October through December are the busiest three months of the year for me. They are the months when I am so busy that cooking is practically impossible, and I often opt for takeout. This is not good for the health of my family or for my bank account. Luckily freezer meals can be a lifesaver during these busy months. From late July until the end of September I make an effort to store away as many freezer meals as I can to make it through the busy months. Finding recipes for freezer meals is easy, and you don’t have to buy a cookbook to find them, as many great freezer meal recipes can be found for free online. Here are three of my favorite places to find freezer meal recipes online for free.
Once a Month Mom
Probably one of the best resources for freezer meal recipes is the blog Once a Month Mom. While there is a subscription side to Once a Month Mom there is still plenty of free information and freezer recipes to be found there. One of the great things about Once a Month Mom is that it offers recipes for a variety of different diets. The recipes are divided into diet categories that include Traditional (which is what most families eat from), Paleo, Gluten/Dairy Free, Vegetarian, Whole Foods, and even Baby Food. Not only can you find recipes for freezer cooking but can also find information on how to get started with freezer cooking.
Fearless Freezer Cooking
Fearless Freezer Cooking is a great blog that shares freezer cooking recipes with their readers. The recipes at Fearless Freezer Cooking is broken down into several categories that include Beef, Breakfast, Dessert, Main Dishes, Chicken, No Thawing Required, Pasta, Pork, and more. In addition to the blog there is also a Fearless Freezer Cooking Facebook page where they discuss freezer cooking itself, answer questions about freezer cooking, and share even more freezer cooking recipes.
Unlike the previous two blogs Organized Home is not dedicated solely to freezer cooking but however shares quite a bit of information about freezer cooking, along with several great freezer cooking recipes. The recipes are organized into categories that include Basic Recipes, Beef, Chicken, Pork, Side Dishes, and Desserts. In addition to freezer meal recipes Organized Home also includes plenty of information on freezer cooking that includes information on getting started freezer cooking, how to set up a freezer cooking session, and FAQ’s about freezer cooking.
