Format: Paperback
So far I have made about 15-20 of the recipes in this book and not one has been anything less than great. I am a big-time foodie and was afraid this book would be nothing more than mid-western covered dish entrees. WRONG. The soups have been spectacular. The North Woods Wild Rice Soup recipe is well worth the cost of the book alone. The brownie recipe is the best one I've ever made. The entrees have all been great. After using this book for about a month, I coordinated with 3 other friends and we now have a monthly cooking party. It has saved us time and money. The recipes are very easy to modify for lower fat, lower carb, etc. In the three months that I've owned it, it's fast becoming one of my most used cook books. I'm not kidding- NOTHING has been even "average"- it's all been great. I've never had that experience with a cookbook. BUY IT. BUY IT. BUY IT. It takes the hassle out of dinner, so you can enjoy time with your family.

Have tried a few recipes, and have been generally pleased. However, there are numerous recipes that specifically should not be frozen, or are "best made on the day it is to be served" like most of the vegetable side dishes -thereby missing the mark on the reason I bought this book! Then there are the cookies and squares which are not especially unique in their freezer ability - like sugar cookies, brownies... So, rather mixed feelings about this book - as it is a great concept, but mixed message.

I've been trying many recipes from this book, and have yet to be disappointed! I did a couple big cook days prior to our new baby arriving, and love that I can just pull things out in the morning, and have dinner ready to go when my husband gets home, even if the kiddos haven't cooperated that day.

You could use this book for concepts and freezing tips I suppose but the recipes are....well, they're obviously not for everyone. They are definitely not for me and my family! I am an experienced cook who loves to try new things...regular rotations in my kitchen include the occasional homemade baked treats, whole grains, a variety of vegetables (beets, squash, pumpkin, swiss chard, etc) and cuts of naturally raised meats. For example, last night we had slow cooked pork baby back ribs with braised cabbage, curried pumpkin and a raw kale salad with pinenuts, currants and parmesan.

To me, the point of home cooking is both to save money but also to eat healthier. I want to avoid buying processed, high sodium, high fat expensive take out!! So in my mind, healthy dinners don't rely on pre-packaged processed convenience foods, variations on heavy cream (cream, half and half, sour cream, packaged cream cheese, etc). I am lactose intolerant for one!! Almost all the recipes in this book are full of cream. That's a lazy way of adding flavour to food. And I couldn't feed my young child most of this food because she should not be consuming the amount of sodium most of these recipes would have. Is it any wonder they don't give the nutritional information per portion?!

I am really not opposed to bacon and butter and I usually use that stuff in moderation with a massive dose of veggies. These are veggie-deprived recipes (maybe because the author thinks veggies need to be done up on the day of...which is fine...but then I really didn't need this book).

Some examples of processed food/ rich additions (I am quickly flipping through the book right now):
- Elegant Mushroom Cups: 4 Tbsp of margarine (yuck) and 1 cup heavy cream.
