10 Meals in 1h

Welcome to my most exciting section ever! Once you start meal planning and batch cooking this way you will never look back.

10 meals in 1 hour is the ultimate Batch Lady™ experience where I show you how to cook 10 family meals for the freezer in just 1 hour. I do my batch cooking on a Sunday afternoon, one Sunday with beef recipes, the next with chicken and the next with fish. If you follow my method you will always have a variety of home-cooked, healthy, portion-controlled and budget-friendly meals to choose from.

The Batch Lady™ is all about saving time, money and waste, by using similar ingredients together and only buying what you need. I’d suggest starting with the beef section if batch cooking is new to you. Or if you want to try my method out on a smaller scale, you can choose any one of the recipes on my website and simply double the ingredients. It’s a good stepping stone to work at before starting with 10 meals while still getting plenty of short cut tips and hints.

For 10 meals in 1 hour, start with the shopping list I provide, it gives you the exact quantities needed for your 10 family meals for 4 people, making double quantities of 5 different recipes. Then follow my step by step guide to multi-task your way through the recipes, so as one thing is simmering on the hob you can go ahead and make another meal.

[You’ll find throughout my website that some meals are cooked before going into the freezer while others can be prepared and frozen raw, ready to simply defrost and pop in the oven when needed.]
