Mixing BowlsWhat is Gleeful Gourmets?

Gleeful Gourmets is the only resource you need to effectively plan your family’s weekly dinners.  I help busy individuals save time and money by planning and giving them complete weekly dinner plans including precise shopping lists, easy to follow, quick to prepare recipes.

What type of cuisine can I expect from Gleeful Gourmets?

As a food lover, I tried many types of cuisines and concluded that freshness is the most important factor in any cuisine.  Because I am planning for the whole family, I want to be sure both adults and kids will love what goes on the dinner table.  So freshness and fusion are the watchwords.  This way we can gently introduce different types of cuisines for everyone to appreciate!

What can I expect to see in a meal?

Gleeful Gourmets is all about healthy eating, so you will find a balanced protein, carbohydrates, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals in each meal plan.  A typical meal would consist of a main dish and two sides.  However, there will be exceptions in the casseroles, chili or pizzas where items are tastefully combined.

Do I need any cooking experience to follow your weekly dinner plans?

I am not a chef and I never taken any cooking classes, so if I can do it anyone can do it.  If you are a beginner, it will take a little time to get used to reading the recipes, but I will help you every step of the way!  My job is to simplify the process so that you can enjoy cooking for your family.

How long does it usually take to cook a meal?

Typically each meal should take between 30-60 mins. from start to finish depending on how comfortable you are in the kitchen.  Upon becoming a member, you will get our weekly special instructions so you can have the option to do the prep work in advance, like the night before to avoid any delays at dinner time each night.

Will I see repeated recipes?

You may see variations of a recipe but Gleeful Gourmets will not repeat an exact recipe throughout the year.  If your family absolutely loves something like Glee and her dad love BBQ short ribs, you will be able to access it any time you wish.

What is a family friendly meal?

Gleeful Gourmets considered a family friendly meal one that is tasty for everyone in the family.  There will be nothing too spicy that the kids can’t eat or anything strong tasting for first timers trying out new ethnic foods.

What if I have certain allergies?

That’s the great thing about cooking your own dinner; you know exactly what goes into your own food.  If you see an ingredient you are allergic to, just let me know and I’ll be happy to help recommend alternatives you could replace into the recipe.

Where are you getting all the recipes?

I get them from different recipe sites, food blogs and recipe books.  You can check out my Pinterest site or the reference link  for many of the sources.  Please note that each recipe is tested and many have been modified for simplicity.
