After my last freezer cooking session, several people e-mailed me to ask how to get started with freezer cooking.
I remember when I got started with freezer cooking about eight years ago. The idea of making a lot of meals was overwhelming, and honestly, a whole day making meals for the month can be overwhelming.

Instead, I often now take an easier route. I double a recipe and serve one while freezing the other one. Hands down, my favorite resource currently is MyFreezEasy, mainly because it makes freezer cooking so easy. Pick your recipes, and you’ll get a list of all of the ingredients you need to purchase as well as directions for making the meals. Easy peasy. (See my full MyFreezEasy review here.)
Even better, for a limited time, you can try out MyFreezEasy for free by joining the Make One, Freeze One challenge coming up next week, October 16 – 20th. (Join now so you have time to get your groceries this weekend!)
