My review: I was given a copy of “The Make-ahead Kitchen” by Annalise Thomas in exchange for an honest review. I love cookbooks and was thrilled to get a copy of this one. Recently I have been doing some freezer meals and trying to save some prep and cooking time. This cookbook fit the bill. Though it isn’t all freezer meals that you put in a bag and pull out later, there are recipes that freeze well, some you make the night before, and some that are just plain time saving. The recipes are easy to follow, the ingredients are normal pantry items, and the pictures are enticing. The author gives her tricks of the trade and even explains her measuring methods.
About the Author: With 4 kids, a large extended family, and a passion for feeding others, Annalise is no stranger to finding ways to simplify life in the kitchen. There is nothing that makes her happier than hearing from someone who was once intimidated in the kitchen “I made this! It was great, and now I’m feeling more confident in trying more homemade recipes!”
Annalise spends her time in the kitchen and exploring the beautiful Olympic Peninsula of Washington, where she lives, with her family. If you want to find her, look in her kitchen, or at one of the many beautiful beaches nearby watching her children play and combing for beach glass!
