Twenty-Five Freezer Meals That Don’t Require Any Cooking Ahead of Time

By November 7, 2013Freezer Prep Session

Here are 25 freezer meals that don’t require any cooking ahead of time.  That’s right.  NO COOKING.  Simply combine the meats, vegetables, sauces and spices, and freeze!

Twenty five freezer meals that don't require any cooking ahead of time

Since none of these freezer meals need to be cooked before freezing them, the prep process is super fast.  They’re the perfect recipes for busy moms who struggle to get dinner on the table, let alone stock their freezers too.

Prep a couple of these freezer recipes while your kids are napping (or watching TV) or set aside a few hours on the weekend to stock your freezer.  Whatever works for you.

All of these freezer meals cook for the first time in your slow cooker or oven.  That means they taste just as good as freshly-prepared meals – not like leftovers at all!

Curious how it all works?  Check out the recipes below!

  • faith says:

    I read your original recipe for party pork. And am curious if you put all the ingredients in to your freezer as a freezer meal, does it increase the cook time or temp from the original recipe. Your original recipe shows cooking times for cooking with fresh unfrozen meat…. but your freezer meal idea would start from frozen. Please let me know as I want to try some of these recipes for the freezer, but think you should make it a little more clear for people to follow on cook times 🙂 Thanks so much for posting…

  • gillian says:

    Thanks for the recipes and for the sharing. I am a little taken aback though, have to say, in this year 2013, plus the fact that you are a psychologist, that you say your mission is to make life easier for moms, and Happy Quick Freezing Ladies! What about the Dads, Husbands? My partner cooks almost as much as I do, we are as busy as each other juggling child, home, and work life. Please, maybe it’s a small thing to you, but wording and language is important, and every time someone in your position limits women to the kitchen like we were still stuck in the sexist 50s, and vice versa – the kitchen remains the domain of women, then society is not helped, women are not helped, and men are not supported in taking on domestic life either!
    Hope you can understand what I am saying….

    • Kelly says:

      I think it’s great when men are active with cooking, childcare, and all other household responsibilities! Marriage is a partnership and we need to support one another, for sure!

    • Mandy says:

      I like to try to remember not to take offense when none is given. If her wording doesn’t fit your situation, her advise and recipes can still be valid and useful. Just take what you need from it and leave what you don’t. There are enough things in life to be upset about without adding to them by worrying about things that were never meant to be offensive to anyone.

    • Geri says:

      I believe if a woman is sure within herself that she is important, that her position as a woman, and wife and mother, is worthwhile work, I don’t think she’s going to be bothered by “wording” or “labels” or what the rest of the world thinks. She KNOWS she’s a valid, contributing, member of society, and of her household. I don’t think the world has trouble identifying a strong, complete, woman. We know who we are. It’s in the knowing that the world around us takes their cues from… I am woman, hear me ROAR! The kitchen, (or the house, or kids, or shopping, etc., etc.) only “remains the domain of the woman” so long as she, herself, allows it to limit, and label, her… Let your husband do the cooking and/or shopping. YOU know who you are. What the world thinks is immaterial.

    • Boaz says:

      I’m a dude. Father of 4. Married to the most beautiful woman in the world who also happens to be a lot smarter and stronger than me (yes, she can kick my ass at any given moment). And there is one thing I can tell Gillian about strong, smart, beautiful women like my wife: they couldn’t give a rat’s ass about whether or not a a strong, beautiful, smart woman like Kelly was or was not 100% politically correct in delivering a very helpful, thoughtful article. Gillian, I gotta to tell you, sweat-heart: You are a pain in the ass. Oh, and I apologize if I offended you with the word sweat-heart. Now go get laid or something – it’s 2013 and all…

      • Will says:

        Telling someone they need to get laid in order to think clearly is disgustingly misogynist, as is the demeaning label of “sweat(sic)-heart.”

        As a man who also married the most beautiful woman the world (maybe we should compare notes), I was taken aback the conclusion as well. Not enough to comment until I saw your slime, but as someone who cooks the majority of the week, I feel there is no reason to continue the stereotype, even in written language.

        The article is greatly appreciated, but your demeanor is not.

        P.S. my wife does care about making sure that those who do work get recognized. It is 2013, after all.

