COOKS PRAISE 30 DAY GOURMET


I absolutely love this way of cooking!!! I love the time I DON'T have to spend cooking at night. The recipes are really good, too. THANKS, THANKS, THANKS!!
Cyndi
Amarillo, Texas

I bought my wife your cookbook for her birthday and within a week our freezer was full. Not only does it save her time cooking, but since it's my job to clean up after dinner, having most of the cooking done ahead of time means I'm finished quicker, too. And that means more time to play with our 10 month old son!
Elliot
Jacksonville, Florida


It's so nice to have so many choices for dinner right at your fingertips. Thanks!
Michael
Walton, Indiana

This is the most brilliant idea I've seen in a long time.
Kelly
Bothell, Washington

I just got my manual and it is great! So easy to read and follow. Everything is at your fingertips.
Kristen
Clarkston, Michigan

Your website is great. But when all is said and done, being able to take 15-20 easy meals to my two kids and load up their freezers (they work tons of hours and do "take-out" all too much) will be a great surprise.
Donna
Baltimore, Maryland

Thanks for the great idea. I've found that many of my favorite recipes will do well with this technique. Now I can work late, get caught in LA traffic, still get out a good meal, and have time to work on my hobbies!

Ventura, California

PARENTS & FAMILIES PRAISE 30 DAY GOURMET

My friend and I are having a great time with this. Our husbands are proud of us and our kids aren't hungry anymore. We're not running through the drive-thru or making a meal out of soccer field food. Thank you for inspiring us! It's well worth it and we're hooked.
Melanie
Hazelwood, Missouri

The best part about 30 Day Gourmet cooking is how much my husband brags about our full freezer to all of our friends. As a working mom, this has been a godsend. My kids love the recipes.
Mary
Des Moines, Iowa

You gals have saved my life! I am the mother of 4 children ages 6,4,4,2 and a wife of a husband that works long hours. The 30 Day Gourmet plan has made my dinner hour as pleasant as can be expected with 4 small children. Thank you, thank you!!
Gretchen
New Castle, Indiana

Although we are a small family, I was glad to see that is not a problem because your system isn't just geared to "large" families. This is a true FAMILY cookbook. Thank you for easy to follow instructions and ingredients I can pronounce.
Joanne
Charlotte, North Carolina

I just wanted to tell you how much my husband and I have enjoyed our two cooking days. We plan on having many more! Having food ready to go was especially helpful to us during the holidays when our son had surgery on December 23rd. We are telling everyone we know how much time and money we have saved, and how good your recipes are. Thank you for putting your thoughts on organizing a cooking day down on paper for others to benefit too!
Pamela
Baltimore, Maryland

I really enjoy using your cookbook. Having two small children and working a full-time job, it has made my life a LOT easier. I also love your website. It's great to get new recipes and hear everyone else's cooking stories and tips.
Becky
Lubbock, Texas

I bought my wife your cookbook for her birthday and within a week our freezer was full.

And that means more time to play with our 10 month old son!
Elliot
Jacksonville, Florida

My 18 year old son and I made several meals for him to put in single serving sizes and take to his college apartment. He finds this to be a quick and easy way to have home-cooked meals.
Liz
Rancho Cordova, California

I absolutely cannot imagine going back to the daily grind of figuring out what to serve at dinnertime. It has greatly improved the quality of meals my family eats and has improved the atmosphere at my home between those hours of 4-6 p.m. My friend, Karen, is a joy to cook with and has inspired us to cook about 100 meals each time so we are cooking for about 2-3 months each time. Thanks again for your great cooking manual!
Kim
Bloomington, Illinois

I purchased your cookbook while I was home on maternity leave. My daughter is now 7 months old. I was going crazy every night trying to feed her, the dog, my husband and me. I finally pulled out you book and got 3 weeks worth of dinners in the freezer! I feel like the weight of the world is off my shoulders. Now I can spend more time relaxing at night. Thanks so much!
Amanda
Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

I have to tell you how grateful I am to have discovered your book. You've made a major difference in the evening stress level in my house! I can come home, pop supper in the oven, help the kids with piano and homework and we can still eat a great meal together.
Shirley
Knoxville, Tennessee

Well, we did it. We had our first cooking day! It was a blast. We both agreed that it was hard work but we will do it again and again. We enjoyed the chance to visit and laugh without having the kids interrupt us constantly. But instead of just going out to lunch and wasting a couple of hours so that we could visit and have some quiet time, we stayed home and cooked. We finished the day with 41 meals each and a huge sense of accomplishment and joy knowing that for the next 6 weeks we wouldn't have to worry about dinner. Thanks to both of you so much for showing us this fun way to make our lives easier. And to our delight and surprise our families have loved EVERY recipe. Thanks, too, for the additional recipes on your website. It's great to buy a cookbook and continue to get recipes and support. Thanks again from two moms with more time on their hands.
Jody and Cheryl
San Jose, California

When my best friend from college had her first baby last summer, I made plans to fly to see her in the fall just before she would return to work. I decided to give her meals in her freezer for a baby gift instead of more clothes, thereby giving her peace of mind about dinner when she goes back to work and more time with her baby on those crazy days of balancing it all! When I left, she had 18 main dishes in her freezer and told me that she wanted the same thing for Christmas. I think I'll send her one of your cookbooks instead – it's cheaper than a plane ticket! Thank you for helping me give one of the best presents I have even given. You two are great!
Sheila
Flagler Beach, Florida

You just can't imagine how much you've changed my life. Cooking for a family of 5 is no longer a burden but a joy. I have started using your cookbook recipes for gifts also. When I have friends who are sick or just had a baby, I freeze a week's worth of meals and give it to them. They love not having the extra cooking duty and I just include the extra meals in my monthly freezing. Thank you so much!

