Make-Ahead Meals For Busy Moms Review Giveaway


Are you looking for a gift to give that someone special for Christmas, Birthday, etc? If so I recommend this cookbook. This book was made by a Busy Mom for Busy Mom's (or Dad's). The book is full of recipes that you can make-ahead and even freeze without sacrificing the food's taste and texture. This book is great for new moms, new brides, college graduates,etc! Very simple, easy to get ingredients and fun recipes!

Thank you to the author, Jane Doiron, for giving this Busy Mom a chance to review her cookbook and offer one as a giveaway to one of my lucky readers!

She starts off the cookbook with many Helpful Tips on making meals ahead of time! She suggest a vacuum sealer, stocking up on freezer bags and making sure you mark on your bags all the details about what is in the bag! I love the tip on freezing your food in disposable foil containers. This is handy when you are taking a dish for a pot luck or dropping off food to a friend in need! It saves the hassle of getting the dish back later.

*This books is overflowing with over 140 recipes! ( I had to count because I thought it just had about 100)

*Check out the table of contents! To see all the mouth-watering recipes!

*She includes "A Day Ahead", "Freezing Directions", "Thawing Out" directions, "Several hours before" directions, etc.

*I've made quite a few of the recipes thus far. Each one has had very easy and helpful tips.

Here are a 2 things I made:

Chicken Cannelloni


Italian Sub Salad


Some of the next recipes we will be making are the Big Ginger Cookies, Baked Chicken Chimichangas, Thai Chicken Thighs and Tiramisu.

  1. This book is exactly what I need! If I have to choose a recipe, I would choose the zucchinni apple bread because I have 2 huge zucchinis sitting in my kitchen waiting to be cooked into something yummy!
