Seasonal fruits and veggies, fresh herbs, and whole grains play a big role in recipes from The Vegan Menu, a website that publishes weekly vegan meal plans. The plant- and whole foods-based meals, which don’t include unhealthy additives like oils, processed flours, sugars, or dirt, are inexpensive and easy to make. In fact, many are one-pot dinners, tested and approved by vegans.

Every Friday, subscribers get a new meal plan for five weeknight meals with a grocery list broken down by aisle. Each dinner feeds two with enough leftovers for lunch the next day. In addition, free recipes for snacks, desserts, and breakfasts are available on The Vegan Menu's website.

Couples rarely enjoy a third wheel on a date, but Chef Michael is no ordinary third wheel. The certified personal chef whips up restaurant-quality dishes?such as pasta crepes stuffed with ricotta and napa valley lamb?in home kitchens, transforming cozy nights into special occasions. He can also craft smorgasbords of tapas for ladies? nights, cater small dinner parties, or enhance football games with handmade snack spreads. In his hands-on cooking classes, he teaches his students not only to make similar repasts at home, but to pair their food with appropriate beverages, such as steak with pinot noir, or swordfish with a cocktail of ocean water and Great Blue-dini Kool-Aid.

P. Michele Talley, also known as The Newlywed Guru, knows that transitioning into a life together requires more than a marriage certificate. For the past 20 years, she has been researching stable marriages, and educating couples on the keys to long lasting partnerships--from planning honeymoons to cooking gourmet spreads together, rather than just both holding the handle on the can opener.

Key West native Chef James helms The Chef 4 U, channeling 10 years of experience as a culinary teacher, personal chef, and caterer. During classes, the sounds that fill the kitchen grow gradually more confident as students learn to slice veggies, apply the proper bend of citric juices to ceviches, and squeeze salt from seawater for margaritas. The menus for classes and precooked meals alike are ripe with influences from Cuban, European, and Asian culinary traditions, which peep through in shredded pork, wine sauces, and miso glazes. While working in the kitchen to sate his own clients, Chef James flips through a rolodex of ingredients he went to school with in order to craft menus for vegetarian and gluten-free tastes.
