A pragmatic cookbook full of great recipes and tips on preserving
them to maximize the return on time invested in cooking. With
instructions on prep, stocking up on supplies, organizing freezer
space, and cooking in large quantities, Truman's advice is
straightforward and practical. The book is full of surprises.
Readers may be surprised that a cinnamon French toast bake is
freezer-friendly, that an artichoke dip can be made far ahead of
time and cooked from frozen, or that a meal with complex flavors,
such as hazelnut chicken wild rice soup, will preserve perfectly in
the freezer. Truman's recipes encompass a broad variety of tastes
and flavors--Mongolian beef, mascarpone key lime mini pies--and the
accompanying cooking instructions are easy to follow.--Publishers
Karrie Truman knocked it out of the park when she wrote this freezer meals cookbook. The cool thing about this book is that the recipes are flexible. Each of the 150 recipes include a chart that shows you how to scale it into LARGE quantities (if that's your thing), or how you can just make a single batch to eat right away.--The Prairie Homestead
Seriously Good Freezer Meals is a super great book, if you work a lot because you can make the meals ahead of time, and freeze them for later. And lest you think these are just ho-hum basic meals, you're in for a pleasant surprise! Within the beautifully photographed full-color pages, you'll discover recipes for every meal of the day.--This Frugal Family
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. 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!--San Francisco Book Review Magazine
