1. Almost everything is very heavy-- high fat, heavy on the meat (lots of sausage, ground beef, ground pork, etc). I'm not a health-food freak by any means, but I don't cook with heavy cream, half and half, or Velveeta cheese, and I found those ingredients in many of the recipes that caught my attention. I guess fatty foods freeze better. Bummer.
2. Too many very specific pre-packaged convenience foods in the recipes. Besides the aforementioned Velveeta, there were also rather odd-ball ingredients that I don't keep around. Here are a couple of specific items called for in various recipes: 1 package (6.4 oz) lasagna dinner mix (what is that? like Hamburger Helper?? Or is it a frozen thing?); 2 packages (8.8 oz each) ready-to-serve long grain and wild rice (I've never seen this-- is it in the frozen food section? Or is it like those tuna pouches in the regular isle?); 2 packages (7.2 oz each) rice pilaf (is this a mix? is it seasoned? not seasoned? is it dry? is it already cooked?); and then every condensed soup known to man.Read more ›
One of the reasons I like freezer meals is that I can avoid pre-made foods that have tons of sodium etc... This cookbook has TONS of 'cream of' ingredients, pre-made rice, etc. The desserts involve a lot of jello, puddings, cool whip.... Not that I don't like a cool whip pie occasionally, but that's NOT why I'd make something in advance.
I am giving this 2 stars because the recipes just might turn out ok, but if you're cooking ahead to avoid pre-packaged foods this is NOT the cookbook for you. I should have listened to the previous reviewer!

Great recipes! I love the idea of making a dinner once and freezing portions for another night. This is a great addition to the cook books I already have.Published 17 months ago by Nana Fran
