We are excited to announce the Once a Month Cooking Family Favorites giveaway for our readers! We are giving away 2 copies of the Once a Month Cooking Family Favorites book!
We recently received a copy of the Once a Month Cooking Family Favorites book. We were excited to receive this book, as my husband (“Engineer”) absolutely loves Bulk & Freezer Cooking, and recently even started a website dedicated specifically to Bulk & Freezer Cooking. Plus, we have lots of great bulk / freezer / OAMC articles here on Engineer a Debt Free Life!
Here is Engineer’s review of the Once a Month Cooking Family Favorites book:
Here is what I liked about the book: The cookbook has a ton of great recipes for bulk cooking, many I have never thought of or heard of. It even has a huge section of gluten free recipes which is very unique. Overall I found this cookbook to be of good substance; it has some really good recipe ideas I have not seen before. I may try some of these recipes on our Bulk & Freezer Cooking website.
Here is what I didn’t like about the book: That being said, it is one of the lamest once a month “cooking” cookbooks I have seen in the sense that all the recipes just have you freeze the prepped raw meat, and then cook it the day you want to use it. This to me is a waste of time and defeats the true purpose of once a month cooking. I guess they should have really called the book “once a month preparing” since it still involves you cooking 30 days a month. For Money Savin’ Momma and me, the whole point of once a month cooking is that all the cooking is completed in one day or weekend. That way when you get home from work, it’s 10 minutes or less to a good home cooked meal… not baking for 50 minutes.
