Imagine getting an email from a cooking author that helped change the way you cook and being asked if you’d like to preview their latest edition. Yes, I was indeed honored, and almost speechless when I received that email from Nanci Slagle of 30 Day Gourmet.
You see, about four years ago when I found out I was pregnant with my son, I decided I needed to prepare for this life-changing event by finding as many shortcuts to life’s daily tasks as I could. I wanted to learn more about freezer cooking so I could have meals easily ready to go at suppertime. So I immediately went searching the web and discovered 30 Day Gourmet’s last book. It was exactly what I was looking for. It wasn’t just recipes, but it was step-by-step on how to freezer cook–the do’s and don’ts and planning worksheets. I loved it so much that it changed the way I cook now. I freeze meals all the time for quick dinners.
My only negative I could have said about the book was that I couldn’t lay it flat to keep it open while I was working on the recipes. They have completely fixed that with the latest book called 30 Day Gourmet’s BIG Book of Freezer Cooking. It’s a ring-bound book (that lays flat!) that has a lot of their past recipes, new recipes and just like with the last copy, you get a user/password so you can have access to all their online recipes, too. Some of my favorites that I’ve cooked have come from their website, too.
Overall, there are 150 recipes in the book–each of them comes with nutritional analysis, color photos, step-by-step instructions and freezing info.
And if you ever do check this one out, I highly recommend the Taco Chili! I’ve cooked this many a time for family and friends and they barely believe me when I tell them it was frozen just a few hours before. It’s a seasonal tradition for us to have on Sundays when the Bears games are on now.
