This book breaks it all down by the type of meat you want to make for the month and all your options with it. It also has sides, condiments, and breakfast options. The time saver aspect along with the food options at my fingertips had me from the get-go. I love that the author is about being frugal and avoiding waste. I feel like this book has set me up with all the problems I could fall into addressed. From filling to freezing to flavor to avoiding freezer burn, this book has it all spelled out. I’m thankful for the soup area because that’s my go-to for the season we are in at the moment. Happy Cooking. I received a digital copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

FIX FREEZE FEAST starts off with the following two chapters. The Beauty of Make Ahead Meals, and About Our Fix and Freeze Recipes. These chapters give readers valuable information on the ins and outs of freezing food. What will and won’t, how you should and shouldn’t. I never realized just how much can be frozen, and I learned some things how to freeze food properly. Following those helpful chapter, the book moves on to recipes. So many recipes. Over 35 chicken recipes, over 20 for beef, over 20 pork! You’ll all find recipes for Veggies, soup, Sauces, Marinades, Flavored Butters, Breakfast, Snacks, and Sweets. Just a few of the recipes you’ll find are . . . Mango-Cranberry Chicken, Sun-Dried Pesto Chicken, Cashew Chicken Stir-Fry, Tuscan Meatloaf, Mozzarella Meatballs, 4 Bs Flank Steak, Pepper Jelly Pork Chops, Pork Stew, Asparagus and Potato Frittata, Wild Rice and Nut Bake, Seafood Creole, Maple Marinade, Basic Red Sauce, Walnut-Pesto Butter, Very Vanilla Snickerdoodles, and lots more! There are mouth-watering recipes for just about every taste, that are in varying degrees difficulty. While not for each recipe, there are beautiful colored photos throughout FIX FREEZE FEAST that serve to temp you with the dishes they show. Rather you want to learn more about freezing your food, looking for new recipes, or want to add a new toe to your cookbook collection, I think you’ll be pleased with FIX FREEZE FEAST.

So many times dinner time rolls around and we are stuck standing in the kitchen like a deer in the headlights wondering what to make. With Fix, Freeze, Feast, 2nd Edition, you will have meals ready in the freezer to warm up and eat at any time. The overall premise of the book is that you would purchase in bulk to save money and then make multiple portions of each recipe. You would then individually package each meal into freezer-safe containers, freezing them for use later. The beginning of the book starts with The Beauty Of Make-Ahead Meals which explains why you might want to try this method. Not only can you save time, money, and frustration but it explains the myriad other benefits as well. In the brief explanation About Our Fix And Freeze Recipes, the author explains how this book differs from conventional cookbooks. You will also see recommendations about where to start and how to proceed. Next comes Planning For Success. This section offers the steps you’ll need to take for an organized batch cook. The level of detail involved is excellent, it covers everything from how to shop for your ingredients all the way through to how to fix some cooking mistakes. Using the information in the first section of this cookbook you could easily adapt your own recipes for use with this method. However, if you want to start with something that is tested, or you want to try something new, they have included several categories of recipes you might want to try. Recipe categories include: Chicken Main Dishes Beef Main Dishes Pork Main Dishes Veggie And Seafood Mains, Sides, And Soups Sauces, Marinades, And Flavored Butters Breakfast, Snacks, And Sweets Each of the recipes includes the quantity information, how many meals it makes and how many servings each meal provides. A brief introduction is followed by the ingredients and directions. The directions start with the batch cooking information and then have a separate section for the instructions for preparing one frozen meal. The Pack It Up information also gives you the required freezer containers and quantities you needed to store and freeze the recipe. Some of the recipes also give tips or further information about the recipe. Only about a quarter of the recipes have a picture, but those pictures are full page and beautifully done. Impressive Variety And Detail I was very impressed with the sheer variety of recipes in this book. It would not have been unexpected had 90% of the recipes been ground meat used in different ways. This book gives you a lot of really good recipes to start with. It also provides you with the means to use your own recipes which is invaluable. Everything is here right from the shopping list to the end product. It has been my experience that whenever I try to make enough to use as leftovers somehow they always get eaten. There’s nothing to freeze or only one portion left. The FFF method will ensure you have leftovers and that people aren’t overindulging (because everything is portioned). One thing I thought was particularly ingenious is the photocopiable freezer inventory table included. You can record what is in the freezer available for your meal. On their website, you can find labels with preparation instructions for your recipes. You can print them onto Avery labels and attach to your freezer meal. This will definitely help in keeping your labels correct and legible. After all of the recipes comes a section called Branching Out. You get information about a

I was excited to read this new cook book by Kati Neville and Lindsay Ahrens. I belong to a co-op and shop at a local market, so I am familiar with preparing ahead and freezing. Fix, Freeze, Feast takes this experience to a new level. The dishes are varied with some more complex to fix than others. Some are quick and easily put together. Once you prepare and freeze the meals, the cooking is easy. When you are having guest over, you can spend your time enjoying your guest, until the meal is ready . At the beginning of the book you will find instructions on getting started. Their are several great tips and ideas through out the book on purchasing in bulk and using the ingredients listed. Some may be new to you. The photography is excellent. You can picture the dish and know how it will look, especially if it is one you have not made before. If this is a new concept to you, start slow. Don't be overwhelmed and try to prepare for the entire month. Make one recipe a weekend and see how it frees up your time. Start a cooking club with a few friends, as was suggested. I know I will use this cook book often and I highly recommend it.

Fix Freeze Feast is a collection of 150 recipes of meals that you can freeze ahead of time during those busy weeks. With simple to use recipes without hard to find ingredients, this book has something for everyone. From your three main dishes of chicken, beef, pork to veggie options, special sauces, butters and even breakfast options, you can make a meal well advance of time for those days that nothing seems to be going right! This was a well-planned book that isn't hard to follow and it even has all the chicken recipes in one chapter so you can find what you want, fast! Some of these recipes look really good and easy to make but I think the only hard part would be making a recipe for later when I think it would be hard to not eat it right then and there!! I do have to say that the pictures in this book help out in a way that you could see what a recipe is supposed to look like without giving too much expectation of something that is hard to make. Thank You to Kati Neville & Lindsay Ahrens for sharing these really good recipes for people that sometimes just doesn't have the time to cook a home-cooked meal!! I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley!
