Life Beyond TV Meals, What to Cook and How to Cook It Contest

If your life depends on Pringles and TV Dinners day in day out, are'nt you tired of it.

Jane Hornby comes to the rescue.

She will not be there to hold your hand while you discover what cooking real food and most important serving it and tasting it can feel like.

What she will do is guide you through the process.

If you can already handle cooking pasta or making an omelette, even scrambled eggs she can take you One Step Beyond without the Madness.

She's not a snob. She cares about what you eat like any good food mother does.

If I did not sell you yet on the pleasures of cooking with Jane, forgive me.
