Make and Freeze Recipes: Great Foods You Can Cook, Freeze, and Use Quickly and Easily (Food Matters) [Kindle Edition] Carolyn Stone (Author), Mara Michaels (Author)
Everyone is crunched for time these days, and on a tight budget as well. When we are always so short of time and money, how can we ever feed our families well?
Convenience foods and takeaway all cost far more than cooking at home, and are certainly not as healthy as well. So what is a responsible parent supposed to do?
Look to your freezer for help. In this guide, you will discover 32 recipes that can be made ahead, frozen, and thawed in minutes in the oven or microwave, so you can put a piping hot meal in front of the whole family for pennies on the dollar compared with the cost of eating out, delivery, or TV dinners.
You will know exactly what you are feeding your family as you create these mouthwatering recipes from scratch, offering them breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert options that they can eat even on the run.
Use the recipes on their own, or in combination to create a complete meal, from appetizer to main course, side dishes and dessert. Be able to serve anyone an impressive hot meal at any time, even if guests arrive unexpectedly.
Stock your freezer before the holidays or school vacations, and never have to worry about what to feed the children when they are home, or what they will be eating behind your back. Fast food from a chain store will be a thing of the past with these zippy dishes you can heat and eat any time.
From Homemade Chili to hearty Chicken Pot Pies, Bean Burritos to Bon Bons, you will find a range of recipes for every occasion and every eating lifestyle, including vegetarian options.
If you are looking to feed your family for less and spend more quality time with them, use this guide to get started on the road to more nutritious eating without having to slave in the kitchen for hours every night.
From soup to jams, your own pie crusts to casseroles, these make-ahead and freeze meals are sure to please and soon become family favorites. In fact, why not double the batches, eat one tonight, and parcel up and freeze the rest for future meals? The smiles on your family's faces and your healthier bank balance will make you glad you did.
