Overview

Buy groceries in bulk, prepare family-friendly dishes, package in meal-sized freezer bags, then stock the freezer with ready-to-defrost-and-serve tasty homemade meals. This is the winning system of Fix, Freeze, Feast, a cookbook that has already attracted an enthusiastic following among busy families.

Millions of shoppers save money by buying groceries in bulk - trays of boneless chicken breasts, pairs of flank steaks, flats of ripe tomatoes. But savings can quickly turn to losses if those bulk quantities spoil in the refrigerator or lie forgotten - unlabeled and unrecognizable under lays of ice crystals - in the back of the freezer.

In the new paperback edition of Fix, Freeze, Feast, authors Kati Neville and Lindsay Tkacsik offer a complete system for taking full advantage of bulk purchasing and advance preparation to ensure no food is ever wasted. They show how easy it is to get organized, prepare ahead, and be ready to put healthful, satisfying meals on the dinner table (or breakfast table, or even brunch table!) at a moment's notice. Theirs is a cookbook price-conscious shoppers will love and warehouse club members shouldn't be without.

Cooks will find 125 delicious, healthful recipes to choose from Each one includes directions for dividing, preparing, and storing raw ingredients; a second set of simple direction is included for thawing, cooking, and enjoying the food. Designed for the way people cook today, Fix, Freeze, Feast meals are lighter and fresher than traditional bulk-cooking recipes, with a focus on simple stews and stir-fries, quick grilled or broiled main courses, and popular ethnic meals such as Beef Fajitas and Cashew Chicken Stir-Fry. Fix, Freeze, Feast, also includes ready-to-bake cookie doughs, soups, side dishes, smoothies, and snacks. With these innovative techniques and recipes, dinner is always in the freezer!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“If you resolved to cook more at home in 2008, Fix, Freeze and Feast can help...In addition to recipes they also have tips for organizing your shopping list, packaging meals and preventing freezer burn.”

Spokane Spokesman-Review

“If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to eat home-cooked meals as a family more often, Fix Freeze, Feast could be just the help you need to accomplish that… Fix Freeze Feast” won’t guarantee getting a scattered family home for dinner more often, but it will definitely make it much easier to get the meal on the table.”

The Register-Guard (Eugene, Ore.)

“Not so much a cookbook as a bulk-saving survival guide for harried cooks everywhere.”

Northern Virginia Magazine

Fix, Freeze, Feast is a smart book to keep on the shelf… There's nothing like a hot meal after a long, hard day at work, especially if all the work was done weeks ago!”

Scripps News Service

“[Fix, Freeze, Feast] delivers some yummy new recipes that are easily stored and don't look or taste like frozen meals when they're served days later... Fix Freeze Feast promises to ease the stress of cooking and ensure that you're well fed, with hearty meals, throughout the week or month."

lhj.com (Ladies Home Journal)

“The authors do a great job offering clear instructions for the cooking, an important final step that is too often left to guesswork.”

Lindsay Tkacsik has always loved cooking with a wide range of foods and flavors. She brings her enthusiasm for bold tastes to both her meal preparation business, Mealtime Solutions, and her cookbook writing. Lindsay lives with her husband and three daughters in Washington.

    Make-Ahead Meals Made Healthy

    I like the idea of make-ahead freezer meals for saving time and money, especially when the focus is on healthier recipes that don't rely on condensed "cream of" canned soups like other cookbooks of this genre seem to, which is why this one appeals to me. The authors have put together a good collection of easy to make, sensible recipes that use regular fresh ingredients I can find in my local grocery store.

    We've enjoyed the Urban Garlic Chicken (crock-pot version) for a great Sunday dinner, and the Honey-Glazed Chicken Thighs. Other recipes I'll try include Party Enchiladas, Teriyaki Chicken, Cream of Mushroom Soup, Mozzarella Meatballs, and Beef Fajitas.

    Included are tips for make-ahead menu planning and cooking plus chapters with recipes for chicken, beef, pork, vegetarian dishes, sauces, marinades, flavored butters, breakfast, snacks, and sweets. There are no photos which is the only negative, but it really doesn't detract from the good recipes. The book also includes labels for the recipes that can be photocopied, or one can go to the publisher website and download a printable file.

    I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.

    Love this book!

    This is a GREAT cookbook. I have a totally stocked freezer right now and just love it. It is easy to make some simple changes, i.e. packaging in smaller portion sizes, etc. I plan to get a few friends together and each pick one or two recipes and then swapping for some more variety.

    You do use a LOT of Ziploc-style bags though. I hope to get together with my Tupperware lady to cut down on the packaging waste.

    I bought this book three years ago along with 3 other similar books.  It has become the most frequently used cookbook in the house.  I've barely cracked the other three because I keep coming back to this one.   The recipes are easy enough to involve the kids (when making 6lbs of meatballs you want help) Though a couple of them do take some muscle and REALLY big pots.  It's worth the extra effort to have good healthy meals tailored to the family's tastes on hand all the time.

    Ok if....

    We do not have access to big box stores, so much of the info is not as helpful as I would have liked. I think some of the ideas still should work though.
