Fix, Freeze, Feast by Kati Neville and Lindsay Tkacsik

Whenever I make a trip to a warehouse store, I'm always inspired with eagerness and ambition over all of the money I can save and all of the delicious meals that I can make by buying in bulk. That enthusiasm wanes when I get home and face the stark reality of eating chicken every night for the rest of my life (or the rest of the month, at least), or throwing all those savings into the garbage if I don't.

Fix, Freeze, Feast: Tthe Delicious, Money-saving Way to Feed Your Family solves that dilemma by providing a plethora of ideas of how to use those bulk buys in a variety of different meals that can be prepared in advance and frozen until needed. This book is a one-stop shop for anyone looking for the savings of buying food in bulk without the waste of throwing away unused produce and meat, or the monotony of eating the same thing night after night after night.

While the book focuses on feeding families of four to six, the beauty of these recipes is that when you freeze them, you can do so in any serving size you want, making it just as useful to a larger family as to a smaller one. For some of the recipes, like the Feta and Spinach Lasagna Rolls, you can thaw the exact number of rolls that you need to use, making it even easier to customize exactly based on the number of people at your dinner table. Plus, one batch gives you enough for multiple meals, saving you time as well as money.

For the recipes that are barbeque friendly, both indoor and outdoor cooking instructions are provided, making it easier to improvise depending on the day's weather. They also offer helpful tips and tricks for planning, shopping, cooking, and turning your own favorite dishes into freezer-friendly meals.
