Wrapping Up a Month of Freezer Cooking

If you are looking for freezer cooking ideas, check out this collection for 31 days of delicious, homemade recipes - all that freeze great!

Whew! I did it. It’s been a busy month – and a busy month of freezer cooking. This was the first time I have ever attempted such an ambitious project. I practiced the “Bake Once – Eat Twice” philosophy so doubled my recipes this month. I cooked two of the same meals – one that we ate that night and one (or more) that made its way to the freezer. My freezer is brimming as a result! Take a look.

What is in my freezer after a month of freezer cooking? Note that I made double meals of my recipes – without going over my monthly grocery budget! It is indeed possible. In addition to eating well this month, my freezer is full!

As a recap, here are all the recipes that I shared in this freezer cooking series.

I discovered some new tricks as I shared freezer recipes with you. I rediscovered some old favorites and found new favorites as well. I also discovered that Pinterest is hopping with those who are interested in crock pot applesauce! It’s one of my new favorite recipes, so I’m happy others are enjoying it as well.

What’s your favorite freezer cooking recipe? I’d love to hear!
