Freezer cooking has changed my life.
About a year ago I would have said “Once a month cooking?? Huh?” Like maybe I’ve heard a blogger here or there mention it, but I never really paid much attention to it.
Until, one fateful day, I walked into Barnes and Noble. I stalked the clearance racks as I usually do, and came across a wonderful and amazing book. I came across this little cookbook with no pictures (and usually I hate that in a cookbook). But it had a big $5 sticker on it and it was on clearance for 50% off. I thought I would give it a shot for $2.50!
I know there are many systems out there like Once a Month Mom but the idea of freezer cooking always sounded SO complicated to me! I really had no idea how it was even practical until I picked up this book.
Let me just say, this book is amazing. I can’t sing it’s praises enough. It has different menus throughout the book broken down by type. There is even a gluten free and summer menu plan. Each menu then has a shopping list at the beginning. So I simply grab the book and take it with me to the grocery store. The shopping list is even broken down by type: meat, produce, ect.
Anyway, enough about the book, just go buy it already. Now that I have learned the basics of freezer cooking I can take the amazing recipes from this book, plus our own family favorites and do freezer cooking my way. And it’s easy and saves so much time in the long run.
I also can’t wait to try their original Once-A-Month Cooking recipe book.
But I’m curious. Do you do freezer cooking? If you do, share with us how you do it. If you have tried and don’t like it, tell us why.
