Monday, October 10, 2011

WooHoo! What an exciting time here at SparkPeople! Not only did our first cookbook become a best-seller on Amazon.com (we were the #1 cookbook for several days!), but now our own Chef Meg, author of "The SparkPeople Cookbook: Love Your Food, Lose the Weight," is making her national TV debut!

Tune in to the syndicated show "Better TV" tomorrow (Tuesday, Oct. 11) to see Chef Meg talk about the book--and cook up one of our favorite recipes from "The SparkPeople Cookbook": Three-Cheese Macaroni! Yum!
