What you're saying..

I just wanted to thank you for "Desperation Dinners".  I'm a wife and mom of two little girls, who is also a civil engineer who decided to attend nursing school.  My crazy schedule leaves me little time to cook. Now I can prepare yummy meals for my family every night in less time than it takes for pizza to be delivered!

Thank you so much!!
