Freezer Cooking

Easy Freezer Bacon & Blue Cheese Burgers

Image

Burgers are one of our spring and summertime staples, but I have to admit that we usually opt for the pre-made burgers rather than take the time to make our own.  Yes, I know they are more expensive, but in this case, convenience almost always wins out over cost. Not anymore! Not only are these flavor-packed [...]

Creamy Mushroom Pork Chops

Image

Ready for another easy-to-make, crockpot friendly freezer recipe? Pork chops in the crockpot can be slightly more challenging than chicken or beef, simply because it is easier to overcook them, which can make them dry and tough.  This delicious creamy mushroom sauce adds lots of flavor and moisture, but it is also important to cook them just enough. [...]

Kale & White Bean Soup with Sausage

Image

This simple, delicious, freezer-friendly soup recipe was inspired by the fresh kale, carrots, and parsley I harvested a few weeks ago, and it is JAM-PACKED with flavor!  Both my kids and husband couldn't get enough, and I know this is one I will be making all the time. As an aside, I can't even tell you how [...]

Freezer to Crockpot Chicken Fajitas

Easy Slow-Cooked Split Pea Soup

Image

It seriously does not get ANY easier than this delicious, hearty split pea soup.  My family loves it so much that we have started buying whole spiral-cut hams on a regular basis just so we can make it more often!  It actually ends up being a pretty good value, though, since an eight pound ham will provide [...]

It is my sincere belief that you can never have too many foolproof chicken recipes up your sleeve.  This flavor-packed simple cranberry chicken is another favorite "cheater" freezer recipe--easy, delicious, practically mess-free, and freezer + crock pot friendly.  What more do you need? To make it as part of a freezer cooking day, just split the sauce & [...]

Easy Freezer Balsamic Roast Beef

Image

This may sound a little odd coming from a vegetarian, but pot roast is hands down my favorite meal to make!  Not only is it ridiculously easy and completely foolproof, not to mention a one-pot slow cooker meal that you can set and forget, but it always gets RAVE reviews.  As in not just "oh this [...]

Cheesy Chicken & Rice Casserole

Chicken & rice casserole is one of our family staples, but in my quest to develop a whole binder full of no-cook freezer meals, I decided to take on the challenge of creating a freezer friendly version.  I'll be honest, it took a lot of trial and error to get it right, but the final [...]

Easy Freezer Ham & Bean Soup
