Kick the fast-food habit! This updated edition of Not Your Mother's Make-Ahead and Freeze Cookbook has even more batch recipes for busy families on a budget.
In today's fast-paced society, fast food can easily take the place of good home cooking. With the help of one of the most underused appliances in most people's kitchen—the freezer—anyone can make and preserve about two weeks' worth of delicious home-cooked meals in a matter of hours!
Jessica Fisher's Not Your Mother's Make-Ahead and Freeze Cookbook Revised and Expanded Edition provides the key to doing so. Fisher serves up more than 250 recipes for delectable breakfasts, lunches, and dinners with the secret weapon of “batch cooking,” which saves both time and money. This cookbook puts a modern spin on the age-old idea of freezing meals for later, and appeals to today's diverse tastes.
You’ll find recipes for not only chicken, beef, and pork, but also fish, shellfish, and vegetarian main courses. Make, freeze, and enjoy later:
- Oven-Baked Beef Taquitos
- Teriyaki Chicken Skewers
- Tarragon-and-Lemon-Rubbed Fish
- Ham and Swiss Potato Gratin
- Baked Manicotti with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Thyme
- Smoky Multi-Bean Vegetarian Chili
- Cinnamon French Toast Dippers
- Lemon-Blueberry Scones
- Spiced Pumpkin Custards
Fisher also details how to go about using the freezer to its full potential, giving information on the best freezer bags, how to thaw food safely after it has been frozen, and how to make a multi-week meal plan for your family.
