Meal Prep Magic: Time-Saving Tricks for Stress-Free Cooking

Abrams. Apr. 2023. 240p. ISBN 9781419764325. $29.99. COOKING
McCord, founder of Weelicious and the family meal kit brand One Potato and author of Smoothie Project and Weelicious Lunches, here offers a helpful new cookbook focusing on kitchen organization and healthy meal prep strategies. She breaks her ideas down into Purge, Organize, Prep, and Execute sections before delving into recipes categorized by where the main ingredients are best stored: refrigerator, freezer, or pantry. While McCord’s level of organization and preparation may be highly aspirational for many, her candid and entertaining writing style along with a variety of inviting recipes with wide appeal will likely inspire readers to try her approach. This cookbook does not go the route of batch cooking, but many of the recipes include notes on how to enjoy them later and what components can be prepped in advance. McCord also includes a guide for a month of meal prep using recipes from the book, with instructions on prepping items on Sunday for the coming week.
VERDICT Both organizing guide and cookbook, this will appeal to those who love The Home Edit and anyone looking to get homemade, family-friendly meals on the table.