        • WW says:

          *applause* @Will

        • Jennifer says:

          Thank you for your comment, Will. When I first read the article the first thing I noticed was how sexist it sounded. I wasn’t turned off enough to comment but when I saw how people reacted to Gillian I felt obligated. Saying “busy parents” is just as easy to write as “busy moms.” My father cooked (and cleaned) as much or more than my mother and my husband cooks a little more than I do now. As someone expecting their first child I am even more aware now of these gender expectations and sterotypes. I actually hear more sexist comments from woman than I do men; it is refreshing to hear men like you!

          • Jessica says:

            Anyone who thinks this article sounds sexist looks at the world through jaded shades.
            Seriously, I bet those who think this article sounds sexist slam every single article that is geared at a specific gender group.
            There is seriously one word in the entire article that talks to one group, and that’s the line “Happy cooking ladies.”
            This blog author writes to MOMS. Sure, there are dads and singles and men and teens that can benefit from some of her articles… but she writes to moms. Get over it! Is it seriously that big of a deal?

            Woodworkers blog to woodworkers. Ballerinas blog to ballerinas. And moms have the right to blog to moms.
            Ugh, why do I even scroll to the comment section anymore? It’s only full of bitter and negative people who read WAAAAY too much in to things.

        • Mary says:

          Boaztelling somebody to get “laid” sounds too close to rape culture language for my taste. I would hate for somebody to say something like that to my daughter, sisters, friends. It’s an offensive, aggressive, and suggestive comment.
          Also, the original poster’s comment on using gender-neutral language was worded very tactfully and politely. I don’t think it’s fair for people to write personal attacks, it’s her opinion, and it’s a good suggestion.

      • Marikae says:

        You’re awesome Boaz!

      • Amanda says:

        Dude, I love your comment!! Freakin love it. I am a stay home, homeschooling, homesteading, bad-ass hay haulin’ mama who is an amazing and supportive wife, my husband deploys often. I AM a woman and a girl all at once, and I do not WANT to be the same equal. In some ways I am smarter and more capable, but when my engine oil is low, or my clutch master cylinder goes out-I do love that my husband is quick and happy to fix it. And when men say sweet heart, I think awww… He is a nice guy!

      • CV says:

        Bahahahahaha! Well said.

      • Scotts girl says:

        SPOT ON Boaz!!!
        Gillian sounds like one those feminazis that hates everything in the free world!

    • Michele says:

      Yes, I think we all understand…. you’re nit-picking.

    • Jessica says:

      If you have a partner that cooks, good for you! And kudos to him!
      But most of us either 1. don’t, or 2. have a partner that, when cooking, makes either hot dogs or nachos.
      I didn’t even THINK about this article being sexist (especially since there is only one word in the article that speaks specifically to ladies, and that word is “ladies” in the closing sentence) until you said something about it. I only thought “Wow, this sure would make basketball Wednesdays easier!” You are the one who made this article sexist, not the author.

      If you’re referring to her “about me” section, get over it. This lady’s mission is to help moms who are struggling to make time for all the craziness that comes with motherhood. If you want a blog that is gender neutral, find a blogger who says his/her job is to make parents lives easier. Why is it insulting that this woman wants to help moms like me?!

      My mission is to help birthmothers cope with placing their babies for adoption. You going to slam me for not mentioning birth fathers? Give me a break. Would I love to reach out to birth fathers, too? Sure. Do I get them? Can I relate to them? Not really. If she wants to speak to women, that’s her prerogative. And I’m grateful for it.

      Motherhood is to be revered and respected. Those of us who are still the cookers and cleaners and diaper changers and taxis deserve respect. Some of us actually even ENJOY those times when we can put on an apron and cook barefoot in the kitchen. Please don’t downplay our roles because SOME men cook and clean. Kudos to those men, but seriously.

      Author, please keep helping us busy moms (my husband will never read a blog, so it’s not important that you cater to him). 🙂 Thanks!

      • Jessica says:

        P.S. It is SO STUPID that this FANTASTIC post with GREAT ideas for frozen meals turned into a gender language battle.
        What the heck? No one CARES if you say ladies or guys. I could care less if a paper says “he” or “she.” Lame and terribly annoying. Why does every single article I read have to turn negative in the comments? Get. Over. It.

        • Barbara says:

          I agree, Get Over It People. She said “Busy Moms” because she is one…. You people have way to much time on your hands if your offended by that. You need more important things in your life to worry about.
          Thank you for the recipes.

        • Jacky says:

          I agree with you Jessica. It is just that so many people are filled with hate the last few years. We all eat, we all need meal ideas, and busy moms appreciate this article.

    • Ben says:

      As a man who does the majority of the cooking in our household, I’d like to say I wasn’t offended by your choice of vocabulary, Kelly!

