This book has a handy reference with each recipe so that you can make multiple batches if you’d like to freeze it bulk. So you can make the recipe once, or if you like it you can make it x3, x6, or x9. While these recipes didn't fit my normal cooking style, I did get some helpful tips and hints.

I love the idea of cooking once and then freezing several meals from it, but many of these types of cookbooks have very boring recipes. Not so with "Don't Panic--more Dinner's in the Freezer"; there are a surprising number of unique and tasty recipes in this cook-and-freeze style cookbook.

I've been trying to cook more with chicken and found some great possibilities here that I look forward to trying, particularly Grilled Honey-Lime Chicken, All-Seasons Sesame Chicken, Chicken and Broccoli Quich
I loved this concept: cook 3 "meals", eat one, freeze two for later. As I work through what we like, what works frozen, and what we'll eat that much of, I plan to do this. It's easy in Pepper plate to scale recipes up 3x for shopping and prep and then back to 1x for cooking/freezing. I also liked some of the freezing techniques.

I didn't care much for many of the recipes. For me, there are too many 1980s "casserole" foods remind me of Hamburger Helper. However, I get it that those are what freez

I enjoyed the book I still refer back to it. Since I am the mom to nine I cook a lot and need large recipes and this has that!! I would like to see more pics. A good cookbook.
I liked this version of Don't Panic... much better than the original. The recipes were more flavorful and used more spices and less can of cream soups. Definitely more real food oriented.

I love making dinner and freezing the leftovers for future meals. This series of books is a little different in that you assemble the meals and freeze them, then defrost and cook at a later date.

They give plenty of tips on how to store the food, what to serve with the main dish, what you need to prepare the nigh
This is an especially great cookbook if you're not watching your waistline. They are very liberal with the butter, flour and oil in a lot of recipes. They do include some lower calorie options, but ONLY the "Lighter Fare" options have nutritional information. All that being said, they give great instructions and there are some things that I'll make from this cookbook. Mostly ways to jazz up chicken that I can put in the freezer and cook in minutes! :D

Like the first book, but with different recipes. Do note, there are no vegetarian main courses other than soup.
I've only recently got this book and already it's been book marked for recipes I want to try. The recipes that I've looked through seem easy to make well, with ingredients that I can get at a grocery store for reasonable prices.
There are several recipes I want to try.
I borrowed the book from the library and decided that I want to buy a used copy. I really like how this book gives you the recipe, how to freeze the food, and how to defrost and reheat.
Taught me different freezer methods & that I can basically freeze most anything.

I copied a half a dozen or so recipes out of this book. Not sure I'll freeze the baked goods but I want to try some of the recipes anyway.

I think I prefer this one to the first in the series!
Some very excellent recipes, lots of tips, and techniques.
I'm completely loving this freezer meal cooking.
It's quick and fast and amazingly great for busy people.
Good tips and hints for shopping for and prepping freezer meals. The recipes look pretty good, but I was hoping for more crockpot options. Will have to revisit this book later.
Same as the first book, but more good recipes. I tagged items to copy and decided I need to just buy it as I had so many recipes tagged.
Love, love, love this cookbook. Tons of great family recipes from breads to desserts and everything in between.
Got some great recipes from the first book, hoping this one has some good ones too!
Some really yummy recipes in here!
