Slow Cooker Freezer Recipes Ecookbook is HERE!!

From Your Freezer To Your Family. Slow Cooker Freezer Recipes for Every Season. #fromyourfreezertoyourfamily #mamaandbabylove

The latest cookbook in the From Your Freezer To Your Family series is here: Slow Cooker Freezer Recipes For Every Season!

This cookbook has over 75 recipes!  Including the best of the best from my very first slow cooker freezer recipes cookbooks.

I have spent the last year and half creating this cookbook. All recipes have been created, tested and re-tested by me, M+BL staff, and an ARMY of moms!  These recipes are the cream of the crop, only the best of the best. This book blows my first book out of the water.

You’re not only getting more than 75 recipes, I also include information on other cooking techniques for these recipes if you have time and want to branch out from the slow cooker. Each recipe includes information on the original slow cooker freezer method, as well as instructions on browning first then slow cooker, or cooking it on the stove top or in the oven with a Dutch oven.

ALL the recipes are 100% Grain-free, Gluten-free and Dairy-Free.  They do not contain corn or legumes (both are not technically grains but extremly hard to digest and common allergens). My recipes are all Paleo, Whole 30, Weston A. Price, GAPS, and Real Food compatible meals. These recipes do use natural sweeteners in some of the recipes, but if you are eating completely sugar-free, omit the sugar and the recipe will still taste great.

This way of cooking has changed my life and enabled me to take care of myself and my family. I am so excited to share with you what was worked so well for me!

From Your Freezer To Your Family. Slow Cooker Freezer Recipes for Every Season. #fromyourfreezertoyourfamily #mamaandbabylove

I first started using my slow cooker about eight years ago. At the time, it was emotionally all I could handle. I didn’t know how to cook and I had no interest – being in the kitchen brought up painful memories of my childhood. It reminded me how much I longed to have a loving and caring mother who cooked meals for me. So, instead of really feeling and owning those emotions, I just stayed out of the kitchen and ate what was familiar and comforting—mostly junk food like potato chips, cereal, and sandwiches.

One day, I got the urge to buy a slow cooker. I figured I could stand being in the kitchen long enough to chop up some vegetables and then dump it in the slow cooker and run like hell. And lo and behold, it worked! With minimal effort, I could actually make a home-cooked meal!

But after awhile, even chopping and getting myself organized in the morning before running out the door to work became difficult. And even more difficult when my daughter Penelope arrived. When my daughter was about 4 months old, I got into bulk and freezer cooking and would do long days with a friend to make a month’s worth of food. After a couple of times of doing that, I figured there had to be a more efficient and healthier way to prepare large amounts of food.

Then I had my ah-ha moment. I decided to try chopping and assembling ingredients for several slow cooker recipes at once. Instead of cooking them and then freezing in portions, I decided to try freezing immediately after assembly and cook it later.

And again, lo and behold, it worked! I could pull out a meal from my freezer, totally frozen, dump it in my slow cooker, and have a tasty meal ready for my family by dinnertime. I felt like I had invented electricity! Both my husband and daughter ate it and loved it! I was so excited! There we were eating a perfectly healthy, grain-free, dairy-free, made from scratch meal that only took me a couple of minutes to prepare.

I shared about it on my blog, MamaAndBabyLove.com, and later it went viral on Pinterest. It was bananas! I couldn’t believe that other people were interested my idea to streamline freezer prep and slow cooking.

It’s been over three years since I started cooking this way and almost two years since my first cookbook came out. I have been floored by the massive amounts of rave reviews I have received about how this way of cooking has changed lives of moms. These are some of my favorites comments:

“I started using your recipes a few months ago when I went back to work after my son was born. I have saved so much time and energy! It is so nice to take one day every couple of weeks and freeze meals away and then the day of drop a bag in the crock pot. Instead of worrying about what I’m making when I get home at 5:30, I know that I just need to prep a side and then dinner is already done. Thank you so much!”

“We have now gotten to try all of your recipes at least once and we are huge fans! I made them all one day when I was 34 weeks pregnant and then had my daughter at 36 weeks. We (five of us) have been living on them and I still have 4 more bags to go! Looking forward to the new recipes and my next big cooking day!”

“I just ordered your cookbook and I must say, your recipes have changed my life!! I have a 6 month old son and a very busy work schedule, I love that I can come home and have a wonderful dinner (and lunches for the next day) ready for my husband and I with so little clean up. I deal with a lot of guilt about not spending as much time with my son as I would like to because of work, but now I’m able to spend so much more QUALITY time with him in the evenings. Thank you for writing this cookbook, but also thank you for giving me more time with my family!”

“Hi Stephanie! I bought your freezer/slow cooker recipe in anticipation of a huge kitchen renovation. I wanted to have lots of meals for my family ready to go into the crockpot, which is basically the only appliance we have for 4 weeks (and a microwave). I prepped a freezer-full of your recipes in the month before the start of the renovation. I’m midway through the renovation and have made at least 5 of the recipes already – they are great! So thank you!!!!”

“I just have to tell you, we purchased your cookbook and have loved everything in it. My husband is thrilled that they are not only healthy, but seasoned perfectly. All I did was follow your instructions! Thanks!”

But every so often, I would get an email or comment from a mom who was distraught because the recipes didn’t work for her and didn’t turn out flavorful enough. While those comments have been rare, they haunt me and break my heart. I have always been clear that I am not chef, I am simply sharing an idea that works for me and my family. I am so passionate about this way of cooking because it gives me and other moms more time to themselves—time they can spend taking care of themselves and working on their personal growth and healing journeys— the real mission of Mama and Baby Love. So, for over a year, I poured myself into testing and tweaking recipes, and had an army of moms re-test my recipes to make sure my explanations were clear so that all moms have the same success I do with these recipes.

This book explains in more depth, and much more clearly, exactly how I have success with this way of cooking. How to get a flavorful, perfect slow cooker meal EVERY TIME. How to make it work for your family. When you get the cookbook, be sure to read the entire assembly section before starting – vital information is in there. I hope that, as they have for me and thousands of other moms, these recipes fill your home with warmth, love, nutrition, and, best of all, delicious food. I am excited for you to begin feeding yourself and your family healthy meals with ease!

    Before I buy it I wanted to know if I have to buy it from my iPhone if I want it on my phone. Or can I buy it from my computer and then somehow access on my iPhone? Thanks!

    I just read all of this and feel this is just what my family needs. We are a mess when it comes to dinner. I get home at 5pm and feed the kids something healthy. But eat my dinner at 9pm. I try to eat vegan and gluten free. But it is just breaking my family big time!!! We never eat as a family. I don’t have a medical condition that requires me to eat that way so I think I am going to read the book Nourishing Traditions and reconsider my eating habits for the sake of my family.

    Hopefully the eCookbook will help!

It hasn’t shown up in an Ejunkie email or anywhere. It did show up on our papal account.. Im just lost as to where it went from there! I can’t wait to read it and if I must repurchase let me know!

    I would love to see a table of contents… the thing that is keeping me from buying this is that I don’t know if I’m going to get twelve recipes for beef, which I won’t ever cook. How many are chicken? How many are vegetarian? What are the proportions of vegetable to meat?

    • Stephanie

    • Stephanie

    • Stephanie

      Absolutely. I like to refreeze them in smaller individual portions, for lunches or nights when I am home alone and don’t want to make a family sized meal.
