WHAT is 30 Day Gourmet?

We write great freezer cookbooks!
Our cookbooks will teach you how to be successful at this “freezer cooking” task. All ten 30 Day Gourmet cookbooks contain easy, delicious, “freezer worthy” recipes. Recipes are also multiplied out (assembling in multiples saves a bunch of time) and include nutritional information.

We provide an online community for freezer cooks.
Here at www.30daygourmet.com, you can access lots more recipes for free, and chat with other freezer cooks on our 30 Day Gourmet Facebook® page and our Pinterest page. It’s a great way to have your questions answered and to stay motivated.

We keep in touch.
Don’t you hate it when you buy a book and have no way to contact the author? We do too. That’s why we’re “here for you”. 30 Day Gourmet keeps in touch through our monthly newsletters, our and our facebook posts and photos. Of course, you can always email us too. If you have a question, we will answer it.

WHO is 30 Day Gourmet?
NanciNanci is the President of 30 Day Gourmet, Inc. and an original founder of the company. She is a graduate of Cedarville University with a BA in English Education and works as a high school English teacher. Nanci and her husband have four children and reside near Indianapolis, Indiana.

Meet Nanci: When I discovered freezer cooking in 1993, I had been married for 14 years and was the mother of four children ages 8, 5, 3 and 1 month. I was also a “crisis cook” who didn’t think about dinner until the last possible moment. We ate fast food dinners. We ate cereal dinners. We ate my husband’s “breakfast for supper” specials. And we ate a lot of hot dogs and boxed macaroni and cheese dinners. Sound familiar?

In my early days of freezer cooking, I tackled the then daunting task with a good friend. Together, through trial and more than a few errors, we figured this thing out. In the beginning, we got together once a month and assembled 25-30 entrées for each of us. After a few years, we began cooking every three months. Our 2-day cooking marathons netted us each about 75 freezer meals. As our family sizes, schedules and tastes changed, we found that the “system” we had developed was adaptable enough to “flex” along with us.

Fast forward to today. I am now a high school English teacher with two children on their own, one in college, and only one still at home. I no longer have long cooking marathons but instead do mini-sessions every 3-4 weeks. Freezer cooking is still the best way I have found to feed my family great home-cooked food without having to stress over the “dinner chore”.

Meet Carol: Our family was introduced to 30 Day Gourmet in 1999 by my sister-in-law. When visiting her house, I saw the Meal Inventory Worksheet posted on her refrigerator and asked her about the system. At the time, I was working full time and found it difficult to find the time to put a delicious and nutritious meal on the table every night. Our family jumped in gung-ho and cooked for 30 days the first time out! We realized that it saved us time and money but I soon found out it helped me in many other ways. It allowed me to spend more time with my family and less in the kitchen. Planning meals in advance also helped me take control of our food purchases.

I left the workforce in 2001 to become a stay at home mom. This move forced our family to evaluate our food expenses. This was the start of our cooking based on “What’s on Sale”. It was also the beginning of what would eventually become Freezer Lunches To Go as we learned how to create a freezer cooking alternative to school lunches.

Today, I work full time as a contract programmer and for 30 Day Gourmet editing and formatting ebooks, writing newsletters, and answering questions from fellow freezer cooks. My three  children are all living on their own. I now cook alone (or sometimes with my husband) based on “What’s on Sale” and enjoy creating new freezer cooking recipes to share on our web site.
