As a busy wife and work at home mom of a toddler on the go, I don’t always have time to create a culinary masterpiece every night. Take out can get expensive, and those prepackaged freezer meals in cardboard are usually unhealthy and tasteless.

Recently I discovered a new trend called Freezer Cooking. It allows you to cook tasty and well balanced meals for your family in very little time each night. What is Freezer Cooking exactly? The concept is to pick a day or a few days per month to “cook” for the rest of the month.

Sounds impossible right? Actually Freezer Cooking is quite simple! The idea is to cook or prep in bulk, then portion and freeze your pre made meals for those nights when you have less time, or just plain don’t feel like cooking. Sounds like a recipe for a much simpler life.

Now on to some tasty recipes!
