Fix, Freeze, Feast Cookbook Review


Title: Fix, Freeze, Feast, 2nd Edition: The Delicious, Money-Saving Way to Feed Your Family; Stock Your Freezer with Ready-to-Cook Meals; 150 Recipes

Cookbooks containing freezer recipes are available by the hundreds, and most have a recipe or two that is worth making. However, Fix, Freeze, Feast, 2nd Edition: The Delicious, Money-Saving Way to Feed Your Family; Stock Your Freezer with Ready-to-Cook Meals; 150 Recipes, has dozens of great recipes for busy modern cooks that are not only appealing, but simple to make. It’s no wonder that the first edition of this excellent cookbook is a bestseller and this 2nd edition will most likely be another bestseller.

One of the biggest differences in cookbooks where you prepare a large amount of something, freeze it, and cook it when convenient, and this cookbook is the fact that the recipes are for dishes that people actually want to make and they will be appealing to couples, families with children, and guests. There is a variety of flavors in these dishes – Thai, Mediterranean, Caribbean, Italian, Mexican, Chinese to name a few, and the advance prep is very simple so it is suitable for beginning cooks as well as those with a little more experience.

Many of the recipes focus on saving money, which is helpful for young families and those on fixed incomes. By following the recipes and taking the authors’ advice, it is possible to avoid waste and still serve mouthwatering meals.

Some favorites include Sesame Soy Sirloin (there are several dishes where marinades are poured over fresh meats and frozen, allowing the marinade to seep into the meats as they thaw), a flavorful and budget-wise Pork Loin Ragout, and Pepper Jelly Pork Chops. There are also side dishes and several big-batch cookie recipes where the dough can be frozen and ready for last minute baking. The Bourbon Marinated Salmon is fabulous, as is the Swimming Rama (an easy Thai chicken coconut curry) and Mariachi Chicken Rolls.

The only drawback to this book is the fact that even though there are some nice photographs, not all of the dishes are pictured. The book is well-organized and the recipes are easy to follow. This is one book that will be used over and over. It also makes a great gift for friends and family who struggle with trying to get dinner on the table after long days at work. Highly recommended.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
