A Tool of the Trade

No Guesswork Cooking by Kim Cahill is a favorite in our home, a handy tool, and a great help. Each recipe comes with family sized calculations as well as calculations for serving large parties (50+). Here's today's cooking adventure:

So I will go ahead and assume you aren't on the Atkins diet!!!

Halterman Clan-
"Just say no to Atkins" is my motto. Actually, I did Atkins years ago and it worked really well. In fact too well for me. I was being a diet helper and didn't need to do it.
I actually like what Lindora offers through their Lean For Life program. It works really well and you don't ever have kyto-lows. I followed their system (once again as a diet helper for a couple different people) and am really pleased with it.

Handy indeed and true to it's name!

My goodness!! What all did you make? It all looks like the same basic dough, is it? Have you evercooked with something like Dinners in the Freezer system? I would like to do something like that, but I don't have much freezer space.

Pizza crusts, regular breads, ficocia bread, cinnamon bread. I think that covers it. It's all the same recipe. It was a little too much for our 6 qt. Bosch. But it came out okay in the end. I like cooking this way and stocking the freezer.

I have the book but I haven't tried (read) it yet. As far as not having enough freezer space you might consider trying what many Texans have done. Put a freezer on the front porch. Okay maybe not.
