Freezable Foods - This is a handy list as I often find myself wondering, especially lately, if certain foods will freeze or not.
Make Ahead Meals: There is quite possibly no better feeling than serving your family a home-cooked meal. But after a long and hard day at work, sometimes we just don’t have the energy. Make-ahead meals are a wonderful choice on nights like that. You can freeze nearly any type of casserole, just make certain that the ingredients are all cooked before-hand. Remove from the freezer in the morning if you anticipate a busy day, and by dinner time, it should be defrosted. Heat up as normal.
