Seriously Good Freezer Meals: 150 Easy Recipes to Save Your Time, Money and Sanity
Who has time to cook these days? People are so busy. If there were a way to have fresh, healthy meals every day, wouldn’t that be great? Karrie Truman, food blogger, mother, and very busy person has a cookbook that can help in this regard. First she dismisses some of the myths about freezer meals, then has a list of 10 tips to get started, followed by the essentials needed to do this well, and other topics such as blanching, how long things last, how to organize the meals, a pantry list, etc. But, of course, the recipes are the heart of the book. Arranged in eleven sections, they cover breakfast, appetizers and snacks, soups, stews and chilis, poultry, pork, beef, seafood, meatless mains, side dishes, desserts, and bases and sauces. Each recipe has a paragraph about its origin or when it might be perfect to serve. The usual ingredient list and well-written instructions are followed by a bulk batch guide, which easily allows scaling the recipe for anywhere from 8 to 40 servings. Each has a mouth-watering full-color close-up photo, and they all look good. Don’t miss the Cashew Basil Chicken or the Venezuelan Steak. Yum!
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
