Become a Once A Month Meals Test Kitchen!
Want to be a part of the OAMM process and help us create better menus? Sign up today!
We’re putting out a call out to ALL readers to find out if you are interested in being a Once A Month Meals Test Kitchen. If you are you will need to be able to do the following:
- Be able to keep the menu TOP SECRET until the 1st of the month when it is revealed.
- Be able to cook the menu between the 1st and the 15th. (For example: If you want to be a tester for the October menu you would need to be able to cook between September 1st and September 15th.)
- You can decide to not make a few of the items if you would like, however, we ask that you stay as close to the menu as possible – you can change ingredients if it is a family preference or allergy. We prefer you not sub in any recipes – we want to get a feel for the doable nature of the menu and any glitches made. (We sometimes gift meals to others that our family won’t eat).
- Take notes as you go on amounts that were wrong or instructions that needed clarifying. Get notes to us within 48 hours of finishing.
- Contact us in an emergency or if you don’t know how to improvise a recipe.
- Acknowledge that there WILL be mistakes.
- Keep it top secret. (Did we mention that already?)
- Feel free to send us any questions before hand.
If you think that you are up for the challenge, we would LOVE to have you on board! We would like everyone who is interested to fill out a brief survey. We will then choose at least two cooks for testing each menu for the next few months. There are also some specialty menus being worked on so you can sign up to be considered as a test kitchen for those as well. (Yes if you cook in a partner pair you can BOTH apply – double your chances!)
The survey allows you to indicate which months you are most interested in testing so if there is a month that is not good for you, you can indicate that and we won’t choose you for that month. We will choose a test pool for each month and will also have a back-up pool in case something happens and a tester has to back out at the last minute.
Test cooks who successfully complete menus for us over the months will receive some membership benefits. If you have a blog you are welcome to write about your experience AFTER the 1st of the month that you have tested.

We hope you will consider the opportunity! And we look forward to working with many of you!
