Make Meals Simple ft. Allison Schaaf

I’ll be honest, cooking and meal planning has never come easy to me. If you’ve listened to Simple Families for long, you’ve heard me sing the praises of a meal-planning company called PrepDish and its founder Allison Schaaf. Although this episode of my chat with Allison is not sponsored, I couldn’t wait to share more about how the simple tool PrepDish provides, in the form of a weekly PDF, has simplified my life around family meals.
