Learn how to freeze food and you can simplify your life.
Freezing food is the easiest method of preservation, keeps food
closest to it's natural texture and flavor without needing additives and
this simple technique of making meals ahead can get you eating real
food with your family again.
This site is your guide to freezing food, freezer cooking and meal planning with recipes, instructions and community.
Is your kitchen table looking lonely? If you want to have more
meals at home with your family even on days when you don’t have time to
cook I can help.
Freezing food ahead allows you to save time, money and be healthier eating homemade meals with simple from scratch recipes.
It’s a bold statement, I know, but it’s absolutely true. Let’s face it; we’re all busy, we all know we need to eat better and we all know that good food and quality meals are essential to a healthy lifestyle.
Pulling a meal out of the freezer is faster than the drive through, delivery or your favorite eat in restaurant.
Homemade meals are cheaper than eating out and since you control all the recipes and ingredients you can rest assured that your family is eating healthy food.
But how can we get home cooked meals made without quitting our jobs or going insane? My solution is to prepare homemade from scratch meals when I have the time and freeze food for later when I don‘t have the time, energy or desire to cook.
So drive past the line at the drive through, put down the phone, step away from the boxed entrees in the grocery store and get a healthy homemade dinner on the table.
