B12 Stayin Alive

Ever wondered what is the best thing you have EVER cooked? I was informed by one of my sons today that he had picked my best. We calculated that I have made somewhere between 10,000 and 20,000 meals for him. (Yes we were feeling very lazy about calculating exactly. It was something like 3x 365x18, minus meals out.)  So, the winner is SUPER NACHOS…what would you expect?  What I like about making them is that they are as easy as layering things on a jelly roll pan, and you can make two or three pans of it without much extra effort. Now that I know these are the plat prefere’ I’ll make them more often!
Making them with the ground beef or turkey is also a great way to get some vital vitamin B12!

Meet the Cook


I’m Molly, the test cook and research specialist for Orange Tree Lane. The connection between healthy eating and feeling good has always been clear to me. For instance, while others ate take out pizza in college I was making 10 ingredient salads for dinner.  Now my friends bring junk food to my house when they come over, and my three teenagers get teased at school for their unusual lunches, but I press on despite adversity!

"What a great place to help me get tasty, nutritious meals on the table for my family! This is just what I need to help me get organized and realize my goal of nourishing my family and helping each member establish life-long healthy eating habits. Thanks for helping me think through what we will use to fuel our bodies so we don't resort to fast food and non-nutritious snacks simply because I haven't planned ahead."
