Top customer reviews
These are not recipes adapted specifically for the freezer, they are compiled from various other authors and adapted to this book. Not necessarily a bad idea, but it was in this case.
The book is also sprinkled with recipes that can't be frozen! They have fun comments like this one for Salad Nicoise: "Freezer Tip: It would be great if you could freeze a salad and have it ready to go at a moment's notice. Unfortunately..."
The real problem with this book is that it gave me no insight. If you happen to like things like "Hawaiiwan Tuna Wraps" (with cream cheese, pineapple, and sunflower seeds) or very basic recipes like "lazy lasagna" that isn't really lasagna, you might like it. I was hoping for some insight about how to really adapt the freezer with my own recipes. While the book does offer a list of foods that don't freeze well and tips on freezing individual ingredients (which is why I won't just throw it away), the mission was not accomplished.
