In the Kitchen With Molly

Need a hand in the kitchen? Molly can help.


From planning meals to putting them on the table, feeding a family is a big job. In the Kitchen With Molly is the next best thing to having a personal chef.


This new E-Book contains 12 weeks of menu plans, one for each month of the year, plus shopping lists and printable recipe cards. With the planning done for you, you'll have more time to spend enjoying your family or tackling other projects that need your attention.


And with Molly, the focus is always on frugality. These recipes not only save you time, but they also save you money. Trimming dollars from the grocery bill can add up to a significant difference in the family budget, and having meals planned means you'll eat out less often. That's good for your wallet and your waistline.

It's National Grapefruit Month!


Tart and tangy, grapefruit is not only full of flavor but is also packed with nutrition! Grapefruit is full of vitamin C, which boosts immune function, and lycopene which may help deter heart disease and certain types of cancer. It also happens to be low in cholesterol and calories, and just one glass of juice will give you a full serving of fruit! 


In this week's newsletter, I'm going to share everything you need to know about grapefruit. You can find out more about this tasty fruit's nutritional benefit's here.

All About Grapefruit


  • Grapefruit trees can produce for 30 to 40 years. That's a great investment! In 2006 the United States produced 1.23 million tons of grapefruit. Find out more fun facts about grapefruit here.
  • When choosing a grapefruit, you want it to be firm and springy and feel heavier than it looks. Grapefruit is in season from January to July.
  • Grapefruit should be kept at room temperature before being juiced.
  • There is more than one way to eat a grapefruit! Try it broiled, in sorbet, as a glaze over chicken, in salsa, or in salad dressing!
  • It can be used to make a face mask!
  • If you spill grapefruit juice, you can find out how to prevent a stain here.
  • Grapefruit caninterfere with some prescription medications. Please be aware of this before consuming grapefruit if you take prescription medications.
  • If you already have grapefruit or grapefruit juice on your grocery list, be sure to check out the free recipe book and stainless steel grapefruit spoons you can get from when you purchase Florida grapefruit or grapefruit juice!
