Mexican Pizza and Corn on the Cob with Cayenne Parmesan Butter {CookingPlanit.com Review}

A few weeks back, when CookingPlanit approached me to participate in their promotion and giveaway I had no idea what CookingPlanit really was. I immediately jumped on their site to check it out. I was interested in the idea of being able to search for an entire menu rather than piecing dishes together from here and there. I was also intrigued by the idea of the step by step intructions to make sure your dishes were all finished at the same time. That is one of my weaknesses when it comes to cooking. Just ask Kevin. Between poor planning, and having to take 50 million pictures of a dish before I serve it, he is pretty used to eating food that is, well, less than hot shall we say?

I spent quite some time browsing through the site before I could choose just one meal. I found so many I wanted to make! I love the fact that you can browse by the chef recommended or top rated dishes or you can search by key word. I experimented putting in things like fish, soup, pasta, easy, and finally my favorite, Mexican.


Then I browsed through all of the results until one jumped out at me. The "Tortilla Night" meal sounded so good. Personal Mexican Pizzas with Corn on the Cob with Cayenne Parmesan Butter? Yes please!!


I reallllllllly loved the add to groceries function because you just click on it and it is saved for you. If you have the app for your iPhone or iPad you can just take them to the store, open up the program, and BINGO there is your shopping list! If not, you can print the list or even email it to yourself or someone else.

So once I had all of my groceries ready and the kids came over, my daughter and I grabbed my computer and were off to the kitchen to cook. I let her be in charge of the process. She went to CookingPlanit.com and signed in to my free account. Clicked on "Bobbi's Planit" at the top left of the screen and found the meal that was saved when I added it to my grocery list. Once she pulled the page up she clicked on Prep & Cook , chose the number of people that were eating, and away we went.


It shows you when your meal will be done and then walks you through the process step by step. My daughter was a little bit nervous about being in charge, but once we got started she loved it. The result was a fantastic meal that was ready to go all at once!! I can't wait to choose my next meal!
