Don't Freeze Up at Meal Time -- Reach Into the Freezer Instead Let's admit it: we all want to save time and money while still putting healthy and tasty homemade food on the table. But how? Karrie Truman, creator of the much-beloved blog Happy Money Saver, is going to let you in on a secret: the answer is freezer meals. When she was an exhausted young mom, Karrie found herself serving processed or fast food at the end of a busy day even though she knew it wasn't what she wanted her family to be eating. Then she discovered freezer meals. Immediately, she had home-cooked, easy and delicious food at her fingertips and more time to spend with loved ones. In Seriously Good Freezer Meals, Karrie shares 150 recipes photos that will change the way you think about freezer cooking. You won't find your mother or grandmother's freezer meals here (except lasagna, of course).
Her recipes include Morning Energy Bars, Empanada Hand Pies, Coconut Cashew Basil Curry Soup, Smoky Grilled Louisiana Turkey Legs, and Layered Chocolate Mousse Cake with tons of vegetarian, gluten-free and vegan options, too. Plus, she adds a bulk-batch chart for ease in making large quantities of each freezer-meal recipe. Karrie gives you all the tools you need to become a freezer-meal genius: information on shopping, cooking, freezing, thawing and everything in between. The book includes beginner, intermediate and advanced meal plan programs to guide you in cooking 7 to 50 meals in a day. You read that right: 50 meals in a day. No more excuses: it's time to start cooking delicious meals that will have you feeling anything but left out in the cold!

Review Quotes
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.

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.

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
eakfast, 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!

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
oad variety of tastes and flavors--Mongolian beef, mascarpone key lime mini pies--and the accompanying cooking instructions are easy to follow.
