SERIOUSLY GOOD FREEZER MEALS: 150 Easy Recipes to Save Your Time, Money & Sanity - Review

I don't own a lot of cookbooks but do use the ones that I have.  I don't consider myself to be an extraordinaire in the kitchen so I tend to shy away from cookbooks that require a ton of ingredients, a ton of time, or feature foods that I've never heard of.

I was recently given SERIOUSLY GOOD FREEZER MEALS: 150 Easy Recipes to Save Your Time, Money & Sanity for review and I was pleasantly surprised at how many of the recipes I've bookmarked to prepare and serve.  The dishes sound and look so delicious, yet most of them are easy enough for me to make.

Karrie Truman, creator of the blog Happy Money Saver, is the brains behind this cookbook.  Karrie shares 150 recipe photos that will change the way you think about freezer cooking.  Some of her recipes include:

Empanada Hand Pies
Smoky Grilled Louisiana Turkey Legs
Layered Chocolate Mousse Cake
Roasted Candied Sweet Potatoes

Seriously Good Freezer Meals offers several vegetarian and gluten-free recipe options.  Readers are given the tools needed for freezer meals, including information on shopping, cooking, freezing, and thawing.  For each recipe, there's instructions on how to cook and eat it now, or how to freeze and eat it later.  The book includes beginner, intermediate and advanced meal plan programs to guide you in cooking.  A bulk batch guide is available to use if you want to make more than double, triple or more.  

The cookbook itself is sturdy and the pages are durable.  There are pictures for each and every recipe.  Gets me drooling just looking at them!  The one and only complaint I have about this cookbook is that the pages don't tend to lay flat when I'm trying to read a recipe.  I have to put something heavy on the pages to keep the book open to where I want.

I received book for review from Robert Rose.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.   Your opinions and results may differ.
