If any of this seems daunting to the uninitiated, fear not, for the authors take readers step by step through the whole process. Chapter 1, “A Deep Dive into the Cold Chest,” covers the benefits of freezer cooking (they list seven, including eating healthier and jumpstarting one’s social life), the six steps to creating successful freezer meal, and food safety principles. Chapter 2 is entitled, “Throw a Freezer Cooking Party,” and gives clearly delineated instructions on how to pull this deal off. Chapter 3 does the same for “Start a Freezer Club.” By the time the reader has gotten thus far, he or she will be getting itchy fingers, wanting to ring up everyone they know to get this show on the road.
So much for Part 1. Part 2, and the bulk of the book, consists of recipes for the aforementioned freezer meals, with chapters dedicated to specific ingredients or entrees, such as chicken, beef, seafood, and so on. Yes, there is a chapter for breakfast items. Conner and Tiemeyer state that each recipe has been tried in-home and appears in this book only after it has proven itself to be nutritious, delicious, freezable and can be made within 30 minutes. It is evident that much thought has gone into the preparation of said recipes. An introductory paragraph gives some background about the dish and helpful tips regarding preparation. Ingredients and amounts appear in a column on the left hand of the page, while on the right column are step-by-step instructions for cooking the meal, followed by directions for freezing and unthawing same. Full color photography throughout the book illustrates many of the finished products and they had this reviewer wanting to tear out the pages and eat that!
Full disclosure: at the time of this review, none of the recipes were actually tried out, due to time constraints, but several are on the to-do list, in order to satisfy the voracious appetites of a growing family. For those who desire to stretch their food dollars and have more choices at dinnertime, this lovely cookbook is highly recommended for purchase.
Review by Michael F. Bemis
The book includes two parts. Part I: Making Freezer Cooking a Lifestyle. Part II: 75+ Whole Food Freezer Meals. EVERY recipe includes freezer meal instructions. I can't wait to fill my freezer with healthy meals!
So far, my family has tried the Chicken Parmesan Casserole and Chicken Fried Rice with Maple Soy Sauce. Both recipes were delicious, simple and kid-friendly. Next on my list to try: Cinnamon Oatmeal Pancakes and Killer Carnitas.
