Make-Ahead Meals for Busy Moms by Jane Doiron

Make-Ahead Meals for Busy Moms Cookbook consists of 140 family-favorite make-ahead recipes, which are recipes that can be frozen ahead, assembled ahead, or cooked ahead and reheated. The cookbook’s recipes are a combination of all three.

The Make-Ahead Meals for Busy Moms cookbook includes recipes for freezable meals like Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs, Sloppy Joe’s, Chicken Noodle Soup and Hearty Chili. Recipes for frozen marinated meats such as Teriyaki Chicken, Thai Chicken and Taco Meat allow for quick meals on busy nights. The make-ahead strategy assures that with a freezer stocked with make-ahead meals, busy moms will spend less time at the grocery store and less money on unhealthy prepared or take-out food.

Jane Doiron is a busy working mom of two boys. She is an Elementary School teacher with a passion for cooking and experimenting with recipes. With her busy schedule, Jane has found that make-ahead meals (meals prepared in advance) are time-savers, money-savers and are the best alternatives to eating “take-out”, which is not usually a healthy meal choice. Jane’s cookbook is the result of her years of seeking out new recipes, experimenting with family-favorite recipes, and turning them into make-ahead meals.

My Review:

Warning: Don't look at this book when you're hungry-Could be hazardous to your diet!

When I saw this book come up for review I knew I had to review it anything that says, "Busy Moms" is a must. This book isn't full of pictures. Good or bad- guess that depends on you. My finished product generally doesn't look like the picture anyway so who needs a picture. Pictures are a plus for my teenage daughter though. She likes pictures in her cookbooks. However, she has made recipes out of this book. The recipes are quick & easy and that's a plus for any busy mom. Each recipe has a tip on how to make it ahead of time and then prepare it the next day or gives freezing instructions for farther down the road. Doiron also provides us with kitchen tips the cookbook.
