    I like that these recipes can be used for either a crock pot or an instant pot; even though I don't own an instant pot. The cookbook is laid out nicely. Beginning with a simple Introduction of Basics and Equipment, followed by chapters of Recipes, and ending with helpful hints of Charts and Cooking Times. All of the recipes are accompanied by pictures, but they don't have nutritional information. Most of the recipes use ingredients found stocked in most kitchens.

There are many recipes in this cookbook I wanted to try, but only had the opportunity to fix two for the family before I had to return the book to the library: Honey Bourbon Chicken and Maple-Glazed Pork Loin. Even though I didn't have the bourbon for the chicken recipe, still a delish dish! The Maple-Glazed Pork Loin was so tender. What little left-overs we had of the pork loin, I sliced thin and put in the freezer for future sandwiches. I'll definitely be putting this one on the keeper shelf!

    Raise your hand if you've ever forgotten to thaw something for supper, only to realize too late that the evening's plan was spoiled... This book is the answer. Their recipes are delicious, and you can literally take them from your freezer to your electric pressure cooker WITHOUT THAWING and have supper on the table on time!

    Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the publisher, Rodale Books of Penguin Random House. My opinion of this book is my own. This cookbook is great for those that like to cook with both a slow cooker and an instant pot (pressure cooker). Not every recipe in the book has a picture of the completed dish which is a bit disappointing. It is said that we first visually "eat with our eyes", so when deciding what to cook for dinner I like to see a photo of the end result.

This cookbook is great for those that like to cook with both a slow cooker and an instant pot (pressure cooker). Not every recipe in the book has a picture of the completed dish which is a bit disappointing. It is said that we first visually "eat with our eyes", so when deciding what to cook for dinner I like to see a photo of the end result. This helps to gauge whether or not I'm interested in attempting the recipe and, if I do decide to make it, whether or not I'm on the right track in terms of cooking the dish correctly based solely on how close my dish compares to the original authors. Overall, this is a good cookbook in terms of recipes. The ingredient lists use "real" food for the most part, there is the occasional "jar of whatever" recommendation that can easily be substituted with a homemade version instead. Out of all of the recipes, I would attempt to make about 15 of them for my family. This isn't a great selection but also isn't terrible at the same time. For those looking to change up their dinner routine, or learn to cook more with their slow cooker or instant pot this cookbook would be a great start on that food adventure.

From Freezer to Cooker is a great handbook for the on-the-go household, teaching straightforward, kid-friendly classics with a twist of sophistication. To anyone who has spent time trying to figure out how best to adapt a favorite recipe for the Instant Pot, this cookbook has done the work for you by offering two sets of instructions for a recipe that would usually be made in traditional ways—one for the slow cooker and one for the Instant Pot. The authors have prioritized taste as well as ease, with 500 recipe testers assisting with recipe selection. They also give tips on freezing, thawing, etc. This was a library book, and I haven’t had a chance yet to make any of the recipes. I own an Instant Pot, but haven’t figured out how to fit it into my meal planning—the admin of using and washing it seems slightly steeper than making one of my familiar recipes the long way. :) This cookbook has brought me closest (so far) to figuring out how to find a place for the Instant Pot in my kitchen routine.

    Practical concept for a cookbook: every recipe is meant for your pressure cooker or slow cooker, with indications for where to stop prep and freeze for later. It would be easy to double the recipes and eat half now, and freeze the other half. Full color photos for every recipe. Most of the recipes are necessarily "shredded" or "pulled" meat with either a tomato, balsamic, Mexican, or Asian flavor profile. Some recipes are a bit of a stretch--why make meatballs in a pressure cooker??

Or the salads are like Asian Chop Salad *with pressure cooker chicken.* But I am thankful for lots of gluten free options--there is even a list of gf recipes in the back, and it would be easy to adapt others as well.

    The tips and tricks section in the front of the book along with the breakfast section are the reason it's getting 3 stars, the rest of the book was very bland. There were no stand-out recipes, just the same things you find in every other book. The photos were nice, but they were of people preparing the dishes more than they were of the actual finished meal. The recipes also called for many ingredients, which takes away from the whole simplicity idea of the book. Overall, one you can skip when lo The tips and tricks section in the front of the book along with the breakfast section are the reason it's getting 3 stars, the rest of the book was very bland.

    Several recipes that look worth trying. I'm grateful that it has slow-cooker information as well as instant pot, since I don't have the latter. Freezer meals are always a plus and when I find a cookbook that I like from the library I then can't find it again. Several recipes that look worth trying.

    I can’t wait to get my Instant Pot (belated birthday present) and start trying the recipes in this book!! They do a fantastic job of putting together recipes that are easy, healthy, whole foods based, AND family friendly... and freezer friendly!! And the photographs are beautiful!

    Not really a freezer meal cookbook but a cookbook with freezer option.

    For those in a busy time of life and/or with a many mouths to feed, this is a great addition to one’s cookbook collection. The layout of this cookbook is great because every recipe can be made in the crockpot or instant pot, plus the authors tell you exactly when and how to freeze the meal for later.There are gluten and dairy free recipes and vegetarian ones. Ingredients are, for the most part, easy to find and healthy choices.For a brunch, there are a number of great recipes for a crowd.
