This cookbook has recipes that are more complex and somewhat different from what I was expecting when I downloaded it but it looks like there are some good ideas. I am guessing it was written by someone from the UK because of some of the terms that are used.
The Table of Contents reads (for the recipe part):
Monday's suggestions
Carrot and coriander soup
Meatballs in a cream or tomato sauce
Moussaka
Fruit Lattice

Tuesday's suggestions:
Spicy parsnip soup
Vegetable lasagne
Sweet potato and peanut stew
Hand-made ice cream

Wednesday's suggestions:
Sausage and bean soup
Cottage Pie
Meatloaf
Banana bread

Thursday's suggestions:
Quiche Lorraine
chicken, Leek and Mushroom Pie
Goulash
Apple Pudding

Friday's Suggestions:
Lentil and Ham soup
Friday night Chilli (that is how it is spelled in the book)
Lamb Tagine
Raspberry Tart

Saturday's Suggestions:
Vegetable curry in a hurry
Chicken casserole
bolognese for Pasta
Victoria Sponge

Sunday's suggestions:
Chicken broth
Calzone
Fruit Crumble

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!

I was so excited to get this book for Kindle (for free!) because I had been wanting to try Freezer Cooking for awhile and here was a book that promoted itself as Fabulous and promised healthy meals every day of the week. After a brief introduction to freezer meals it went into recipes for every day of the week, but the recipes were for about 4 servings and the book tells you to make meals in bulk and then freeze, but it would be helpful if the recipes were for larger servings then. Most of the recipes are not something most families would make, especially with children. Some might, but not most. The instruction on how to freeze the foods is lacking, badly. Other than telling you to get a bigger freezer, date and rotate the foods and to buy some baggies, containers and plastic wrap you get to figure out the rest on your own. Nothing about preventing freezer burn, no tips or suggestions on quantities to freeze for a meal, etc. I was disappointed in this to say the least. You can find better info on the net for free.

Although many of the recipes look interesting, I'm not sure why these recipes are any more suitable for the freezer than any others. Many of the recipes are for very small batches which seems in conflict with the point of the book. The recipe for Carrot and Coriander Soup serves two! Many recipes have no information at all about freezing them.

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!

I've been doing freezer cooking for a while and I'm always looking for new, tested freezer recipes to try for our family. There were some interesting recipes in this short book, but in my opinion, there weren't many that really lent themselves to freezer cooking. If you want to make some of these for the freezer, you will be on your own for figuring out how to increase the quantities (most recipes serve 4), how to best freeze the results, and how to reheat or cook from frozen. Most recipes have many ingredients and steps. The recipes are not grouped in any kind of time-saving groups where you are saving time and money by cooking all the chicken recipes, chopping all the onions at once, etc.

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.
