I haven't made anything yet so the jury is out on how the recipes work but in looking through them they look like they should work. The one thing I noticed is that many of the recipe ingredient lists are rather long so these are not recipes you can make quickly.
For instance the Moussaka recipe is:
1 large potato, peeled and sliced
1 T corn flour (I think this means corn meal?)
2 T olive oil
2 C milk
2 diced onions
1 lb ground lamb or beef
1 chopped aubergine (thankfully my kindle translates that this means an eggplant!Read more ›
The cookbook would have benefited from a bit of editing, but it wasn't so bad as to put me off the cookbook. I got a chuckle from the suggestion to bake and then freeze potatoes, then heat them in the microwave. I'm going to take up all that space in my freezer with frozen baked potatoes? Why wouldn't I just bake the potatoes in the microwave in the first place? Then again, I have made up a large batch of Twice-Baked Potatoes and individually frozen them before.
The variety of recipes is very nice, with a wide variety of cuisines represented. Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew will definitely be on the menu this week. Honestly, I didn't come across any recipe that made me think 'ewwww!'
The recipes begin on their own page, and many of the recipes have a photograph accompanying them.
Hint: If you are going to prepare individual or family-sized servings of dishes in disposable aluminum foil pans, ALWAYS put them on top of a sheet of foil on a baking sheet when you put them in the oven. You would be surprised at how easy it is for the foil to be punctured in the freezer. I learned this the hard way. I baked a meatloaf that I had had in the freezer for a month and didn't realize there was a small hole in the bottom of the pan until my oven started smoking. What a mess!
There are 4 recipes for each day of the week, but each recipe serves about 4. The author is suggesting you cook all 4 recipes on one day of the week, but there are no amounts or preparation adjustments included for doubling, etc. Also, the day's recipes aren't related in any way, so they aren't grouped together to save time and ingredients.
There is a brief (very brief) introduction to freezer cooking at the beginning of the book, but if you haven't done freezer cooking before, this will not tell you how to do it. I wasn't expecting a "how to" book, but I did expect specific freezer instructions for each recipe. I also totally expected instructions for how to reheat/cook the frozen meal. There are no instructions for that, so you won't know if you should defrost first or microwave or put it directly in the oven...or at what temperature or time. I buy someone else's freezer recipes because I like that someone else has already tested this and will save me the trial and error. I really don't think these have been tested.Read more ›
