This is one of the best cookbooks I have ever bought. Recipes are delicious, instructions are clear and the choice between "eat now" and "freeze for later" is very well laid out. Some of the recipes need a slow cooker but, after trying several of the ones that don't, I've just bought a slow cooker as they sound so good. Both my adult sons are buying this book after tasting the last 3 weeks of recipes for family Sunday meal.
I deliberated whether I needed a cook book specifically for freezing foods but this book is brilliant! It has so many useful tips to home freezing and has some very yummy recipes!! The book really covers everything you would need to know - types of storage, defrosting, making multiple batches. 100% recommend!!
Love the lay out, great recipes and ideas/tips for batch cooking frezzer meals. Easy to follow recipes. A few ingredients are USA but easy to substitute with UK opposites or source from world foods section of supermarket or online. All serving and batch amounts worked out for you.
In my last two weeks of maternity leave I found the author's blog and meal prepped like a woman possessed.
It was AMAZING! Not only did I have tasty, healthy and surprisingly "fresh" meals on hand for a month, I had enough portions to feed my visiting mother, who was very confused as she envisioned she'd be making meals for me! Man did I at least (from the outside) look like I had my s#@t together!!!
The meals were so so so delicious and I am certain they helped promote healthy breast feeding and milk production. As a brand new mom, at time when cognitive function is sparse, (pouring my morning coffee into a saucepan instead of a mug?!) I didn't have to think about making meals. BLISS!
Fast forward, I'm back at work with a nearly-two year old and had fallen back into crappy, not to mention expensive, meal "solutions". I went online to re-find the blog and as soon as I discovered there was a cook book I bought that thing faster than millenials order avocado toast.
I've already made a fair few of the recipes including the pulled pork (FYI toddler favourite) and one of the salmon recipies. I have meal planned for the week and cooked for a day. It is so nice and much more cost effective.
I recommend the book, love the author for making this happen, she saved my life and my sanity!
