Easy Freezer Meatballs

This easy freezer meatballs recipe is easy, economical, delicious and can be made with either ground turkey, ground beef, or a mix of both.

Perfectly prepared in bulk batches, tastes better than store-bought, and always there for you when life gets busy.

Million Dollar Casserole

Don’t worry. This one doesn’t cost a million bucks…it just tastes like it!

To make it freezer friendly: Treat it just like a lasagna: Assemble, wrap tightly, freeze immediately. Don’t bother refrigerating first – as it freezes, the flavors will marry.

When you’re ready to bake, cover the top with a sheet of tented foil and bake for 45 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for an additional 20 minutes.

Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili

Looking for a new meatless meal idea?  This chili sounds delicious!  Especially for Cincinnati area folks who have no problem with a little chocolate in their chili.  (Seriously, try it.)

Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole

There’s something about the chicken bacon ranch combination that makes my mouth water every time!

To make this one freezer friendly (so easy): Assemble it the same way, and freeze right in the casserole dish. You can bake it from frozen, but it will cook more evenly if you let it thaw in the fridge first.

You may need to give it a good stir after baking, or midway through.

(Use spinach or broccoli…or skip the green stuff if the kids won’t eat it, and serve fresh veggies on the side instead.)

Versatile Make Ahead Breakfast Burritos

There are so many options here, you’re bound to have these ingredients on hand!

(Bonus…breakfast is done before your coffee.)

Honey Dijon Chicken

For the Mama desperately looking for freezer meals that don’t have tomatoes in the recipe, daggonit.

(That used to be me, too! I usually end up replacing diced tomatoes with tomato sauce since they don’t seem to object to that.)

This looks perfect for an overcast, chilly day.

Honey Dijon Chicken from Erica’s Recipes

Crock Pot Ham and Beans

Could this be the perfect cold weather food?

Cool the recipe, then dump into a big freezer bag, or freezer container.  Thaw and heat to serve.
