Meal Planning

Guiding home chefs every step of the way — from inspiration to meal planning to grocery shopping.

User-friendly meal plan feature within the Food Network Kitchen app and web experience.

Avid users have been asking for a way to schedule recipes and order groceries – so we listened to their feedback and did just that. In 2020, the premium meal plan feature was launched. Building on the already successful Food Network Kitchen app, I lead the creation of this new feature from concept to launch.

My responsibilities included creating customer personas, user journeys, prototypes, and establishing the UI and visuals. Throughout this process, I presented progress and final work to product and engineering teams. Since the launch in 2020, I have created a number of enhancements, including adding notes and adding saved recipes to your meal plan and designed the accompanying web feature launched in 2021.

"Great application for food ideas and recipes. Helps our family meal plan and prepare for the week." 

"I've tried a lot of free and free-to-try meal planning/cooking applications. This is the only one I've actually paid for because I thought it was worth it. The software is stable, easy to use, it has some great recipes, and I love the find-by-ingredient function." 

"Like everyone else, can’t wait for things to get back to normal. The reason I see most of it on demand is because of timing, but there’s not a day I’m not on it. I have made soooooo many recipes and love the new things like the shopping list and meal planner. Thank you."