    • Cheers, Gillian. I hope your words at least inspired some others to think about gender roles and how language forms the framework upon which we build our reality. I think you made your point very respectfully and succinctly. Thanks for speaking up. If we, who notice these things, continue to point them out, perhaps one day we won’t need to anymore.
      I really like the post, by the way, and will be sharing it with my husband.
      No offense intended to anyone.

    • Toni says:

      Please, please, please, gillian, if you are offended by any words in this blog, just simply move on to another blog that suits you. There are thousands to choose from. Google “dad’s cooking” or something similar. Kelly is talking to busy Moms. That does not mean that Dads, children, grandmas and granddads can not take something away from it. When I want to learn how to do something that is considered a “man’s job,” I don’t get offended when the tutorial is obviously talking to males. I take and learn from it what I want.
      Kelly, I noticed that you take the high road on these comments. Kudos! And thanks for the recipes.

    • Donna says:

      I don’t think of it as limiting women to the kitchen. I think if it as adding something else we can do, increasing learning, improving a skill etc… My husband does more than 50% of the cooking these days (I used to do almost all of it). Being a housewife is not demeaning. I have been one nearly 30 of our 37 yrs of marriage. I very much enjoy it. 🙂

    • Alex says:

      WOW leave it to the internet to take offense over a post- giving away FREE recipes. I’m printing these for my husband and I both- as we are both busy professionals and I take no offense. No one is perfect, and if you’re concerned about PC, stay off the internet, tv, and every other form of communication. Word to the wise, you cannot and should not control others or enforce your opinions on them.

      When you decide to make a site giving away free recipes, by all means include as many pc terms as possible, and please brush up on your PC wording as well as your post was offensive as well. When addressing your audience why are you only including male and female, do not forget the trans community. Its a very un-pc of you to just assume everyone is male and female, husband and wife. It is 2015 now! 😉

  • Joyce Adrian says:

    Don’t forget that many Dads are cooking the meals, while Mom works or attends classes; or they just like to do the cooking. These meals are good for kids learning to cook as well. Good ideas.

    • Kathy says:

      Should you really be putting meat and vegetables in a single package and freeze them? Don’t you worry about cross contamination as it thaws or freezes? Not so sure I would do that. However, I used to do this for my husband years ago because he and a construction crew lived 200 miles away during the week in a RV. I would package everything together in a gallon bag is separate other zip locks, but did take some precautions with the meat packages so as they thawed and froze, there was little risk of cross contamination.

      • Kelly says:

        No, I’m not sure what kind of contamination could take place. Don’t you cook your meats and vegetables together in your slow cooker and your stovetop?

      • keri says:

        There is nor need for worry of cross contamination. All of the food, meat and veg are going into a slow cooker. They are going to be cooked together . You only need to worry about cross contamination if you are eating raw foods. Like cutting raw chicken and then cutting lettuce on the same cutting board. If you cook it the bacteria is gone.

  • kate says:

    you need a pin it button my dear!

  • Heidi says:

    My husband will be glad to know that you count cookies as a meal as well! 😉

  • Shanna says:

    As a mother of four, soon to be 5, plus running a ranch with my husband, these recipes are exactly what I needed!!!! Thank you for taking the time to post them and for putting up with other people’s criticism on your wording. I am known in this area for my cooking especially when we have hired help for supper. With another baby on the way, time is in short supply for big meals that take all day to prepare. Thank you again!!!

  • Angela says:

    Why offer up a list of 25 recipes, when only 13 of them are actually available. I get you’re trying to make money, but when you offer up 25 recipes, I expect to see links to 25 recipes, and not links to an e-cookbook.

    • Kelly says:

      I shared all 25 because they’re my favorite “no cook” freezer recipes. Plus I wanted to give moms an idea how many different types of no cook freezer recipes are out there.

      • Shannon says:

        Angela’s right. Not all the links go to an actual recipe. Some of them go straight to the ad for the book. Glad to check out your book, but what Angela says, if you offer “25 recipes” you ought to deliver 25 recipes, not 13 recipes and ads.

        • lori says:

          So, it was your intention to publish a list of 25 meals and only offer up recipes for 13 of them? Why not then just post a list of 13 recipes, and then say, for the rest, try my cookbooks? This to me is misleading and it makes me not want to buy your products.

          • Kelly says:

            My intention was to share a list of my favorite 25 freezer meals that don’t require any cooking ahead of time.

