What busy moms are saying about the BFF Weekend Cookbook

Creamy Tomato Basil Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Creamy tomato soup with rich roasted cauliflower and basil infused olive oil

“My 9 year old says 5 stars and licked the plate!”


“The basil infused olive oil is a game changer”


“This is my son’s favorite meal, and even my super-picky daughter loves it! We have it every week, I make it one week and freeze some for the next 2 weeks We love it!”


“My kids couldn’t tell there was cauliflower in there”


Zucchini Alfredo and Parmesan Crusted Chicken

Tender spiralized zucchini in a rich Parmesan cream sauce paired with Italian herb and Parmesan crusted chicken breast

“I actually like the zucchini better than pasta”


“I’ve always had zoodles that were soggy or mushy, then I tried the wide spiral–what a difference! No more mushy zoodles!”


“The crispy chicken is really good! I made ‘nuggets’ sized ones for my kids and they loved them”


Broiled Salmon with Garlic Basil Butter

Broiled wild caught Alaskan salmon lightly seasoned topped with a rich garlic basil butter sauce

“I am not a fan of salmon so I put the basil butter on chicken, it was delicious!”


“Like pesto, but better!”


“Really easy! My kids made the butter basil”


My Best Friend Lost 6 lbs in 5 days

My best friend was super frustrated with her new diet

She was given a list of foods and was sent on her way. She hated everything she was supposed to eat and had no intention of sticking with it…

I invited her to come visit me

I had my hands full with my young twins, but I bribed her with a best friend weekend full of bonding and babies. I knew if I could just show her that healthy food could taste AMAZING, she could be successful…

She lost 6 lbs in 5 days

We had an wonderful weekend full of baby snuggles, best friend laughs, and delicious meals. And she lost weight. She left the weekend not only lighter, but with a whole new relationship with food

I Put the “Secrets” Into a Cookbook

“What is your secret? How did she lose the weight?”

Every time I tell the story of our best friend weekend, everyone wants to know how we did it… It was not magic, just REAL FOOD! HEALTHY FOOD! Food bursting with FLAVOR!

I’m a Pharmacist, Chef, and Mother of twins. I believe that healthy food should taste AMAZING! If you don’t ENJOY eating healthy, you won’t do it (and your kids really won’t do it!)

I put all the recipes into a cookbook

It wasn’t magic. She didn’t take diet pills or starve herself. She lost weight by simply eating delicious food. I put all of the recipes we cooked that weekend into a cookbook. The BFF Weekend Cookbook
