Not Your Mother’s Make-Ahead and Freeze Cookbook

My first cookbook, Not Your Mother’s Make-Ahead and Freeze Cookbook is designed to be your one-stop shop for all things freezer cooking. Loaded with over 200 freezer-friendly recipes, it also provides the know-how to make bulk cooking successful for any family, any household, any lifestyle.

I’ve made freezer cooking a part of my family’s good eating for the last sixteen years. It’s been a great method to help us eat well and stay on budget.

Plus it keeps me sane in a busy household with six kids!

For years I found myself frustrated with the freezer cookbooks I flipped through. They often featured a lot of processed mixes and canned foods and sauces. Canned cream of something soup, anyone? No thanks. I want to feed my family real food, not a mess of chemicals.

In Not Your Mother’s Make-Ahead and Freeze Cookbook, I’ve made every effort to reduce commercially-processed foods wherever possible.  I love that bulk cooking can make it so much easier to eat real food!

And contrary to what you might have previously thought, homemade frozen dinners can be absolutely delicious. My taste testers are still raving about and requesting Mahi Mahi with Almond-Lime Butter, Roasted Vegetable Quiche and Caramel Lime Bars.

Here’s what you’ll find in this book:

  • Over 200 recipes to make ahead and freeze
  • General instruction in freezer cooking
  • A methodology to adapt your own recipes for freezing
  • Gluten-free and vegetarian options
  • Tips for bulk cooking with kids, with friends, and on your own
  • Fresh inspiration and 21st century flavors and ingredients
