Don’t just take my word for how much fun you can have with the PCA™, the convenience, or the oodles of time and money you will save! Here is feedback that Members have been sharing about the recipes, and the weekly menu plans week after week.

  • OMG! I LOVE THIS NEW BUILD YOUR OWN MENU PLAN OPTION!!!! I am creating the most mouth-watering menu from Julie Anne’s recipes. This is FANTASTIC. Can you tell I’m excited? ~ Susanna Carlisi
  • I just want to thank you, Jewels, for making my kitchen life easier. The PCA™ saves me so much time, money, and calories! ~ Suzanne Schroeder
  • Julie Anne’s Personal Chef Approach™ to cooking has made my kitchen life a cinch, and made me feel like a success at the same time. ~ Lane Buckman
  • I HATED cooking before becoming a member. Each recipe you post, each weekly menu I get as a member has a domino effect on how I cook, how my family eats, and how healthy we are.
  • My membership to this site has literally transformed the way I cook and the way my family eats. ~ Jodi Zulueta
  • The ONLY way Raven will eat her vegetables? “Mommy, is this from Julie Anne?” If I say yes, she’ll eat it. If I say no, she’ll say, “Mommy, you need Julie Anne. She’s a chef! ~ Jodi Zulueta & Raven Zulueta
  • You’ve convinced me that even though I’m alone, I still deserve to have good, healthy meals. You’ve also taught me to take a chance and try cooking when I truly felt that I was a lost cause. ~ Ruthee MacDonald
  • My kids are healthier, happier and being able to work on something with them right up until 10 minutes before a healthy meal goes on the table is a fantastic gift. ~ Rachel Cree-Lowe
  • Her training guides are FOOLproof, her cuisine is modern, inspired and innovative, for any occasion you can think of and all the days in between. Plus, she’s hot. Come on foodie men! It’s a week by week system that’s quite genius, actually. Even for the culinarily challenged. ~ James Burkeen
  • Julie Anne (or Jewels as she is known) is very hands on with the website and her community. Such a relief to know that the woman who inspires you is with you every step of the way and delivers such a vital source of assistance and is actually the one who is helping. ~ Kendra Campbell
  • You`ve made me believe that cooking can be fun, and that learning to enjoy new foods is something to look forward.
  • Freezer looks like Foodie Wonderland! Pick entree, add salad, some fruit and I’ve got a complete dinner. Your menus rock!
  • A very low price for added peace of mind. Such a stress reliever, cost effective, healthy and space saving way of feeding yourself and family. I cook on the day electricity is cheapest so the oven and dishwasher aren’t using as much then the fridge and freezer are neatly stocked for quick meals during a busy or slow week. LOVE it. ~ Rachel Cree-Lowe
  • Rushing into the house at 6PM after a late-running t-ball practice, and pulled up Jewel’s Shepherd’s Pie recipe. At 6:40, my husband said, “Mmmmmmmm!!!” and scooped himself a second helping. Thanks, Jewels! ~ Suzanne Schroeder
  • Now that I have structure with Jewel’s recipes, menu plans, incredible support system with both her and the wonderful women here in the Jewel’s online world, I am feeling better about myself, adopting better, healthier behavior, and teaching my kids the same. ~ Simone Burkeen
  • I know that all of my entrees have ingredients that I want to have in them, no scary additives, and are portioned out appropriately for me since I don’t eat huge servings. This way of cooking ahead just makes sense on so many levels... ~ Ruthee MacDonald
  • I have to tell you, without PCA™, I wouldn’t be able to do all that I do, AND feed my family well, AND actually eat WITH them. ~ Jodi Zulueta
  • I served your chilli-cumin rubbed rib-eyes for dinner, last night, with steamed asparagus, couscous cooked in beef stock, and skewers of shrimp rubbed with the chili-cumin seasoning. EVERYONE ate everything. THANK YOU! ~ Lane Buckman
  • Our party underway. Garlicy roasted broccoli in the oven. Recipe by@JulieAnneRhodes. Turkey and roast beef ready! YUM… BTW, the broccoli was devoured by everyone, even non-broccoli lovers. Everyone should join your website!
  • This is my “go to” site to access trusted, delicious, recipes, to chat with like-minded people about cooking, entertaining, menu planning and family life etc. A really user friendly format, pleasing graphics and Julie Anne is great about posting new information and chiming in on conversations regularly. ~ Kim Cuccia
  • I am so glad I found this site! The recipes are to die for, every single one is a guaranteed hit! Sure, it may not have as many recipes (yet!) as some other cooking site, but the thing I like is that all the recipes are tried and true and turn out perfectly even for a not-so-great cook as myself. Even though I have perused many cooking sites, this is truly the only one that’s given me confidence to cook as I know the results will be great! As an unexpected bonus, the members of the forum are very helpful! I have to admit that reading forum posts makes me feel like I’m like sitting down to have a coffee and chat with friends. I almost didn’t write this review because I don’t want too many people in on my little piece of paradise in cyberspace. :-)
  • This site has saved me huge amounts of time and more importantly, so much less hassle at meal time. I have two girls… 4 and 5 and a picky husband. Previously, I was cooking up to three different meals per night. I'm now able to relax knowing a full week of dinners are already done. ~ Rachel Cree-Lowe
  • After chowing down Jewels’ Slow Cooker German‐Style Pot Roast, my sister-in-law said she loved it and my husband gave it the rare and coveted “A” grade. Thanks for yet another delicious and stress-free meal, Jewels! ~ Suzanne Schroeder
  • As a mom of four that works full time, runs a small business, and has a husband working nights, the PCA™ has made evenings far more simpler. I love not having to think about what to make because the menu is already planned! ~ Jodi Zulueta
  • I can vouch for the PCA™ method! I cook a few items and can eat for almost a month since I am on my own. Thanks to Julie Anne, I’m eating healthier meals, shopping less so saving more. ~ Ruthee MacDonald
  • I LOVE LOVE LOVE this weeks recipes! I have one problem though, I just don’t know which one to make first! ~ Louise Taylor

  • Nobody is more saintly in the kitchen than Julie Anne with her delicious food perfectly designed to keep us healthy and wise. ~ Amanda Eliasch
  • I used to hate cooking! Maybe it is your support in the forum. Maybe it is the blogs that inspire me, but I really enjoy putting together a healthy meal for my family. It isn’t a chore. It’s a source of pride. ~ Shelly Jonas
  • My husband absolutely loved the food – we had such variety and ate so well this week. I have a few of the recipes in the freezer too, so this weekend I’ll probably only have to prepare about 3 dishes for next week. Totally awesome. ~ Susanna Carlisi

  • I did the cooking from my weekly menu tonight. The white meat lasagna was a big hit . It was the first one I ever made. The Asparagus was so easy and yummy. The fridge is stocked and I'm ready to heat and eat this week. Thank you x ~ Tracey Jo Whitney
