Thanksgiving Dinner Casserole

Thanksgiving Dinner Casserole

I really wanted to name this one something like “All-The-Flavors-Of-Thanksgiving-In-One-Bite Freezer Meal”, but that seemed like quite a mouthful (pun intended).  So let’s just go with, “Thanksgiving Dinner Casserole”, shall we? This is a very easy dish to put together, and it uses all of […]

Chicken Freezer Meal Mini Session – An Introduction to Freezer Meals!

Freezer Staples: Easy Smokey Pulled Pork

Freezer Staples: Easy Smokey Pulled Pork

Do you love smoked meats?!?  I love the deep, rich, earthy flavor that smoking lends.  I have relatives and neighbors who have turned this science into a delicate art. Sadly, I, on the other hand, do not have any meat-smoking genes in my body.  I […]

Mexican Pulled Pork (Carnitas) – Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker

Mexican Pulled Pork (Carnitas) – Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker

I love a good kitchen multitasker! I follow Alton Brown’s motto in my kitchen: “No unitaskers allowed!” If an appliance or tool can’t be used for at least two different jobs, then it has no place taking up space in my kitchen. I just don’t […]

Bruschetta Chicken Bake

Bruschetta Chicken Bake

This Bruschetta Chicken Bake is an homage to the great classic Bruschetta Chicken, but in an easy-to-make and easy-to-freeze casserole!  There’s a pretty lively debate as to whether you pronounce it like “brush” or like “brusk”, but I promise you there will be no debate […]

Baked Sausage & Cheese Rigatoni

My life hurts, people.  Seriously. I was up late last night finishing a job that was due and then couldn’t get to sleep.  I was tossing and turning all night. This morning I got up at the crack of “it’s-way-too-freakin’-early-to-be-awake” to drive middle school carpool. […]

Freezer Staples: Grilled Chicken

Freezer Staples: Grilled Chicken

Up until this week, we’ve been having a bit of a heat wave where I live.  Which is sort of normal, in a strange way, because we have weird weather around here.  Like 90 degrees one day and 50 the next.  Or having the sun […]

Freezer Cheese Sauce

Freezer Cheese Sauce

I don’t know how things go in your household, but in my house, making a child (or husband) eat their vegetables is a fate worse than death!  I mean, it’s the worst punishment a parent can give!!  My kids are picky eaters, but one thing […]

Freezer Meal: Chicken Alfredo Bake This one is for my sister. Who called me one night asking if I possibly had a chicken alfredo recipe I could share with her because she and her family were loving the alfredo bake from Costco, but they were […]

Make-Ahead Muffin Mix

Make-Ahead Muffin Mix

I love a good muffin! But I’m not a big fan of the store-bought mixes.  Or maybe they’re not a fan of me.  Because whenever I make them, the muffins are teeny tiny.  Maybe I’m doing something wrong.  But when I think delicious breakfast muffin, […]
