Seven weeks ago, baby No. 5 joined the Perets family. I quickly remembered that life with a newborn is not always easy. My solution to this is lists, lists, and more lists.
I've always been a fan of menu plans and grocery lists, but I'm having a hard time remembering my own name these days, so I'll take all the help I can get. Kitchen Monki provides that help in the form of a sweet interface that lets you find and share recipes, create a meal plan, and create a shopping list from the ingredients in your recipes or items you add manually.
And if you, like me in my sleep-deprived state, tend to forget the carefully crafted list at home, Kitchen Monki lets you pull it up on your mobile phone right from the store.
It gets massive bonus points since I can access Kitchen Monki via Facebook instead of me having to creating yet another username and password.
