Sisters Janet & Greta Podleski are the authors of three #1 bestselling cookbooks: Looneyspoons, Crazy Plates and Eat, Shrink & Be Merry! The fun-filled books are best known for their unique combination of great-tasting, healthy recipes, useful nutrition tips and corny humor, though not even the books’ biggest fans found the jokes as funny as Janet & Greta did themselves.
Over the years, the dynamic duo has somehow found time to host a popular cooking show on Food Network Canada, develop a line of healthy prepared foods, produce monthly columns for Reader’s Digest and Taste of Home magazines and create a series of “grEATing cards” for Hallmark. Clearly, the sisters’ personal lives border on pathetic.
Their inspirational, self-publishing success story and mouthwatering recipes have been featured in countless newspapers and magazines, and on hundreds of North American radio and TV broadcasts, including The Today Show, CNN, NPR and QVC. Much to their dismay, Janet & Greta never managed to get on Oprah, but they once camped for hours outside her Chicago apartment building, hoping for a chance to meet her. Hey, it was worth a try! (Darn security officers!)
Janet & Greta are the youngest siblings in a family of six girls. They live in Ontario, Canada, with their beloved pooches, Lacey Lou and Rico.
