As someone who doesn’t cook, nor has much knowledge about food preparation or cooking techniques, but is ready to embrace a vegetarian lifestyle, this book has become an invaluable resource for me! The meal-planning ideas for make-ahead meals, as well as ways to store food and meals in a healthy and safe way, have made the whole process of becoming vegetarian far less daunting for me, And each of the recipes I’ve tried so far have been excellent…its like Randy Graham has read my ‘culinary mind’ when writing this book…I cannot recommend it highly enough!                                                     — Linda K.

Being a vegetarian can sometimes be a challenge when trying to find interesting meals to prepare. I have long admired Randy Graham and his cooking skills and I am so grateful to have this Ojai Valley Make Ahead Cookbook for inspiration. Following Randy’s easy instructions for 52 delicious vegetarian recipes should keep me serving healthy meals. Being a morning person, I love that his recipes can be made ahead and will hold well. He even tells you which ones will freeze well and which ones can be refrigerated. Meal planning and shopping is made easy when you just spend a few minutes looking through the recipes and deciding what you want to eat in the upcoming week. Thank you Randy for sharing your expertise!!                                                                                         — M. Morris

As the wife of a retired chef cookbooks have been our lives for over 30 years! This delightful new cookbook by Chef Randy Graham is a MUST for anyone. The idea is inspired. Making 3 or 4 (or more) meals when you have the time and either freezing or refrigerating is a great concept. That way on those busy days or days when you just don’t feel like cooking you have a home cooked meal waiting in your frig or freezer. I only wish I had this book when my kids were little. Randy’s writing style is comfortable and easy to understand. His menu descriptions make you want to try everything in this book. While all the recipes are vegetarian they are hearty and satisfying. I recommend this book to anybody who either cooks or eats.                                                                — Dianne F.

Ojai valley make ahead cookbook is wonderful! The recipes are easy to follow and unique. There is something for everybody in this cookbook. The description of every recipe makes your stomach growl and jaws water. It perfectly combines healthy and hearty recipes with the ease and convenience of make ahead meals! I recommend this book to anyone looking to add a few(52!) Great recipes to their repertoire!       — Melani J.

I love Randy’s “Make-Ahead” recipes in this book. I had it one day and already made a mac n cheese. The directions were precise and ingredients simple. I like recipes that are not convoluted with so many items that you end up spending so much money making sure you have everything needed to make it. The prep was easy and the end result was super yummy!! I would recommend this book to everyone who cooks at home!! — Star M.

I find the concept of Make Ahead meals very appealing. Many of Randy’s recipes have ingredients that I usually have on hand. Robin’s Tortilla Soup has a fresh bright flavor that is really satisfying. The Eggplant Parmigiano-Reggiano is cheesy and a real comfort food. This is a very user friendly cookbook.                                             —  Amazon Customer
