    MAKING FREEZER COOKING A LIFESTYLE

    Congratulations on taking your first freezer cooking quiz ever! If you're like we once were, you noticed a few gaps in your freezer cooking knowledge. No prob. As self-proclaimed (and tongue-in-cheek!) "freezer cooking evangelists," we're passionate about resourcing you for this lifestyle change that will benefit you and your family over the long haul. In this section, we'll quickly motivate and set you up for success before you dive into filling that cold chest, addressing questions like: What are the advantages of freezer cooking? How should you freeze and thaw meals? What foods should you avoid freezing? How long can you freeze foods? Do I need a deep freezer?

    FREEZER COOKING PART Y: A one-time event where a group gathers together to cook, assemble, and package a variety of freezer meals.

    FREEZER CLUB: An ongoing small group of friends who commit to regularly cooking freezer-friendly meals for one another. Members prepare recipes at home on their own time and then swap at a meeting. We'll also equip you with two ways to share the freezer stocking load with friends, both at one-time Freezer Cooking Parties and in an ongoing Freezer Club. Learning to freezer cook on our own and with friends has positively transformed how we prepare food, shop, eat, and spend our time and money. We think this lifestyle shift will do the same for you, too. Let's get started on a change you won't regret!

    CHAPTER 1

    A Deep Dive into the Cold Chest

    Freezer cooking pays off over time, but there is a little bit of a learning curve. That's why, in this chapter, we're aiming to motivate you with the big picture of this lifestyle. Then, we'll walk you through six essential steps to making successful freezer meals, as well as address all your burning questions. From the very basics to the very specific, we are diving in and sharing everything we know.

    WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF FREEZER COOKING?

    As we mentioned in our own stories in the introduction, freezer cooking can help you and your family in so many ways. Wow, isn't it motivating to know that it provides all of the following benefits?

    1. Saves money because you'll be buying in bulk and eating at home. It's no secret that when you buy food in bulk quantities, it is usually cheaper. By planning your meals, especially in a Freezer Club (see page 25), and cooking in large quantities, you'll see your grocery bill go down significantly. We've found that when we cook this way, a four-serving meal tends to cost around $8 to $12 depending on the ingredients needed. This translates to about $2 to $3 per person for a wholesome, healthy meal. Plus, having ready-to-go meals within reach reduces the temptation to spend cash eating out. Who needs to wait for takeout when you have Turkey Pesto Paninis or Parmesan and Herb Chicken Tenders in the freezer, just a few minutes away from being piping hot?

    2. Cuts down on prep and cooking time, leaving you with more freedom to relax and spend time with loved ones. Let's be honest. Cooking a well-rounded, healthy dinner every night is a daunting task for anyone. Deciding what to make, shopping, prepping, cooking, and cleaning up can sap the last bit of physical and mental energy you have after a long day. Add a few tired, grumpy kids to the mix, and the dinner hour can be quite a challenge. By having meals that you doubled from a previous meal or made with a group of friends (see Chapters 2 and 3) ready to go in the freezer, you'll cut down on all those extra little trips to the store during the week.

    January 1, 2018

    Conner and Tiemeyer, co-creators of ThrivingHomeBlog.com, are self-styled "freezer meal evangelists" dedicated to making cooking easier and cheaper for busy families. Here, they share healthful, predominantly savory recipes (e.g., peaches and cream baked oatmeal, pesto chicken lasagna rolls, straight from Alaska salmon burgers, killer carnitas) that can be frozen and reheated without a significant loss in quality. To help home cooks stock their freezers more speedily, they suggest a freezer club or a freezer cooking party to divide the work among friends. They also offer practical guidance on storage times, thawing methods, and freezable containers. VERDICT Highly recommended for fans of make-ahead meals and batch cooking. Alea Milham's Prep-Ahead Meals from Scratch and Robin Donovan's The Healthy Make-Ahead Cookbook would make excellent companions.