      • Jessie says:

        Clearly some people can not read the part on some of the recipes that states those particular recipes are found in your cookbook. It’s really sad that people can’t take what is given to them for free and be greatful. Instead they complain and think they should be entitled to more. I personally love what you have offered and appreciate it whole heartedly

  • Jeff says:

    Great resource! Thank you for these.

    By the way, your website isn’t just for moms. 🙂 I’m a stay-at-home dad (yes, a kept man) and this definitely helps me with dinner-prep for the Mrs. and our 2 kids.

    p.s. For a couple years, I used a local service. I won’t name them, but this was their business: you chose meals online, came in to prep them, bag them, then brought home a dozen freezer bags for the freezer. Each bag was a ready-to-cook meal for 4-6 people. Was a good service, but their prices grew too quickly. Anyway, you helped a lot, to cut out the “middle man.” 🙂


  • Wendy says:

    Do you have a shopping list for the 25 freezer meals that you don’t have to precook?

    • Kelly says:

      No, I’ve never made all 25 at once. I include a grocery list in my freezer cookbook for all of the recipes inside it though. Sorry I can’t be of more help!

  • Brian says:

    Great recipes. I will make my first one tonight. I also am following you on Instagram.


  • Jennifer says:

    Hi Kelly — Thanks for sharing this resource. I am sorry that Gillian, Angela, Jennifer and Shannon, et al didn’t think they got their money’s worth off your freely shared ideas. I am always stunned on sites like these how rude and needy people are — “do you have a shopping list? Can you change the recipe for my food choices? Why don’t you use ingredient X instead of Y?” And now, “you are sexist for using the term “busy moms.” All I have to say is “Wow.” Some of those people would probably also be offended if you held a door open for them.

  • Angie says:

    This is a resource. It is not a one size fits all. Everyone stop being so sensitive and over-reacting. If someone that co-parents and is the MALE version of that couple is so BOTHERED by her saying “busy Moms” WHY is it that he didn’t get on and post and complain. We heard from men. Some appealing some not. Some in defense of themselves as stay at home Dads, some in defense of the female race. I’m secure in who I am married to. My husband can’t cook anything but BREAKFAST and breakfast for dinner gets OLD. I’d happily link him up to this page if I thought he’d actually read it and learn something. He’d read it and then say “Honey recipe X, Y and Z sound awesome WE should try” Now let me point out that this COLLECTIVE “WE” means–ME. Take the great info, lose the judgement and attitude about your personal situation, stop reflecting on the author’s misuse of a term and directing your anger at her over your own situation. APPRECIATE the information here and be grateful. God created Google to make our lives easier not for people to stop being forward thinkers—change the ingredients any way you want. Experiement with one of the recipes ON A WEEKEND (there is a thought) so that yes—if it burns or doesn’t turn out right—call out for pizza. For the love of God, just grow up.

  • CK says:

    I think this post should be called 13 meals… Since the other meals are just a ploy to get us to buy a cookbook for the recipes! Very misleading!

  • Rob says:

    Wow this is so simple even dads could probably use them. 😮

  • Kristyn says:


    Maybe I am doing something wrong or have misinterpreted what I have read but for the most part I dont see how one is supposed to prepare any of the recipes I have been able to click on for the freezer and what to do with them when you take them back out for cooking; two some of the links for recipes are to a cookbook….is this advertising for a book you have written about non cooked freezer recipes…Im totally confused as to what I am supposed to be getting out of this. As a new mom I was excited to read about simple recipes that didnt require any cooking ahead of time but am finding a real lack of either direction or recipes altogether.

    Thank you

    • Kelly says:

      Many of the meals on the list link directly to a recipe with freezer instructions. If you have never made freezer meals before, I shared my best “freezer meal tips” and “freezer-to-slow cooker tips” in previous blog posts (links toward the bottom of this blog post). My freezer recipes cookbook also includes tips and instructions for people who have never prepared homemade freezer meals before.

  • Andrea says:

    comments are a hoot! so few actualy talked about the recipies and more about suposed sexist wording… my freezer is neither male or female..who cares! good ideas for quick meals!

  • M says:

    I think it’s silly that people are getting so up in arms about the wording. I am a stay at home mom and if I were writing an article like this I would probably automatically think of other busy moms and how helpful they might find it. It’s silly to get all offended because she didn’t stop and think and make her wording gender neutral. SMH.

    Get over yourself.

