More About the Author

Over twenty years ago, we bucked the tide of late-20th Century American life. Our family of five became a one income family in a two income world. We set out on a journey toward frugal living and simplicity that quickly became an education in itself -- and a rewarding, joy-filled lifestyle.

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 bought this book at the same time I purchased Don't Panic, Dinner is in the Freezer-- I like the mini-sessions that the author provides to make beginning this method of meal preparation more manageable and less overwhelming. I made about 8-9 recipes from this book, and may not make them a second time. While nothing was terrible, it was also not an enjoyable eating experience like cooking that day would be--and the point of this book is to have a home cooked type meal in the freezer. The food felt like leftovers, and sometimes the consistency did not come out right. I have preferred the recipes in the Don't Panic book to the recipes in this book, perhaps because many of those recipes do not expect the food to be fully cooked before it is frozen.

For anyone who is learning how to do assembly cooking, freezer cooking or cook for a day, eat for a month; this book is an easy reference guide to get you started. The recipes are basic and easy to prepare. They are also light and healthy.

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.

The recipes I have tried have been very disappointing. The meals we prepared were cooked ahead of time and then frozen as directed. Once they were thawed and cooked they were a sloppy mess and to make things worse they were not flavorful. I love the idea of a light freezer cooking book, but, the recipes in the book were disappointing. I much prefer Fix, Freeze and Feast and Don't Panic - Dinner's in the Freezer.

This a very interesting book and the author has obviously done a lot of research and cooking to put it together. It is a very good concept of cooking when you have the time and being able to eat good food when you don't have the time. It would be very useful to everyone from working mothers to empty nesters to singles. It does require some initial organization and of course a freezer, but it is true that you can fit a lot of meals in even a small refrigerator type freezer.
