Book Review: The Big Cook


It’s no secret I love freezer cooking. I don’t remember who first recommended this book but I absolutely love it! It is a book that I would actually buy and with the plethora of recipes on the internet I never buy cookbooks!

I find that most days by the time it’s time to start supper I’m tired and the last thing I feel like doing is making a big mess and pile of dishes in my kitchen. This is one of the reasons my slow cooker gets so much use, I can throw everything in the crockpot in the morning and then just forget about it. When dinner time comes around the kitchen is clean and all we have to do is serve ourselves.

When Luke was born I had three months worth of meals in the freezer and it was wonderful! I loved just pulling out something for dinner and not having to worry.

Now onto the book.. This book is by far the best freezer cookbook I have read so far. The recipes are divided into three categories: Beef, Chicken, and Pork. My favourite feature is that each recipe has ingredients for 1, 4, 6, or 8 meals. That is fantastic because that way you can try the meal and make sure your family likes it before you make a bunch for your freezer.

There is a great variety of recipes that I really think would appeal to almost anyone. I was pleasantly surprised at how many recipes appealed to me when I was first looking through it.

Each recipe is assembled and then cooked the day you want to eat it. Most of the recipes give cooking instructions for the oven and the slow cooker… how cool is that!? I think that is what sold me… take it out of the freezer and put it in the slow cooker? I’m sold! Some also have BBQ instructions which would be great in the summer!

This is an awesome freezer cooking book, if you are in the market I highly recommend it!!

  1. Sounds like an awesome book! Not sure if I want to pay $30 though (on amazon.com)
    I'm impressed at the 3 months of meals you had in your freezer! Would you mind sharing some of the things you froze? I have about a dozen things on my list to freeze but would love some new ideas.
