Freezer Meals

The secret to having dinner ready for your family? The freezer...

If it wasn't for my freezer, I'm not even sure what my family would be eating for dinner.

I love to cook and bake, but with two little ones running around and around and around when I'm trying to make dinner, I've pretty much given up. But we still have to eat.

Every few weeks, I go into major freezer mode. I make dinners, I double dinners, I triple dinners, and I freeze dinners. I've even done it with a friend and split the work in half. This might sound ridiculous, but I can't tell you how good I feel when I know I have six dinners pre-made in my freezer.

I know exactly what went in it, I still feel like it's fresh-ish, and I don't have any dishes. It's just the dinner making ticket!

Check out my favorite freezer recipes and add links to your favorites, it will be time for me to stock up soon!
