"Just turn on the oven and put it in as soon as you get home from your busy day. Get washed and changed and set the table, and it will be ready by the time you've finished your essential chores."
This is an informative guide on how to store food properly. From freezer to thawing food, then heating in the microwave or oven, you'll be feeding your family healthily and cheaply. I've been canning and preserving food for quite some time now, so I was able to pick up a few pointers from the authors. Basically, cooking several times a month frees up your time to enjoy other things. So you'll save time and money when you freeze in bulk. What I liked the most was the idea of color coded containers and labeling for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A useful tip is to spread out flat your containers in the freezer and then later stack them. I will use the Split Pea recipe, the Make-Ahead Tomato Sauce and I especially like the Homemade Chili Powder recipe and the Homemade Italian Seasoning one but the rest of the recipes were just o.k.
