Fixing Dinner

Need help fixing dinner? In response to the common contemporary complaint that "we never sit down to dinner as a family!", host and cookbook author Sandi Richard comes to the rescue with this weekly series that answers dinner-time cries for help. Each episode, Richard consults with a different family to show them how they can organize their kitchen, their cooking and their lives so that they can have a family dinner every night of the week.

Host: Sandi Richard

Sandi Richard is considered by many to be North America's leading meal planning expert. She is the author of five best selling meal-planning books in the series Cooking for the Rushed, a company she owns with her husband Ron. Sandi's sixth book, Eating Forward, is named after her system that has changed dinner dynamics and reduced stess for hundreds of thousands of families. Eating Forward launches in late 2010 and is expected to transform the lives of hundreds of thousands more families.

Sandi loves interacting with people and is never at a loss for words when it comes to talking about food, except of course when her mouth is full and all she can manage is a very satisfied 'mmmm.' Sandi speaks to thousands of people across North America about modern day meal planning strategies to get families back to the dinner table to create more balance in their lives.

Sandi researched, wrote and hosted her own award winning Food Network series called Fixing Dinner and has just completed production on the new Food Network show, Let's Do Lunch.
