I bought this book because I've usually found her books good and used them frequently. This was a real disappointment. If you want to save money on food, get a food saver and some Souper saver silicon forms. I use them all the time. Every time I make a dish I let it cool down overnight, then put it into Souper Saver forms and freeze individual portions. Once frozen I take them out and use the Food Saver to vacuum pack to freeze them. They last for a good long time and I never waste leftovers.
I also buy in bulk with chicken breasts and meats and sea food and vacuum pack them in recipe portions and freeze them untilI'm ready to cook with them.
And that is a much better and simpler way to prep healthy make ahead meals and freezer recipes.
Most Skinny Taste books are worth the money. This wasn't. Alas.
