Gourmet cooking may be the last thing on your mind as a mama, but Marlee has some tips that make it do-able and shares why she thinks it’s important and matters even in today’s busy world.
So, you see the title of this post and you may be thinking, gourmet cooking? I’m barely surviving….no way I’m gonna be doing any “gourmet cooking” any time soon.
But I promise, there was some intention behind asking the amazing Marlee Brady of I Just Make Sandwiches to be on the podcast.
I spent several years working in food service management and commercial kitchens prior to becoming a mom and starting this community.
…and ya know what. So much of what I teach here I have learned from observing chefs and seeing HOW they are able to put a meal on the table quickly for a huge crowd.
Chefs are MASTERS of meal planning and meal prep ya’ll (though they might not call it that).
It was for that reason that I knew I had to get Marlee on the podcast to talk about gourmet cooking.
