"What's for dinner?" It's six o'clock, the kids are clamoring for something to eat, and you're tired of slapping the same old thing together, sending out for pizza or grabbing burgers at the local fast-food place.
Once-a-month Cooking has just the help you need. Here's an easy plan you can use to prepare two weeks or a whole month of delicious, main-meal dishes at the same time. 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.
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.
Wow - full of great time-saving ideas, menu plans, easy recipes, step-by-step instructions, and the all-important money-saving hints! A wonderful resource if you want to spend less time in the kitchen and more time out doing whatever you really love!
If you want to get organized and save $$ while providing your family with home cooked meals, this just might be the book for you. Ideas for menu planning, cooking in bulk and some tasty recipes. I used this when my kids were growing up.
