February Freezer Cooking (With Kids)

Freezer cooking, or bulk cooking, can be a great way to economize on time, money, and resources. And the kids can help cook! As I mentioned last week, I’m on a mission to make my boys a little more independent in the kitchen. So, it only made sense to include them in the freezer cooking […]

Join the Freezer Cooking Craze!

I love my freezer! I’m not ashamed to say it. I remember years ago my younger sister turned up her nose at the idea of making food ahead of time and freezing it. Truth be told, I think she just had bad memories from our childhood when our parents or grandmothers stockpiled food that didn’t […]
