Parents in this day and age rarely have time to breathe as they’re waking up early to drop the kids off at school, commuting to work, picking up the kids only to drop them off at soccer practice before finally getting home for some rest and relaxation.

She also doesn’t put up recipes exactly as she finds them. Stabenow first tries everything she makes before she puts it up on her website and sometimes uses her husband and children as guinea pigs for new recipes. And Stabenow isn’t afraid to change up recipes and adapt them if she believes it will make them better.
“I usually adapt stuff. I don’t put it exactly the way it is; it’s too hard sometimes. I know from cooking for this many years that there are ways to condense things, so I try and do that.”
No More ‘To Go’ may not be the perfect solution for all the busy parents but it provides a blueprint that can be followed. Or, if the idea of planning and preparing on the weekend is nauseating, then take a look at No More ‘To Go’. Your health and wallet will thank you.
