Everything you need to know about fermentation to start a little revolution in your pantry!
Fermentation is one of the hottest kitchen trends of the past two years, and for good reason - fermentation allows us to transform the ordinary to the extraordinary (think: delicious pickles, olives, and ginger beer). But more than that, fermented foods have enhanced nutritional value, aid in digestion, and regulate our immune systems. Fermentation is fun and it results in foods packed full of flavor and health benefits.
The Fermentation Cookbook provides 70 easy, step-by-step, and cost-effective recipes for everything from fermented vegetables, fruits, sugars and honey to milks, cereals, grains and legumes. It covers the science behind fermentation, different types of fermentation processes, and useful fermentation equipment.
So gather your jars, get started on making your own condiments and yogurts, and be on your way to cultivating good health. Your taste buds will be sure to thank you.
Cassandra's Review- While I would be a little bit leary of eating my own DIY fermented creations, I think this book is excellent and full of amazing new ideas. Super easy directions that are very helpful along with photos.
Seriously Good Freezer Meals: 150 Easy Recipes to Save Your Time, Money and Sanity
Don't Freeze Up at Meal Time -- Reach Into the Freezer Instead
Let's admit it: we all want to save time and money while still putting healthy and tasty homemade food on the table. But how? Karrie Truman, creator of the much-beloved blog Happy Money Saver, is going to let you in on a secret: the answer is freezer meals.
When she was an exhausted young mom, Karrie found herself serving processed or fast food at the end of a busy day even though she knew it wasn't what she wanted her family to be eating. Then she discovered freezer meals. Immediately, she had home-cooked, easy and delicious food at her fingertips and more time to spend with loved ones.
In Seriously Good Freezer Meals, Karrie shares 150 recipes photos that will change the way you think about freezer cooking. You won't find your mother or grandmother's freezer meals here (except lasagna, of course). Her recipes include Morning Energy Bars, Empanada Hand Pies, Coconut Cashew Basil Curry Soup, Smoky Grilled Louisiana Turkey Legs, and Layered Chocolate Mousse Cake with tons of vegetarian, gluten-free and vegan options, too. Plus, she adds a bulk-batch chart for ease in making large quantities of each freezer-meal recipe.
Karrie gives you all the tools you need to become a freezer-meal genius: information on shopping, cooking, freezing, thawing and everything in between. The book includes beginner, intermediate and advanced meal plan programs to guide you in cooking 7 to 50 meals in a day. You read that right: 50 meals in a day. No more excuses: it's time to start cooking delicious meals that will have you feeling anything but left out in the cold!
