Julie Anne Rhodes membership giveaway!

Julie Anne Rhodes

We just put our Christmas tree up, so it’s officially the holiday season at the Torres house. Cue the shopping, the card sending, the baking, the wrapping, the traveling, and most of all, the meal planning.

Whether or not you’re hosting a huge holiday meal this season, chances are you’re feeling a little stressed about getting everything done in time for Santa to slide down that chimney and your in laws to march through that front door. And the last thing on your mind is making dinner.

This is exactly what Julie Anne Rhodes had in mind when she developed her recipe and lifestyle site, julieannerhodes.com. With The Personal Chef Approach, Julie Anne strives to save you time and money by providing weekly meal plans and accompanying grocery lists, along with how to videos and helpful forums. With just a few hours on the weekend, premium members of her site can cook up a week’s worth of meals, then have the rest of the week to relax with her provided heat and eat instructions.

I love discovering new recipe sites, and boy did I find some delicious ones from Julie Anne.

The first one that caught my eye was the Stewed Herb Chicken. I’m not a huge fan of cooking whole chicken breasts on the skillet {I’m weird about chicken in general}, but the photo made me drool, and in the end, in did not disappoint. I also had one happy husband after dinner.

Next I tried the Beef Stew, which was kind of a cross between an actual stew and a roast, and I liked that I could just throw in the ingredients and a hunk of meat into my dutch oven and be done. Plus, I was anxious to see how it measured up to Christian’s famous roasts that he loves to make. The verdict? Two thumbs up from each of us.

My absolute favorite meal from Julie Anne that is now a permanent fixture on the Torres menu has to be the Turkey Cheddar Burgers. Who would have thought that a burger filled with grated zucchini could be so freaking good? As Christian put it, “It taste’s like a real burger!” {That’s a compliment, Julie Anne!} Seriously my favorite thing.
