Dream Dinners

Category: Food — admin @ 1:59 pm

One of the GNPDX staff interns has an addiction to The Food Network.  It is seemingly on constantly at our corporate headquarters.  The part that is most frustrating about any of those cooking shows, is that the host can whip up some gourmet item in half an hour … but the reason it looks so easy is they have a staff of people who chop, grate, pour, measure and clean up all of their ingredients.  All the host does is dump everything into a bowl in the right order.

Imagine if you could star in your own cooking show?  once a week, have a staff prep your materials and tidy up afterwards, all you have to do is mix and bake.

It happens everyday at Dream Dinners.  You pick from several home cooked recipes and for the cost of the materials at the grocery store, you can make amazing meals to take home to your family.

Even niftier, they recently launched a special line for people with diabetes.
