Feeding a family can be fun or frustrating, simple or complicated, rewarding or fraught with guilt and resentment. The one thing it will always be? Necessary. If you have a family, they have to eat, and in this episode we talk about how that works – from grocery shopping to meal planning to gaining confidence as a home cook.
This is a big topic, and we’ll be sure to revisit it in a future episode. Share your comments, questions, and challenges below – we’d love to hear from you!
