Each month we have some wonderful volunteers who “test” out the menu prior to publication. They do an amazing job of helping to eliminate confusion and mistakes. They may not catch everything but they sure do catch A LOT! If you are interested in test cook, feel free to volunteer. Here is a little bit about this month’s test cooks:
- Meredith Koplinka: I am a stay at home mom to twin toddlers–a girl and a boy–who keep me on the go! Cooking meals with the twins scrambling at my feet can be a challenge, to say the very least. I really appreciate having a freezer full of healthy, homemade meals ready to go. As a family, we enjoy traveling, exploring local attractions, farming at our CSA, and taking long walks together.
- Danielle Krahl: Danielle is a stay-at-home Mom with 4 kids. She is very involved in Scouts. In their free time, her family likes to camp, bike, garden and explore new parks.
Are you new to Once A Month Mom or once a month cooking (oamc) in general? If so, you might want to spend a few minutes (or hours) on the Get Started Series. If you are in a real hurry to catch on we have written some simple steps for getting started. Welcome!
