Stock Your Freezer

book coverIf you are like me, you've been burned by cookbooks before. You know the ones - the cover looks great, lots of hype, the pictures are glossy and delicious-looking, but after buying it you only end up liking one or two of the recipes. So, now I rarely buy a cookbook without first test-driving a library copy. My most recent test drive was fabulous, and not only will I buy a copy for myself, but I may gift a few copies too.
