About the Author
More About the Author
Through hard work and determination, our family:
~ paid off outstanding consumer debt and medical bills...
~ radically reduced spending in every area of our lives...
~ and most importantly, lived to tell about it!
During our family's lean times, we learned creative ways to stretch our limited finances while not sacrificing our quality of life. Between the demands on our time and a very limited budget, I discovered the benefits of preparing meals ahead of time to store in the freezer. My family of five regularly sat down for homemade meals -- for less than $300 per month -- without sacrificing nutrition, variety, or flavor.
I share my knowledge of cooking for the freezer in my first book, Frozen Assets: How to Cook for a Day and Eat for a Month (Champion Press, ISBN 1891400614). I've taught freezer-meal techniques to thousands of people through in-person workshops, discussion groups, radio programs, television spots, and a variety of on-line resources.
In my second book, A Simple Choice: A Practical Guide for Saving Your Time, Money and Sanity, I share some of what I've learned firsthand about raising a family and managing a household with limited time and money. And staying sane in the process.
I have several other books on the market including Frugal Living For Dummies (Wiley Publishing, Feb 2003), Frozen Assets Lite & Easy, Mix and Match Recipes: Creative Ideas for Busy Kitchens, and Frozen Assets Readers' Favorites.
I regularly teach classes and workshops through women's groups, churches, conferences, and community education programs on the topics of:
~ living within your means
~ simple living
~ cooking for the freezer
~ general homemaking
~ identifying personal priorities
~ simplifying the holidays
~ easy educational ideas for children
... and more!
I also edit several free email newsletters including Simple Times, one of the longest running consistently published email newsletters online. You can subscribe via my website at: TheSimpleMom.com

My only wish is that this book had more higher-end or gourmet style recipes, not just easy casseroles and "family food."
I would highly recommend this book to anyone trying to learn how to cook for the freezer, especially the novice or moderately experienced cooks.

Good, easy to follow recipes. They do need a little extra seasoningsPublished 4 months ago by Amanda
But I can't eat most of things listed so it didn't really help me very much. I can see how this would help familys where both parents hold full time jobs. Read morePublished on April 9, 2013 by Amazon Customer
Good book to bring bulk cooking in a managable way to the home kitchen. I particularly like the "minisessions" that allow me to prepare multiple meals in smaller chunks of time... Read morePublished on March 14, 2013 by Cynthia L Greenacre