PENNY PINCHERS PRAISE 30 DAY GOURMET

I love how 30 Day Gourmet cooking simplifies my life and reduces the lunch and dinner rush. We don't order out as often so we are saving money and eating healthier food!
Julie
Vandalia, Illinois

I just love your cookbook! It has been one of the best things that I have bought. It really does save me a lot of time and money on meals. My family and I don't eat as many fast food meals because I now have my own fast food meals! I work full time so it is nice to come home to good, home-cooked meals that do not take a lot of time to prepare because one day each month, I pre-prepare the meal. Thanks. This has really made life a lot easier for me!
Linda
Ft. Wayne, Indiana

A friend and I just finished our second cooking day. I was used to a small grocery budget and was glad to find that I could cook this way and still keep the costs down. In fact, now that I use your cookbook I don't have to "skimp" on great meals! Thanks!
Becky
Vancouver, Washington

This cookbook is the best money I have ever invested!
Lynn
Ashton, Iowa

Last week I made 35 main dishes for just $200! I am so thrilled with all of the food in my freezer that I just had to write and thank you. I wasn't really even trying to save! We spend at least that much going out to dinner only 8 times!
Terri
Pullman, Washington

I've been using 30 Day Gourmet for about two years. I recently compared my household budget from last year to this year. What a surprise! I cut our grocery spending by almost $1000!!!! I have 3 sons (a 9 year old and 3 year old twins) so their eating habits aren't getting any lighter. Thanks for the wonderful idea!
Trudy
Aurora, Illinois

Most of my friends thought I was nuts trying to cook for a month or more in advance, but they have changed their minds when they saw how well we are eating. We have saved hundreds of dollars as well. Thank you for sharing this great idea.
Mary Ann
Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

My 18 year old son and I made several meals for him to put in single serving sizes and take to his college apartment. He finds this to be a quick and easy way to have home-cooked meals.
Liz
Rancho Cordova, California

My toddler has food allergies and it is hard to find recipes for him. In fact, for a long time, your apple bars and granola bars were the only snack foods he would eat. Since I have to make all of his foods from scratch, it's nice to make a lot at once and put them in the freezer. Even without those recipes, the cookbook would still be a bargain. I saved AT LEAST the price of the cookbook in the first month by buying and cooking in bulk and that doesn't even take into consideration all the times I've been tempted to go out to a restaurant but didn't because dinner was already in the freezer.
Heidi
Gainesville, Florida

My friend and I have cooked 4 times now and love your manual. Of all the systems we'd read about, this was the only one easy enough for us to try. We've recommended it to several others and now have friends who are also cooking. We really have a lot of fun doing it!
Paige
Ocala, Florida 

SENIORS PRAISE 30 DAY GOURMET

My daughter and I cooked all day this past Saturday and had a ball!! What fun to have all those meals in the freezer and so economical, too. I plan to use this method for a long, long time!!
Marge
Omaha, NE

I just started my daughter-in-law in freezer cooking and she loves it! I had been cooking this way for years but your cooking manual made it easier to teach her how to do it.
Ann
Des Moines, IA

I just cooked with my mom yesterday and we had a blast! My husband loves everything I have cooked so far! I'm so excited about this! It was so nice to just go to the freezer and pull out whatever I wanted to eat for supper and almost all of the work was already done. That you so much. This cookbook is changing my life!
Lisa
Pensecola, FL

Your method works well for retirees who do not want to spend every day thinking of what to cook when we have more fun things to do. The 6 person meals gives us 3 meals in the freezer. I have enjoyed your recipes so much and tell everyone who will listen about this method of cooking.
Joyce
Phoenix, AZ

I have your cooking manual and have used many of the recipes. My freezer space is limited to my refritgerator freezer but I've found if I use only freezer bags I can store a fairly large number of items. Since we are retired and frequently travel in a motor home, it works well to bring made-ahead items along in our motor home freezer.
Ruth
Indianapolis, IN

My kids are all grown and flown away. This is a great way to cook for the two of us and to have a couple of large entrees for company especially the unexpected guests. Since we live in the foothills a lot of friends just drop in. Thanks!
Mary Ann
Pine Grove, CA

Your cooking ideas are great – even for a grandma who doesn't have to cook for a family who lives at home. I plan to use this to help supply food for my family who has young children. This is a way I can help them out!! Thanks for the program.
Glendia
Grand Rapids, MI

My daughter and daughter-in-law both own your cookbook. We have done some cooking together and had such fun! Besides having delicious food to eat, I've told lots of my friends about your cooking ahead idea and how wonderful it is. I've taken several of the dishes to potlucks and have gotten rave reviews!
Christina
Fresno, CA

My father-in-law has been recently widowed and wants to take care of himself. I plan to gently add your plans and freezing tips to his unending rolodex memory.
Jocelyn
Virginia Beach, VA

My husband and I are in our mid-30's and have three children. We both work full time and commute. My in-laws are elderly and I am happy that I will be able to provide frozen, healthy meals for them also.
Leticia
Ventura, CA

I gave your cookbook to my daughter, a working mom and student. I use your ideas for the days when I don't have time to cook or don't feel like cooking and do advanced meals prep for a frail relative. It's been a godsend.
