New York Times Best Selling Author, Leanne Ely, began her menu planning service in 2001 to help families get back to the dinner table. Within just a few years, Readers Digest declared a new industry had been born — the menu planning industry — and Leanne was dubbed the “mother” of menu planning.
Leanne learned the hard way what it takes to run your own business and make it successful. A single mom raising two kids‚ her experience comes from the trenches—carpool, busy kids, dogs and putting dinner on the table night after night.
Her mission: bringing families back to the dinner table one meal at a time.
Woman’s Day magazine calls Leanne the expert on family cooking. Leanne has appeared on QVC, HGTV’s Simple Solutions and ABC Family’s Living the Life. She has taught cooking classes for Bloomingdale’s all over the country. Leanne’s radio show, Saving Dinner with the Dinner Diva, is one of the top shows on Blog Talk Radio. Her syndicated weekly newspaper column, The Dinner Diva, goes out to over 250 newspapers in the U.S. and Canada.
