More Than 100 Freezer-Friendly Recipes for Make-Ahead Meals

MAKE-AHEAD MEALS MADE HEALTHY by Michele Borboa, M.S., hits bookshelves on July 15, 2011. With the crazy summer months upon us and busy moms shuttling their families to and from the beach or the pool long past the time they’d normally be making dinner, this book provides the easy healthy answer to fitting it all in. Within the pages of this one-stop guide, readers will discover how to cook the best, most nutritious food for themselves and their families while saving time and money by preparing meals which can be fixed-and-frozen ahead and enjoyed at almost anytime later.

Unlike the sodium-laced, preservative-filled meals readers might find in their grocer's freezes, the recipes in this book feature wholesome ingredients, full of flavors that harmoniously come to life the instant they are reheated so meals don't just taste as good as the day they’re stored away, but better! By pairing flavor-rich ingredients with others which allow them mingle and bind together while frozen, Borboa’s approach to the make-ahead meal plan will give readers a more complex menu of options to choose from when setting about to cook for the weeks and months ahead and they will discover that fresh from the freezer really is fresh!

Recipes include:

Saucy Saffron Chicken;
Whole-Grain Pesto Pasta Casserole;
Asian-Spiced Tuna Cakes
Apricot-Pistachio Rice Pilaf
Vegetarian Teriyaki Stir-Fry
Fast and Easy Fresh Herb Focaccia
Baked Gingerbread Cake Doughnuts with Maple Glaze
Blackberry Buttermilk Cake
In MAKE-AHEAD MEALS MADE HEALTHY readers will delight in learning that from comforting casserole and lasagna recipes made new again with fresh veggies and whole grains, to show-stopping breakfast baked goods and sweet treats, putting food on the table fast doesn’t have to mean “fast food”!
