I looked into freezer meals but almost everything that I've come across was a crock-pot recipes that looked like the same meal over and over again. Cut veggies, add meat and add a cream of this or that. We like to try different foods and after seeing a sea of recipes that require crockpot and creams of ... almost made me give up hope that I can save time with freezer meals. That is until I came across a review of this book on Pintrest. You will find here teriyaki recipes, an AMAZING chicken pot pie as well picante turkey pie to name a few. The recipes are super easy and quick to make and the authors give you measurements for single and multiple servings so your favorite recipes you can make few servings of at the same time. I cannot express how much I LOVE THIS BOOK and how happy I am that I came across it.
They really give wonderful tips on how to fill your freezer with wonderful easy meals!
The best part about this is they do all the calculations if you want to 3x, 6x, or 9x the recipes. This has been more than helpful when I want to make extra to freeze.
Love the peanut butter bars, broccoli cheese soup, hawaiian chicken, orange teriyaki chicken, teriyaki chicken or steak, manicotti, breakfast burritos and farmers casserole.
Their second book is awesome, too. My husband's VERY favorite recipe is in it - Peanut butter chicken. He can literally eat it every week. When my littles are a bit older and I have an hour to chop up 18 chicken breasts I will be making the 9x recipe so I can have it in the freezer to have it weekly for a month or two at a time.
The recipes are all pretty good. The reason I didn't go with 5 stars, is that the recipes are all pretty basic, and some are bland. The authors may have done this on purpose to make the meals more universal. It is easy enough to figure out how to spice things up, or add some more unique ingredients, but for a beginner, that may be a bit more of a challenge.
I like that they have added more than just meat and potato meals. There are recipes for desserts, breads, brunches, a number of things you wouldn't normally think of freezing, but would come in handy to have ready ahead of time.
Overall, this is a great book for anyone interested in freezer meals.
