The theory behind this book is excellent, but I found that the menus weren't ones that really fit my families likes and dislikes. I found that the way this book was set up made it difficult to substitute in different things that we would prefer. However, I gave the book as many stars as I did because there is a section in the back that gives tons of useful information on creating your own once-a-month cooking plan. That section alone made me SO glad I got a chance to look at this book! I haven't had much chance to play with my own menu selections, but I imagine in the future, we'll be having lots of freezer fun because of it.

By using this method, you'll save time in the kitchen, spend less on food and always have nutritious, ready-to-cook-and-serve meals on hand.
