    Soooo wanted to give this 5 stars...

    I bought this book in hopes of saving time. I did make 2 weeks worth and the recipes have been delicious, so far. Problem is there are SO MANY errors. If you take the time to double check your list and the recipe directions, it is super nice to have meals in the freezer all ready to go. Such a horrible proofread almost ruins this book, but I will still use it. The recipes are great!

    Ok

    Wish they would have taken some extra time to put the nutritional values with each recipe.

    Great Cooking

    I love, love, love this recipe book! I was getting tired of my other recipe book for frozen meals, and this one goes far and beyond anything I could imagine. It's the most thorough and organized recipe book I've ever seen! It lists all the ingredients you'll need at the store, items you'll need to freeze them and what you'll need to prep. The food is delicious and very kid friendly. My kids love the recipes and it's just as fantastic even after freezing. I bought one for my friend and then I convinced another friend to buy one too. Great book!
