I'm Melissa Hochman, and I'm really good at the microwave. I don’t cook. I don’t bake. And I pre-heat only when absolutely necessary.
Frozen Foodie is focused on test driving frozen food so you don't have to. I got the idea in college when my frozen meal obsession was juxtaposed by the copious amounts of fresh food my roommate, Arielle, would whip up. She proclaimed I had an 87% share of the freezer. And she was right.
So if you want a real talk knowledge drop on pretty things that spin on power levels of 8, you're at the right place.
In each post, I’ll give you my opinion on everything from:
Lip-smackability (how good it tastes) - 0-10
Hunger Pains (does the “meal” actually fill you up?) - 0 -10
Nutritional Value (But I'm by no means a nutrtionist.. so this will probably just be a snapshot of the Nutrition Facts)
Facebook Test (is it as pretty on the package as it is in person?) - 0-10
And depending on the product, I’ll conduct one or more of the following:
Preparation Challenge (to microwave or to pre-heat?)
Brand competition (two brands, same product)
The Leftover Test (how good is it the next day?)
Most products will come from Trader Joe’s or ACME/Foodtown
May your freezer always be stocked, your microwave always powered to high, and your browser bookmarked to FF.
