Freezer Cooking Planning: A Detailed Approach

Having a plan is half the work of any project. Good planning can ensure that you have what you need when you need it, thus preventing delays and frustration.

And having a good freezer cooking plan is essential.

Chocolate Butterhorns – Perfect for Freezing, Perfect for Anytime

So, my friend Crystal has this Butterhorn Recipe that is a great make-ahead recipe. The rolls freeze, thaw, rise, and bake deliciously. I made them during last month’s freezer cooking, and our family has enjoyed them immensely. If you make them just as Crystal directs, you will be quite pleased.

However, since I am a little bit lazy scared of my Kitchenaid Mixer AND a little bit of a sweet tooth, I decided to tweak the recipe a little bit. I adapted the dough recipe to fit a standard bread machine AND I added chocolate to the finished product.

Cheesecakes, Chocolate Chip Banana Bread, and Cinnamon Rolls for the Freezer

I’m ready to call it a day, folks. I didn’t think doing side dishes and baked goods would be as difficult as it was. But, part of that was that I aimed a little too high for fear I would shoot too low. Need to work on my aim next month, and I’m definitely getting […]

Recipes: Taco Meat and Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

The Freezer cooking continues! This morning I set a big pot of beans to get cooking in my crockpot. I love to cook up a lot of pinto beans at one time to use in chimichangas, burritos and beans and rice throughout the month. I portion it out into 2 cup servings which seems to […]

Foccacia, Butterhorns, Granola, and My Own Mixes

My freezer cooking this time ’round is kind of all over the place as I do it in little fits and spurts. It’s been a weird week all around, trying to do school while the rest of the neighborhood has Spring Break. Makes for not very motivated students. Not a wise choice on the teacher’s […]
