Overview

Do you love the idea of bulk cooking but are scared to death to tackle it by yourself? Try making it a team effort! You’ll find the challenges divided and the rewards multiplied. will tell you how to get started cooking as a team. It gives practical tips to the leader of the group and features recipes multiplied by larger numbers so you don’t have to do the math yourself.

With Co-op Cuisine, each participant cooks just one recipe (or try more as you get the hang of it) but multiplies the ingredients by the number of people participating, for example, ten. Then, when everyone gets together on Swap Day to trade meals, each person ends up with ten different meals even though he/she only had to spend the energy to shop and cook one recipe (multiplied by ten). Participants cook their recipe in their own kitchen during the agreed upon time allotment. This give everyone the flexibility to work around their family’s busy schedule.

The book includes 44 pages and 25 recipes suitable for co-op cooking that are simpler to multiply by large quantities. It highlights Easy and Super Easy recipes that are good for the beginners in the group.

Download Co-op Cuisine today. You will never go back to bulk cooking by yourself. And you’ll find new friends that share dinner with you every night.

Meet the Author

Jan Limiero is a mother of three who hates to cook but who has figured out the answer to the hardest question on earth - "What's for Dinner?"

Nanci Slagle is the President of 30 Day Gourmet, Inc. She is a graduate of Cedarville University and works as a high school English teacher and Drama Director.

Meet Nanci: When I discovered freezer cooking in 1993, I had been married for 14 years and was the mother of four children under 8. I was also a "crisis cook" who didn’t think about dinner until the last possible moment. Sound familiar? In my early days of freezer cooking, I tackled the then-daunting task with a good friend.In the beginning, we got together once a month and assembled 25-30 entrées for each of us. Later, we began cooking every three months. Our 2-day cooking marathons netted us each about 75 freezer meals. As our family sizes, schedules and tastes changed, we found that the "system" we had developed was adaptable enough to "flex" along with us.Fast forward to 2012. I now work full-time and the kids are (mostly) gone. I no longer have long cooking marathons but instead do mini-sessions every 3-4 weeks. Freezer cooking is still the best way I have found to feed my family great home-cooked food without having to stress over the "dinner chore".

Carol Santee is the author of 30 Day Gourmet's Freezer Lunches to Go and Healthy Freezer Cooking ebooks. She is a computer information specialist and a work-at-home mom.

Meet Carol: Our family was introduced to 30 Day Gourmet in 1999 by my sister-in-law. At the time, I was working full time and found it difficult to find the time to put a delicious and nutritious meal on the table every night. Our family jumped in gung-ho and cooked for 30 days the first time out! We realized that it saved us time and money but I soon found out it helped me in many other ways. It allowed me to spend more time with my family and less in the kitchen.I left the workforce in 2001 to become a stay at mom. This move forced our family to evaluate our food expenses and was the start of our "What’s on Sale" method.It was also the beginning of what would eventually become Freezer Lunches To Go as we learned how to create a freezer cooking alternative to school lunches. Today, I work for 30 Day Gourmet editing and formatting ebooks, writing newsletters, and answering questions from fellow freezer cooks on our website and facebook page.
