Healthy, delicious meals have never been easier! The slow cooker, pressure cooker, and Instant Pot® meet freezer cooking in this all-new, beautifully photographed, and rigorously tested cookbook.
It’s dinnertime, and yet again, you’re behind. The kids are cranky; the fridge is empty; the kitchen is a mess. Sound familiar? That was every night at the houses of popular bloggers and cookbook authors Polly Conner and Rachel Tiemeyer until they discovered freezer cooking. And once they realized that freezer meals could be made even easier with the hands-free magic of the Instant Pot or slow cooker, dinnertime drama became a thing of the past.
From Peanut Butter Cup Steel Cut Oats to Fiesta Lime Chicken Bowls to French Dip Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, every recipe is doable and made with recognizable, whole food ingredients. You’ll learn how to prep and freeze bright, flavorful food that can be easily dropped in the slow cooker in the morning or quickly cooked in the Instant Pot after a long day. So, no matter what time crunch you’re in, you’re never more than a few minutes away from a hot, homemade meal. 
Polly and Rachel have once again shown us that it’s possible to gather around the table everyday with loved ones over a wholesome meal together.
