Freezer Cooking Week

The month of May and beginning of June are a total blur. I have finally recovered from all the end of the school year recitals, concerts, evaluations, contests and the big home improvement projects we tackled (more on those to come :)). Needless to say, I did not do much cooking during that time and my freezer was getting pretty empty.

This time, my freezer cooking session was split up over several days. I just […]

March Freezer Cooking – Part 2

Tomato-Ricotta Spaghetti

Let me just start with saying how thankful I am for freezer cooking. I’ve been sick for almost a week now and having meals in the freezer, ready to go has been such a blessing!

Planning and preparing healthy meals, to help with our goal of losing weight, has been an incredible challenge. The idea of having 30 meals in the freezer (ready to […]

Butternut Squash Soup

Last week I posted about preparing butternut squash for a vegetable side. Gina commented that she was making butternut squash soup and was kind enough to share her recipe.

Ingredients 1 large butternut squash (3-4 lbs.) 4 c. chicken broth 1 onion pinch of cinnamon pinch of allspice pinch of […]
