Once A Month Cooking – Holiday Style

tricia once a month mom My sweet friend, Tricia, is a phenomenal “foodie”.  She specializes in Once a Month Cooking or Freezer Cooking, by planning ahead so she can have easy to prepare meals on hand all month long. It’s a superb idea – and one of these days I’m going to take the plunge and do an entire month’s of cooking in a day (or two).

With the holidays approaching, making holiday helpings ahead of time makes practical sense.  This way you can focus your attention on the more intense holiday foods, cleaning, shopping, etc. When Tricia announced that she was going to do a Once A Month Cooking Holiday Ebook, I couldn’t wait to help her promote it!

I love how she’s incorporated the classics and few new tastes as well.

Here’s a sampling of some of the recipes contained in the Holiday ECookbook*:

  • Veggie Pizza
  • Pumpkin Cheeseball
  • Scalloped Corn
  • Freezer Mashed Potatoes
  • Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes
  • Slow Cooker Stuffing
  • Make Ahead Butterhorn Rolls
  • Turkey Baste
  • Cranberry Mustard Ham Glaze
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Caramel Apple Pie Trifle

Oh. My. Yum! On top of the recipes the ECookbook contains grocery lists, instructions, recipe cards, photographs, step by step visuals, and labels. It’s also customizable for a serving size of 8 or 16.

Tricia is offering the readers of 4tunate a special discounted price of $5.99 through November 1st. Use the code: OAMM40 at checkout. (It will normally sell for $9.99.) And she’s also generously allowing me to give one away!

    Already a fan on Facebook! I would love to have a cookbook – some girlfriends and I have talked about getting together to cook up meals for a few months.

    Favorite holiday dish would definitely be the desserts – pumkin pie (with Cool Whip!), Christmas cookies including my grandmother’s molasses cookies and Mexican wedding cake cookies.

    I don’t do true OAMC but I do try to double or triple the batch and put 1 or 2 into the freezer everytime I make a dinner that freezes well. Such a help to have easy meals to pull out of the freezer on crazy days. Works for me.

    This would be great, Jen! I have been thinking about trying this out! I can’t wait for the holidays – I am a HUGE Christmas cookie maker – iced sugar, peppermint candy canes, “Hershey Kiss” cookies – you name it! Love it! I will “fan” the other two sites, if I haven’t already!

    Hi, my favorite holiday dish is Cranberry Salad. Ours is packed with nuts–walnuts or pecans, celery, and is a vivid red with a bite from the cranberries. We serve it with a zesty lemon dressing. It is a little healthier than some of the other traditional dishes. 🙂

    I love to cook for the holidays! I love making the turkey, potatoes, rolls, but what I like best is baking cookies, cookies, and more cookies. I just try not to eat any!

    My favorite holiday dish is sweet potato casserole, made light and fluffy with egg whites then topped with a butter, sugar, pecan, and flour topping. Yummy!
