Unique things about this cookbook:

- gives quantities for ingredients for a single dinner, and also for 3 dinners, so you could make 1 for dinner tonight, and freeze 2 for later. Gives good instructions on freezing meals and cooking at a later date.

- the recipes are unique and not your ordinary "condensed cream soup on chicken". So far I made Reuban Casserole, Pumpkin Ice Box cake, and Black Bean and Rice Salad. All of them were really good and definitely something new.

Looking forward to trying m

My personal preference is for cookbooks that have pictures for each recipe, but I'm looking forward to trying quite a few of the recipes - I marked almost a third of the 100 in the book as sounding yummy and worth attempting. It's helpful to know that these recipes will work when frozen and several look to have the potential to become regulars on our family menu rotation.

There were numerous typographical errors in the recipes (go to their website here for corrected copies of 23 of the recipes) a

Pretty simplistic.

Nothing special with these recipes. Very plain, boring in my estimation. Use Pinterest instead; save yourself the money. Seriously 20 words?

Some of these recipes are truly fabulous and I love being able to pull dinner out of the freezer. There are mistakes in the book, however, so using the recipes calls for using common sense, and I also found corrections listed on their website (you have to search for the corrections; they don't advertise the fact that 45 of the recipes had mistakes!). The concept and the basic recipes are solid enough that I'm willing to laugh at the horrible editing job.

While I have not done a full OAMC session, I have enjoyed several recipes in particular from this cookbook--My Big Dream Greek Pasta and Five Spice Grilled Chicken. There are plenty of other recipes in this book that I would like to try out...once I find the time. :-)

The recipes in this book were disappointing. Not much like what you get at Dream Dinners although there were a few good recipes.

Found a number of good recipes in this one. I liked how it attempted to cut back on unnecessary fat in ingredients.
excellent freezer cooking cookbook. My favorite recipes are the Kielbasa Bean Soup and Spicy Lime Chicken.