  • AM says:

    I am sorry, but this is the problem with blogs….. you are at a computer, not talking in person and people feel like they need to comment and make stupid comments. Who the heck cares if a line says ladies, guys or whatever, didn’t we all check out this site for the recipes??? Also, so what if some of the links don’t work. Can’t you be happy that you now have 13 more recipe ideas that what you started with??? I wanted to read the comments to see if there were comments about the recipes or cooking procedures, not to read people’s stupid comments about a specific word used or some of the links not working. Stop complaining and being ridiculous!!!

  • Lawrence says:

    I just wanted to say thank you Kelly for sharing those ideas and links.
    I come from a family of 6 and have for years done a large portion of cooking. when in the service I went to culinary school to further educate myself in the art.
    These are great easy to prepare nearly no brain er meals that get back to the basic core foods we all need in our diets and the frpm freezer to slow cooker is often over looked as one of our best options to provide healthy meals to our families without all the massive fuss of preparing and cooking it all in one setting.
    I often prepare meals like pork shoulder roast with potatoes, carrots and gravy in the slow cooker a few times a week and it is really nice to have dinner ready when you walk in and smell the done food armor through out the house.
    Yes if you are curious I am a guy. your article was well written and I truly enjoyed it. Those pulling the sexist card should take it to a forum that is appropriate for it. Here it is about getting good meals on the table without breaking your back every day and it does not matter if you are mom or dad.. or big brother or sister. Tome it is about getting good reliable information to fill the tummy and keep em healthy. So once again thank you for a great article.

  • Vicki says:

    Can these meals be done just in the oven? My husband is not too fond of the slow cooker.

    • Kelly says:

      You might be able to do the “slow cooker” recipes in your oven, but I’ve never tried and I can’t imagine that they’d taste better than they do cooking in the slow cooker. The other recipes will work in your oven or microwave, and I think you could do most of the soups and chilis on your stovetop.

  • Andrea says:

    Hi Kelly ! I don’t give a damn about ” your wording ” I don’t give a damn about “only 13 receipts ” I hate cooking ! I really appreciate your suggestions for cooking and please don’t let the pain in the bum people ruin your day or stop sharing xxxx

  • Kathy says:

    I want to order your ebook combo, but am unable to on your site? Is is me or my computer, or is their a problem? Any suggestions? Thanks!

    • Kelly says:

      Hmmm, I’ve gotten orders from other people today so it must be working for some people. What kind of problem are you having? Are you getting an error message?

  • Lisa says:

    just found your site and am laughing all the way to the grocery store on the comments. These additional recipes will be such a help on busy days, when I don’t have time to think, let alone cook. Thank you so much for your blessing in my life.

  • Kate says:

    Hi! I’m very eager to try out freezer crock pot cooking and your recipes. However, I came across an about.com link which suggest cooking frozen foods in a slow cooker may pose a risk of food posioning since “food must reach 140 degrees within 1-1.5 hrs to prevent bacteria growth”. Would this be the case with these recipes? Many thanks for any advice,

    • Kelly says:

      I recommend thawing frozen slow cooker meals in the refrigerator the night before you plan to cook them. This will also help the meal fit in your slow cooker because it won’t be a frozen block!

  • Debra says:

    We are on low carb diets and so we do not eat sugar, potatoes, rice, pasta or other grains. Do you have any recipes that would work for us?
    Thank you, Debra

  • Pam says:

    This recipe sight caught my eye and clicked on it for possibly some new ideas, I may be 63 but still work and always anxious for new ideas. I scrolled through the recipes and wondered if my daughters-in-laws might like them plus myself. Then to the comments……..I must admit I may be considered a novice when it comes to modern technology but am truly trying to keep up. What I have seen in all of the comment sections is totally out of my understanding of the human race as I know it. There are many that seem to be stuck on titles of who does what? Isn’t it all about trying to raise children and take care of families no matter who is doing it??? All I can say, is get over yourselves….it is the families that count, not your egos, these kids need taken care of and a nice dinner to fill tummies. If you don’t like what you read, move on, is this the results of not being face to face with someone with ideas and one feels they be as nasty as they choose because they are unseen? I truly don’t know the answer but my gosh, all of this drama and name calling sure gets old fast. The fellas that are taking care of families, I do so appreciate your actions as well as your children. Now, am going to scroll back to the recipes that caught my attention in the first place and I do thank the person responsible for trying to give us some new ideas, I don’t care how many there are, law of averages says not all of them would be used anyway!

