About the Authors

Janet and Greta Podleski have been profiled in People, interviewed on the "Today Show," and sold themselves into bestselling heaven on QVC. Their success story is the stuff of legend. The Podleski sisters put everything into their first cookbook—literally. They quit their jobs, sold their car, and Janet even parted with her wedding dress at a yard sale (she did keep her husband). Still short on funds and needing expert advice, they approached Dave Chilton (author of the 2-million-copy bestseller The Wealthy Barber and popular PBS-TV personality). He was so taken by the sisters' infectious enthusiasm—and Greta's lowfat cheesecake—that he offered to invest in the project. The rest is history!

The zaniest, most reader-friendly cookbook you're likely to encounter. It's humorous, informative, motivational, and full of energy—just like its authors.
