Make and Freeze Recipes Review

Make and Freeze Recipes: Great Foods You Can Cook, Freeze, and Use Quickly and Easily by Carolyn Stone

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was impressed with how clear and well-written this book is and how well all the recipes I tried came out, right after being cooked, and also after being frozen. I can make my own ‘TV dinners’ from scratch now using all fresh ingredients and know exactly what is in them. GREAT for people with any food allergies. Busy people can live better for less and feed their whole family well. The recipes were written very clearly for even a beginner cook, so they can get good results.

Image 1-Gather your ingredients.
Image 2–Whisk together the dry ingredients including the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Image 3-In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients including milk, egg and vegetable oil.
Image 4-Add the wet ingredients into the dry, mixing only until combined. Don’t overmix.
Image 5-Then gently fold in the blueberries
Image 6-Heat a non-stick griddle or frying pan to medium-high heat. Use a large spoon or measuring cup to scoop out about ¼ cup of batter per pancake. Pour onto the hot griddle.
Image 7-Cook until golden brown on one side, about 1 minute. Llook for bubbles on the edges to check for doneness. Using a spatula, flip over and cook for about another minute, or until golden.

Serving Suggestions:
Maple syrup is traditional, but there is also blueberry syrup and of course just a dab of butter. You can also combine butter or margarine with a generous sprinkle of cinnamon, combine, and then spread on the pancakes.
You can also top with ham and even cheese for a hearty pancake, or a breakfast biscuit with a difference if you add another one on top, for a great breakfast on the go.
A sausage pattie would also work well with this. Serve ham steak or sausage links on the side for a more hearty breakfast.

Helpful hints:
If you’re making a large number of pancakes, heat your oven to 200F degrees and place the pancakes on a cookie sheet to keep warm. When all the pancakes have been cooked, put the remainder on the stack and transfer them to a plate to serve.