  • […] taking off in unexpected ways. “My blog gained traction and I started writing e-cookbooks. One article I wrote to promote my cookbook, 15-Minute Freezer Recipes went viral…it just blew up!” With […]

  • Jodi says:

    Hi! I just wanted to let you know how significant NOT having to cook in order to prep freezer meals is to me! I have always loved the concept of freezer cooking. But most prep, and prep for the prep (ha) is overwhelming! I rarely have enough to purchase a large amount of groceries so cooking two meals when making one is frequently a very viable solution for me. However, like you mention, then the meal tastes like (and is) leftovers! I’m so excited about this article and how you have the recipes listed and easily linked, that I’ve already shared the information on another (financial) site I follow (GetRichSlowly.org) on the article they just posted about breaking the stress spending cycle. I’m not in any way affiliated with your site, or theirs…I’m just a follower and a fan of useful information. 🙂 I’m so excited to prep this weekend! Thank you.

  • L.L. says:

    Great meal ideas! I don’t have a crockpot so this makes me want to buy one? Are there brands u recommend more than others? Since it is just the two of us i would prob get a slow cooker for two ppl. If I did get a four quart slow cooker can i freeze half the meal after i cook it?
    My hubby is from an arab country where women are expected to cook. Thankfully my dh knows i don’t like (or know how!) cook so he knows if he wants to eat he has to cook it himself!
    I was wondering a substitute for pork b/c we can’t eat it due to religious reasons, and also wine vinegars (for the same reason). Do u have any ideas? I would love to get ur cookbook but money is tight right now so i will deff try to save for it. I was thinking I would like to buy a copy for the library. Any chance I can get a signed copy?

    • Kelly says:

      I own both Crock-Pot and Hamilton Beach slow cookers and they work great. I started with a 4-quart, but now my 6-quart is my favorite because I think it cooks roasts the best. My daughters won’t eat much meat, so often my husband and I are the only ones eating what I cook. We just eat the leftovers for lunch! 🙂

      I think boneless beef chuck shoulder roasts would work perfectly fine in any of my pork roast recipes. You could sub white vinegar, balsamic, or apple cider for the red wine vinegar. Most slow cooker recipes are very versatile and hard to mess up!

      I’ll definitely sign a copy for you! Thank you so much for reading my blog posts and taking the time to comment!!

    Do I need to purchase the recipes on this post? I couldn’t find them 🙁
    I could only find the link to the cookbooks used.

    • Kelly says:

      About half of the recipes are linked to in the post. The others are from my cookbooks and eBooks. I originally wrote this post when my books were part of a huge eBook sale. Sorry!

        Ohhhhhhhh…Ignore my comment further on down. After I scrolled past [way too many] comments about how terribly sexist you are (I bet you didn’t even know were before then…) I gave up, thinking that that was where the conversation would remain. I’m caught up now. They are not broken links.

        And, just to see how ignorant I was being, I just scrolled up to the article and saw that I completely skipped the line about the recipes without links. 😐 Don’t mind me.

    Hi Kelly,
    Great posts and I’ll definitely be following you for more tips and recipes. Being able to blast out a few weeks of dinners in an afternoon of prep work is a huge bonus to me. Thankfully, the comment trolls seemed to have mellowed for now;-)
    Keep up the great work.

  • Nicole says:

    I’m eager to try out your cookbooks. I’m wondering if I can open them on my nook tablet?

  • Jean says:

    Hi Kelly,
    I must say I admire your patience in responding to some of the comments and questions I’ve read here.
    As someone has already observed…..be grateful for the 13 free recipes included in the “25 recipes…….” blog and stop complaining about the other 12!

    My daughter recently left for college and now truly appreciates how much effort it takes to put a good meal on the table every night 🙂
    I plan to give her a small crock pot and some of your recipes. Hopefully, it will get her started on a easy way to eat healthily!
    I assume that she can halve the recipes for use in a small crock pot.

    Once again, thanks so much for sharing!

    I realize I’m a few years late to this article, but I’m happy to have stumbled across it nonetheless! (Just bought some coconut milk on sale, so I’ve been cruising Google for a good freezer coconut curry meal…)

    However, it looks like the links are broken on a handful of the recipes! *sad face* What are we to do?

  • Megan says:

    Just wanted to say thank you. I made over 24 no cook crockpot meals for after I had my baby last July. My mother helped me a week before I was due. It saved my family, especially since my son has multiple food allergies and we couldn’t just order in. Everything was delicious and organized in our freezer. I’m going to do it again very soon because it’s just so convenient to have on hand. Your the best.
