Do you ever get home after work and realize you have nothing to cook for dinner? You look in the pantry and cannot find a way to make a meal. Then, you end up ordering fast food because by this point you are starving.  There is a new cooking club that is perfect for you! The goal of the cooking club is to get a group of people together to swap recipes, taste recipes, and prepare meals that go from freezer to oven / slow cooker to make healthy food fast!
