Weekly Dinner Plan

Are you constantly strapped for time + need help figuring out what’s for dinner?

Do you make the same old tired dishes over and over and over?

Do you wish that nagging question, “What’s for dinner tonight?” could be answered without stress?

Is the kitchen calling you, but you just don’t know where to get started?

Do you love fresh, seasonal food but not sure what to make?


I know…I’ve been there! And I’ve learned that a little extra help can go a very long way.

I am a super busy mom-writer-home cook-food lover living in New York City, and I’ve made it my mission to make dinnertime super easy so that you have plenty of time for the rest of your life.

Whether you’re:
A harried mom (like me!)
A stay-at-home dad
A busy husband
A single parent
A newlywed
An entrepreneur too busy with work + life
Or simply overwhelmed with planning dinner night after night

I want you to relax. Seriously, dinnertime doesn’t have to be stressful.

When I first gave birth to my daughter in 2008 there were a few moments I thought I’d never make a home cooked meal again. But sitting down to dinner was important to me, so I made it my mission to help others too swamped with their lives to figure out what to make for dinner.

I offer a weekly dinner plan that includes easy and elegant recipes + shopping lists to get you out of stress mode, into cooking mode and into sitting down for dinner mode. I believe in sitting down for dinner, whether you’re along, in a couple or have a large family. It’s the perfect time to regroup.

I’m here to help you save time in the kitchen, so you have time for the rest of your life.

My goals for you are:  to enjoy dinnertime, to say goodbye to the stress that comes with planning meals night after night, to sit down + enjoy dinner (and a glass of wine, if you wish) with your family, friends and other loved ones. While you’re off doing what you do, I am here in my kitchen tasting ingredients, mixing spices, experimenting with flavors…to bring you a meal you’ll love.

I’ve created weekly stress-free menus for you and your family, which will help you get a mouth-watering (and easy to make) dinner on the table. Plus the organized shopping list will help you at the supermarket.

If your cooking philosophy is in line with mine, that is you like cooking with fresh, seasonal ingredients (never canned or processed foods!), and you want easy + elegant recipes then you’ll enjoy The Busy Hedonist Weekly Dinner Plan. And though I have a trove of recipes already, I plan on creating many more new ones in the coming months. The Busy Hedonist is moving to a new condo with a sparkling kitchen! I can’t wait to get back to experimenting with food and ingredients to make elegant dishes for you to enjoy.

Sign up today for a weekly subscription you’ll receive a list of 5 fresh, seasonal dinner recipes (because really, who cooks 7 nights a week?) that will arrive in your inbox with an organized shopping list.

Enjoy juicy tea-roasted chicken, pasta with unique sauces, stews to savor, salmon cooked in parchment, flavorful salads, refreshing sides + and other elegant dishes. Learn a few new techniques, stop fretting about side dishes + discover new spices that can alter a dish. With a few new ideas + flavors, you’ll find you’re more at ease in the kitchen.

It doesn’t cost much to have your own personal kitchen helper!

Soon you’ll be relaxing at the dinner table instead of fretting in the kitchen.

  • save time

What happy—and well-fed—customers are saying:

BriheadshotAs a mom who runs her full time, fully awesome business from home, time is of the essence! And yet, I craved nourishing traditions—getting my hands off a key board and onto fresh seasonal fruits and veggies. I love the alchemy of cooking and have known for a long time that it’s a wonderful way to unwind after a day of work. But I HATED planning menus and I often found myself at the grocery store standing in the middle of an aisle and wondering: what am I doing for dinner this week?” Tracey saved me (and my family is eternally grateful). She creates sumptuous & simple dinner menus for every weeknight. She taught me how to make my own salad dressing and I’ve never gone back. We have feasted on the freshest food available all year and it’s all because of her. I signed up for both her menu and shopping lists which have made dinner planning the sensuous delight it should be. You want to cook, you want to shop smart, you want to be in touch with the seasons? Then you need Tracey—it’s that simple and one of the best investments I’ve made.

I subscribe to and LOVE Tracey’s Busy Hedonist Weekly Dinner plan. Owning a lot of cookbooks and having a decent grasp of nutrition doesn’t always translate to being an effective menu planner. Tracey’s menus have made up twelvefold for my lack of imagination when it comes to my dinner plans. She’s been amazing to work with, fully customizing menus and shopping lists to my preferences. She is inventive, reliable and always open to feedback. I highly recommend enlisting her help to pull you out of any dinner planning rut.

Thank you so much Tracey! Everything I’ve tried has been so good and easy to do. My husband in particular thanks you 🙂

As a culinary nutritionist and entrepreneur, always busy navigating the loops and curls of my life and my business, I found these recipes fresh, wholesome and exactly what I needed for my own nourishment. The best part is not having to think about what I am going to cook and placing the planning (and grocery list) in the capable hands of a fellow foodie who cooks with fresh, seasonal ingredients and has the same culinary curiosity. I’m eager to share this extraordinary service with both my clients and my friends. Their lives will be so much richer with the meal planning covered. And who doesn’t need a little self-indulgence?

I have queried her to create menus for traditional eastern dishes, where exotic spices are abundant to traditional thankgiving dinners with a twist, to simple menus I can use everyday! Tracey’s experience with food is remarkable and she has the unique gift of empowering everyone to create the most sophisticated meals at home, bringing the best of of New York all over the world!
