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.

What keeps your abode bright, beautiful, and bouncing along?


Relax, rejuvenate, and get real! Each month take the wonderful opportunity to learn along with Molly (and her special guests and experts) and make the most of your time and money.

Our daily lives often seem to run on overdrive. Too frequently a healthy, home-cooked meal is one of the things sacrificed. If only you had more time! Okay, maybe you really like to cook and it's worth all the effort it takes. But every day, day in and day out, perhaps two or even three meals a day .  .  .  14 to 20 meals a week, whew! A homemaker needs a reprieve!

The birds are singing, the snow is melting (for some of us), and the spring cleaning is done. There is just one thing left to do before starting the garden and enjoying the great outdoors: tax time.


Those two little words can create big anxiety, especially if you aren't prepared. In this week's newsletter, I offer some tips and tools to make tax season less overwhelming.

Hawaiian Nachos


Here is a new take on an old standby!




1 bag tortilla chips (14 ounces)

6 ounces ham or Canadian bacon, chopped

8 ounces canned pineapple chunks 

4 ounces shredded cheddar cheese

4 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese

2.25 ounces olives, sliced



  1. Evenly place the tortilla chips on a large plate.
  2. Layer on cheese, ham, olives, pineapple, and end with a second layer of cheese. This will keep your other toppings from falling off when you pick up a chip!
  3. Heat in the microwave until the cheese is melted.
