I picked this book up at a used book sale. It was next to nothing. As I was searching other cookbooks on , I took a look at the reviews for this particular book. Most of these reviews read like they were written by the same person. I took a closer look..... Although these reviews appear to be by different people, they also reviewed the same items in their profiles. should not allow these obvious FAKE reviews. It dilutes the reviews for anything on this website. Here's my review of this book: it's a waste of time. My search for the best, health centered, easy to follow instructions, meal pictures along with shopping lists freezer cookbook continues. Don't trust these reviews (or any others now for that matter).
Soooo this has some good recipes in it. Not really what I was looking for though. I wanted recipes for making a butt load of meals and freezing them so I can thaw and use through out the week if I am too busy too cook (which is most nights...nursing school...) this isn't that type of cook book. If that is what you are looking for I would honestly just google search for freezer crock pot meals and there are some good websites that tell you what ingredients you need to make like 20 bags of meals :) This is more like one meal at a time, many ingredients, many ingredients are not just random pantry items either (like you'll need to shop).. The meals sound good but are maybe more involved than what I was looking for.
I was really excited to receive this book as a gift and start cooking dinners more efficiently ahead of time. Unfortunately, this book has been a pretty big disappointment (by no fault of the gift giver!). First, there are 100s of recipes, which is great, and a really detailed table of contents with page numbers and different sections. But then there are absolutely no page numbers written on the individual pages! What am I supposed to do? Count 157 recipes from the beginning to find the page I want? Also, a lot of the quantities are outrageous. One recipe I found and was interested to try called for 9lbs of ground beef and 18c of cheddar cheese. How are you ever supposed to fit that in a freezer bag? Much less, how do those proportions make sense. I can't imagine that recipe tasting good. Sad that it's a letdown but hoping to get an idea or two from the book that I can tweak.
These are just regular recipes that you throw in the freezer like any ol' left-overs, not recipes designed around freezing. I might try a few, but many of these really are just thrown together with cream of XYZ soup. Not all that appealing. And, the editing / writing is questionable. Take a look at the two images I'm posting. Identical ingredients in different order is NOT a different recipe! Not to mention that the combination of ingredients is very unappetizing! Blech!
The author did a great job of compiling these recipes. They are concise and easy to read-usually on one page. She sorted all the recipes into categories which made it really easy to find them, too.Some of the recipes only have microwave instructions, and others only oven instructions. It would have been nice to include some form of conversion table for all three-, microwaves, ovens, and toaster ovens, too.If I had to pick one, my favorite section is the Soups and Stew Recipes.
I am really enjoying this make ahead meal cookbook on my kindle fire.Very easy to follow recipes. Helpful tips.I'm very interested in trying more of the make ahead breakfast recipes.The Egg Muffin sandwiches look very easy to make and to reheat. This will save my family money on take out breakfast meals.I like that it tells you how long to reheat and the best way to do so. This is part of the reason why I don't do more make ahead recipes. Because I'm unsure how long to reheat.There are breakfast, soups and stews, veggies, and meat recipes. Excellent ideas.Can't wait to put this ebook to use. I do miss the photos and nutritional info for the recipes.I received this book complimentary in exchange for my honest review.
"Make Ahead Meals" by Julianna Sweeney features 365 days of quick and easy (make ahead of time) meals. I thought the conveinent "freezer food guide" at the start of the book was very informative, as it showed how long you can safely store different types of food in the freezer. I do wish the book included pictures of each completed dish but otherwise a great selection of recipes. The book includes recipes for breakfast items, soups & stews, as well as, vegetable, chicken, beef and pork selections.
This is an o.k. cookbook. Haven't made any of the recipes. Many of the recipes have been published either in print or online elsewhere. Would be good when time is an issue and your looking for quick prep. Would not discourage anyone from adding to their collection.
