Neat, it’s Greek!

I am addicted to Greek yogurt.  It is so thick and creamy and similar to custard.  Greek yogurt has double the protein, is lower in calories and sodium then traditional yogurt and is filled with probiotics, calcium, riboflavin, vitamin B6 and B12.    Now that I’ve tasted the good stuff, I can’t eat Yoplait and Dannon yogurt anymore. Traditional brands (even the lite versions) taste more like a cup of melted ice cream to me then yogurt.    It is packed with so much sugar (often over 30 grams of sugar per serving.)

Book edits to date

There are a few errors in the latest printing of Fabulous Freezer Meals.  Please note the changes and accept my apology for the few mistakes that made it past me, editors and the publisher.   We will correct these mistakes in the next printing.



I recently purchased the Fabulous Freezer Meals book and it seems the first paragraph of instructions for the Chicken Pot Pie recipe is completely missing. I was hoping to find an errata section for the book on this site but there is none. If the missing set of instructions could be provided, that would be great. Thanks.

Freezer Meal Basic Training


Happy New Year!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday.  I apologize it has been awhile since my last post.  We played until we dropped every day of the vacation.  My girls received a lot of art supplies for Christmas and my husband bought me an electric back massager.  Between making crafts, playing in the snow, eating chocolate and enjoying back rubs, life has been pretty busy around here.

I don’t know about you, but my freezer is EMPTY! It is time to re-stock. I’ve been busy today slicing up marinated steak strips for future meals, and  I hope to continue stocking my freezer with cooked rice, meat balls, pot stickers and Chicken Cordon Bleu.  I had some time to experiment over the break with some new recipes and I can’t wait to share them with you over the next couple of weeks!

A few months ago I presented to a group of women in Logan, UT how to get started with making freezer meals.  Around 60 women attended and with the help of a few other women, the evening was put together with ease and was a huge success.   I’ve had the opportunity to teach freezer meal basic training many times and I’ve  put together a list of  basic tips and recipes I use when I teach. 

 If you are planning on getting started this year with making freezer meals or would like to spread the word about how great it is to have your freezer stocked, feel free to use this Freezer Meal  Basic Training. 

Easy Raspberry Jam

Raspberry  jam is like a dessert at our house and I want to show you how easy it is to make.   It really is as simple as making instant pudding!  Freezer jam can be made from fresh or frozen berries, so stock up when berries are on sale or freeze your extra fruit.   I have switched to use Ball Pectin instead of MCP Pectin.  Ball Pectin only takes 3 minutes to stir, 1 1/2 cups of sugar and 30 minutes to sit on your counter and you are DONE.   Now that is easy!

Pizza Muffins

The Pizza muffins shown here have a cute tiger face punched out of seaweed sheet with a  craft punch.  Aren’t they cute?!   I haven’t been able to find seaweed sheets anywhere so I use fresh spinach instead.
