There was a reason it became the flagship recipe for FBC. It was easy, quick to pack, filled you up and tasted good. It also signified something else – only a few days later we took www.freezerbagcooking.com live. It was over Thanksgiving Weekend in 2004. It has been fun – from some of the first recipes have come 100’s more each year. The book, the cozy all came out of that one lunch all those years ago.
