This recipe is so simple, I almost feel silly posting it. but the fact is, it’s been a phenomenal time saver for me. I’ve become slightly obsessed with weekly food prep where you prepare a bunch of components for meals several days (or a week) ahead of time, and store them in the fridge. Have you Keep Reading
Freezer cooking is a great way to save money and time! If you aren’t familiar with the concept, it means freezing fresh ingredients together in a container or plastic freezer baggie. Then you pull them out the day of and throw them in the oven or the slow cooker. It’s a totally genius idea!
One perfect time to use freezer cooking is before you are about to have a baby. When I was prepping for Hadassah’s birth, I made so many freezer meals so that I could just pop them out for dinner! No cooking required! If you make the freezer meals large enough you can even have a portion left over for lunch the following day.
Chicken, beef and pork all work great in freezer meals. So do most vegetables and fruits. You can make freezer meals with grains and beans too! I love things like enchiladas, chicken pot pie and black bean burgers for freezer meal options.
Chicken pot pie is one of my favorite gluten-free recipes for dinner. And this is the best chicken pot pie recipe. Why? Well, it’s delicious obviously, but also very nutritious with the incorporations of vegetables, meat, and cicken broth. Especially when you use homemade chicken broth. I’m so Keep Reading
I love chicken broth. It adds so much flavor and nutritional value to many gluten-free recipes, and homemade slow-cooker chicken broth couldn't be easier! Chicken broth is an awesome addition to soups, rice, gravy, sauces… and the list goes on. And like most things, there is just no comparing what Keep Reading
Black bean burgers are a vegan gluten-free recipe alternative so delicious, you'll never even miss the meat! So, you may be wondering what in the world a gal who raises grass fed beef as part of her livelihood is doing making vegan recipes. To be honest, it does feel a little weird. But the Keep Reading
Until a few weeks ago, I’d never heard of freezing pickles, and when I did, it sounded like a terrible idea. Some of the recipe notes, and descriptions in the pickle-making book that Gabriel swiped from his parent’s house earlier this year intrigued me though, so one day, on one of those rare Keep Reading
Oh, was I supposed to be prepping for baby? Oops, I forgot. Not really. But at the end of last week, I was so stressed, trying to get all these things done, like cleaning the house top to bottom so I could “relax once the baby came” and organizing everything, and getting meals in the freezer, and Keep Reading
Do you ever feel like the more you do, the more you had to do? That’s how this week has been. The more items I check off of my to do list, the more I add to it. Sometimes, it feels a little like drowning, but I do enjoy staying busy, so I won’t complain too much. Early this week, I finished Keep Reading
We had a bit of a crazy weekend with farm work and a surprise birthday party for dad, so I’m combining what should have been Saturday’s post on baby prepping with today’s fit pregnancy post. Moving Garrett’s clothing and stuff into his new room wasn’t a big deal, and I’m enjoying the extra Keep Reading
Early this week, I came down sick with some sort of stomach virus and wasn’t sure I’d be able to get normal chores done, to say nothing of the extra cooking and rearranging I wanted to do. I simply cannot believe how in one day - one day - of being too sick to get out of bed much, the house can Keep Reading
This January, when Gabriel and I sat down to kind of map out what we wanted to get done this year, one of the items on my list was to have 50 meals in the freezer by July first, preparatory to having a new baby in the house. I got jolted into action last week when a friend unexpectedly went into Keep Reading
