Frozen Meals are Frozen Assets.

This arcitle, written by Sharon Haddock, was in the Mormon Times yesterday.  Included are a few of my all time favorite recipes.  Thank you Sharon for writing such an incredible article highlighting my ideas on how to save time and money with freezer meals.

ELWOOD, Utah — Jenny Ahlstrom Stanger didn’t become a freezer-meal expert overnight.

The Mormon mom and cookbook author learned the secrets of good freezing one dish at a time.

Today, she has 207 foolproof, freezer recipes to share — healthy recipes that can save a busy wife and mother not only time but dollars as well (up to $300 per month for the average family).

Skillet Nachos and Coconut Chocolate-Chip Cookies.

Tonight was one of those nights that by 5:30pm, I was too tired to walk, fold the clean laundry or make dinner.  Luckily, my freezer was stocked with a bag of cooked shredded pork and a log of coconut chip cookie dough.

Making Your Own Frozen Pizza

Our favorite meal of all time is pizza!  It takes time to make  pizza from scratch, so why not make 4-5 pizzas at once, bake one for dinner and place the other four in your freezer to serve later?  My hero Crystal Godfrey, with and I got together a few months ago to make a video on how to make  frozen pizza.  What a privilege it was to be with her for a few hours in her kitchen!

Stock your freezer with a Honey Glazed Spiral Ham

What I love even more then a  turkey at Thanksgiving dinner is a savory, honey-glazed, spiral cut ham.  This ham comes pre-sliced (and often with the glaze) so all you have to do is bake it and slice it into large pieces to enjoy right away and stock  in your freezer for later.   One 8-10 lb ham will give you 15-20 servings!

Pizza and Chicken Pot Pie

I had the amazing opportunity to be on Good Things Utah twice in the past two weeks!  It won’t be until tonight that I can get the two videos on my site, but you can click here to view the clips for now.
