Fix, Freeze, Feast points the way to placing home-cooked meals on the table each evening even if a busy schedule might make such a goal seemingly impossible.

The trick is to prepare everything ahead of time so that it is waiting in the refrigerator when you get home. Transfer the frozen entrée from the freezer to the fridge so it can safely thaw during the day. Then just pop it into the oven or microwave and in minutes there's a delicious and nourishing meal ready for you and your family.

With so many shoppers buying groceries at warehouse stores like Costco, handling economical bulk purchases can be a problem. By using this handy cookbook to prepare meals ahead of time and then freeze them, that no longer becomes a problem.

The recipes here are lighter and fresher than traditional bulk-cooking recipes, with a focus on simple stir-fries, quick grilled or broiled main courses, popular ethnic dishes, soups, side dishes and ready-to-bake cookie doughs.

You'll find straightforward and flexible meal organization plans with sample shopping lists and prep techniques that will make these 125 recipes a snap to make. The author also includes freezer space saving techniques, labeling and specific heating instructions for each recipe.

Scanning the table of contents you'll find a full range of menu selections for chicken, beef, pork and meatless main dishes. There are also instructions for preparing a range of sauces, marinades, sides, soups, and breakfast items.

If dishes like Vegetable Lasagna, Honey and Spice Pork Kabobs, Shanghai Stir-Fry, Mexi-Stuffed Peppers or Tequila-Lime Chicken sound appetizing, this is a book you'll want to check out. Even if you don't intend to freeze them for future use, these recipes sound pretty good and will bring a little variety to your evening meal.
