“The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Easy Freezer Meals” by Cheri Sicard
Easy Freezer Meals by Cheri Sicard is chocked full of time saving cooking ideas and I am totally sold on the idea! What could be better than coming home at the end of a long day and being able to pull a frozen entree out of the freezer and heat it up while you toss a salad! This cookbook is full of delicious recipes such as:
Southwest Tortilla Soup — this is a fiesta of intense flavors
Barbecue-Style Pulled Pork — this stovetop version satisfies your craving for barbecue without all of the work
Crunchy Oven Baked Pork Chops — these have a delicious crunchy herb coating that seals in the moisture
“The Works” Lasagna — absolute ultimate comfort food
Mushroom Risotto — creamy rice and earthy mushrooms and sharp Parmesan cheese – yummy!!
This book would be a great holiday gift for any busy cook on your list! Here are some of the highlights from the cover of the book:
The inside scoop on what foods freeze well and what food don’t…..
….Time and money-saving tips for buying in bulk, big-batch cooking ( which I have done for years) ….
…..Nearly 130 recipes, from mouthwatering breakfasts through delicious desserts— all easy from the freezer!
And speaking of the recipes, the author says that writing this book was like taking a journey down memory lane. Most of the recipes in the book have been recipes she has cooked for many years — for family dinners, barbecues and holidays. I LOVE cookbooks that are full of tried and true recipes!
