Author Lori Loomis has written an extensive cookbook telling about how to stock your pantry, develop menus and delve into freezer cooking. All of these things I've been doing for over 30 years, in particular freezer cooking for the past 20 years or so, so I really do not need this book. For the novice cook who is starting out this is the perfect cookbook to purchase and use. Loomis offers plenty of tips on how to cooking safety and how to plan menus. She's also included a nice collection of recipes to help novice cooks get started with their "Operation Dinner" planning.
Some of the recipes you will find in her cookbook include:
Swiss Steak Italian Meatball Soup Basic Baking Mix Pancake and Waffle Mix
This book is an excellent resource for prepping and planning meals ahead. It is very well written, thorough and provides simple recipes and simple methods so you can make tasty meals in little time. Love the recipes with the shopping list at the bottom of each one. I just go to the bottom of the recipe to see what I have to buy and most of the time I don't even bother to look at the recipe itself. Is that easy. The how to freeze section is amazing too. Love the prepping that you can do to make apple pie filling and other fillings. Definitely worth the money that I spent in this book.
This book is awesome! Just what I needed to help me better organize my menus and shopping. We are adopting a teenager and our meal routines have changed from the 2 of us eating anytime and anything handy to having to think ahead and plan meals. This book not only helps with the planning but the recipes are great. I truly dislike cookbooks that have fancy recipes that call for items I can't pronounce let alone find in my local grocery store. All of these recipes not only sound good, but I have already made several and they taste great too. I am so proud to say that I now have a freezer full of shredded chicken and homemade chicken broth. Next we'll work on the beef preparations from scratch. This is fun and now I almost cook like my Mom, almost.
