Make Ahead Meals for Busy Moms Cookbook Review and Giveaway...

Cookbook for Busy Moms
Your busy mom lifestyle dictates quick get-on-the table meals, but how do you prepare and cook a delicious meal at the end of your busy day when you are simply out of time and energy?

It’s simple! Here's how: Make-Ahead Meals for Busy Moms Cookbook. This is Jane Doiron’s cookbook of savory, family-favorite recipes that were individually home-tested and selected. Make Ahead Meals are:

• Simple to prepare.
• Simple to assemble ahead of schedule.
• Simple to freeze ahead.
• Simple for the whole family to enjoy.

Jane Doiron helps you, a very busy mom like herself, to put a fabulous dinner on the table eve ry night for friends, or just for the family, with a minimum of fuss and a maximum of flavor.
Jane's goal was to seek out main dish, family-favorite recipes that could be make ahead meals without sacrificing the food’s taste and texture by freezing. After years of home-testing recipes, Jane has compiled this must-have cookbook with specific make-ahead directions. In addition, Jane includes her best recipes for clever side dishes, flavorful appetizers and luscious desserts. Imagine opening your freezer to pick out a family-favorite appetizer, main dish, or dessert, and all you have to do is thaw and heat it!

Make-ahead meals are a healthy and economical alternative to take-out and preservative filled, pre-packaged foods. With make ahead meal planning, you are making fewer trips to the grocery store, and saving money otherwise spent on unhealthy, take-out and fast foods. It’s simple. Give yourself a break during the hectic weeknights with Jane’s make-ahead meal recipes. Spend the time that you save outside of the kitchen doing things you enjoy.

Thanks to Jane Doiron I got to review this awesome cookbook! I was so excited when I got this book in the mail! I have made meals ahead before and it worked out great for my family! I love that the recipes are fast, easy and yummy! I also liked that it has helpful tips inside! I'm excited to try more of the recipes soon!

Thanks to Jane Doiron I get to give one
lucky reader a copy of this great cookbook!

How wonderful it would be to have a cookbook like this, have it all planned out and not experience that daily pressure of what do I fix. I cook all 3 meals as my husband can come home for lunch. THis would be great.
