Now that the kids are back to school and the crazy schedules start up again, maybe you’re struggling with the idea of getting dinner on the table each night… then you might want to check out 'Dream Dinners.'

It’s a company started in 2002 in Washington State by two working moms. They were the first to roll out this timesaving concept on a national scale, with local franchises. The idea, using fresh ingredients in fix-and-freeze meals. You pick what meals you’d like to make from their monthly menu and sign up for a session at one of their locations. It takes only about an hour to assemble as many meals as you’d like (and that can fit in your freezer.)  Each meal comes with step-by-step instructions both to make it in the store and prepare it at home.

We visited the Livonia location to see what it’s all about. Check out the video player to learn more... and to meet the mom who’s helping make life a little easier for other busy moms.
