After Curtis' visit, Matt and Melissa cut their weekly food bill from $400 to $59.33. "It's very embarrassing, actually. We've always known we are spending exorbitant amounts of money on takeout," Melissa says. "But when you have no skills and nobody will eat what you make, you don't have any choices."
Before her cooking lessons, Matt says his wife's food wasn't very good. But now things have changed. "The stuff that we made from Curtis was very good," he says. "I told him he gave [us] a set of recipes for seven days. We'll call him on Day 8."
