If you’d like to start doing more freezer cooking (this is a major priority for me this winter), then here’s a great cookbook for you.
The Kindle ebook version of Not Your Mother’s Make-Ahead and Freeze Cookbook (NYM Series) is on sale right now for $4.99, regularly $16.95.
Even if you don’t have a Kindle, you can download FREE applications to read Kindle books on your Mac, PC, iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Phone 7, or Android Phone.
While this cookbook is not kosher, I know that Jessica’s tips and ideas can easily be translated for those of us that are. Here’s a little from the book description:
Fisher lays out lots of easy-to-follow guidelines for diverse families with varying needs and desires, taking into account how long you want to spend in the kitchen—there are 2-hour, 4-hour, and daylong plans—as well as how far out ahead you want to cook for, the size of your household, the size of your freezer, your budget, and even your taste for one-dish meals versus multi-course meals. The emphasis is on facilitating flexibility without sacrificing clarity and ease-of-use.
Fisher’s 200 recipes deliver flavorful and healthy food in abundance. She takes readers beyond mom’s beef-pork-chicken triumvirate, with lots of ideas for lamb, fish, shellfish, and vegetarian main courses. There are homey and family-friendly dishes, like Cheddar Cheese Soup with Zucchini, Broccoli, and Carrots, or Crumb-Topped Cod Fillets; and fancy dishes for company, like Salsa Verde Beef, Red Lentil Dahl, and Hoisin-Glazed Salmon.
While the emphasis is on dinner, there are breakfast and brunch recipes, too, and plenty of ideas for breads, quick breads, and desserts that freeze well. Ample sidebars address such matters as finding good freezer bags and containers, labeling frozen food, whether to invest in a new freezer, and how to thaw safely.
After reading her blog for years, I am so excited to now own her cookbook – and definitely encourage you guys to download it, too.
