Dinner Trade, Dinner Swap, Dinner Group

It doesn't matter what you call your Dinner Trade. For me, I call it a life changer. It has saved me money, time, and weight gain from eating so much fast food. I'm loving the family time we're getting by sitting down to have dinner each night. My friendship with my neighbors has grown. My kids are experiencing a variety of new foods and recipes, and I can rest assured they're not going to be limited to chicken dinos and hot dogs the rest of their life. Once you start a Dinner Swap Dinner Group, you'll wonder why you didn't start it before.


This site is a work in progress. You can learn more about Dinner Groups by reading the Startup Guide. New recipes will be added each week as well as new tips and experiences from being part of a Dinner Group. You can view my group's meal calendar with links to each recipe. Click the "Print this post" option on the recipes and try them out. Then come back to the site and leave your comment and rating.
