smart phone and stick to my list. It also saves me time. I used to meal plan and plan out my shopping list on paper, writing and erasing and re-arranging. Now Im done in 20 mins tops. I could go on and on but this site is fantastic.

OMG-where have you been all my life — I have been wanting to meal plan for the past two years and the task is so daunting!!! I think you just saved me a zillion hours and with 17-month old twins...that is much appreciated.
