The pizza dough recipe works brilliantly and is great for when little ones have their friends around. The mix and match muffins are brilliant as its quick and they freeze well - ideal for lumchboxes.
Overall, as a busy Mum I would sincerely recommend this book!

***Update*** so - 5 hours and 18 dinners prepped and either in the freezer or chilling before being frozen. I'd say that was time well spent. Spent 90 minutes selecting recipes and creating the full ingredient list and comparing that to our pantry/fridge/freezer to get a complete shopping list... then 45 minutes in Winco gathering all the items needed on Saturday. Sunday, I spent 5 hours in the kitchen and knocked out 18 dishes! My freezer is filled and dinners (well, at least the main dishes) are ready to go!
The remaining recipes are pretty basic/mix and match. For example, there will be recipes for different kinds of pizza using the same crust, enchiladas, etc. There are also recipes for meat that you cook in the crockpot and shred for later. There are about 49 recipes for breads/desserts. The main reason I use freezer cooking is for dinnertime, but perhaps other families are different. While chopping and freezing ingredients ahead of time saves some time in the kitchen, a lot of the recipes need a lot of prep after thawing. That defeats the purpose for me. And though it claims not to use condensed soup like our mothers cooked with, there are recipes using a homemade cream of celery soup. There are maybe two recipes in here that I would use, and if it didn't cost half as much as the book to send back I would. The cookbooks I really like for freezing are Fix, Freeze, Feast and You've Got It Made. The health content of the recipes is similar and there is a lot more variety to work with.
