In past blogs I've written about Team Up cooking. Usually I'm refering to a small group of friend who pick a few recipes, have fun cooking together and are able to stock their freezer with future dinners.  Team Up cooking is an excellent way to save time and money.

I wanted to take the opportuntiy to introduce to Allrecipe readers the Team Up BIG or Co-Op idea. These ladies attend my church.

Team Up BIG - Freezer Cooking Co-Op

Team Up Co-Op is a fun way to assemble meals with many cooks. Team Up BIG is different from the original Team Up to Tackle Dinner method in that a Co-Op empowers a Team Captian. A Team Captians plans, shops, and oversees the Teaming Up event. In exchange for her efforts the Team Co-Op cooks pay for her share of the food costs. Each participant  prepares their own meat and brings it to the Team Up event. All cooks bring a cooler with ice to take home their freezer meals. Everyone wins!

You annoy shouldn'y be touting your business here.

By the way, if I'm wrong, and this is not a Business, I apologize. I guess you or your website needs to explain it a tad better.

Sorry I annoy you. I don't have a business...I'm not making any money, in fact it cost me money to have a web-site. The reason it's called a business on facebook is that's the only way to get a space for a group of cooks to be able to talk. Sorry for being annoying, but I do hope the site is helpful to those who want to cook with friends.

Dinnercoach, Thank you for your valuable information lesson in humility. You handled CindyLepp with much more grace than I would have.

Dinnercoach, I love your concept of freezer cooking and doing it as a team. I think it is wonderful that you all get together and create meals. Everyone in your photo looks so pleased. It's hard to find a great group of women who all enjoy the same thing and more importantly one another's company. Keep up the good work. And don't mind those that can't mind their manners. Acceptance is difficult for some people, but perhaps CindyLepp was just having a bad day. Hopefully your explanation will clear things up with her.

I sincerely apologize to you Dinner Coach (and Mrs. C) wasn't meaning to be rude, truly not, but I now understand the concept of your website better. I just get irritated but some who taute their websites and never truly are a part of AR....Please accept my apology...
