Wow, that sounds like a great gift!

I want y'all to know that I LOVE the site!! I have been a notebook planner for ages, but it usually gets lost in the shuffle about halfway through the month, and shopping lists that way are a nightmare. This site makes it incredibly simple!

For the price of a few times you would have ordered takeout because you were not organized...this would be a great gift for a cook in your life who likes technology. I love it and appreciate the "small business feel" of the people who run it (if you have a good suggestion to make it better, they will try to make it happen). If you look at recipes on Pinterest, etc. but really need to pull those recipes into real life, their bookmarklet snags those recipes and organizes them for you.

I just wanted to say that I am so happy that you offer a thirty-day free trial even though the product seems very reasonably priced to begin with. It's just one more thing for a busy mom to remember to cancel a membership that I'm not using so I likely wouldn't have tried this without the free trial option. And I'm so glad I did! I have accidentally turned my children into processed/fast food junkies because we're always so busy that I got into the habit of just grabbing something on the run or, at most, heating something up at home. I have been using plan to eat for almost a month now and my children (unsurprisingly) have not been overly impressed with my efforts at cooking real food and eating at home. But last night, finally, my older son said, "Wow Mom, that was really good. You should make that again!" Music, symphony really, to my ears! Not to mention the stress-reduction of knowing what's for dinner that night and having the ingredients in the house, ready to go, and not spoiled already!!

Everything I've ever wanted in a meal planning program is here, and more! I find most of my recipes online, and the ability to import a recipe by copying the web address is so incredibly easy. With two young kids at home, this site helps save us precious time in planning and meal prep, and helps us control our grocery budget as well. I am a HUGE fan!
