One thing that can become overwhelming during the holidays is cooking. To take the stress out of cooking start looking at what you can cook in double batches and freeze half or look at easy meals like crock pot meals. Here are some of my favorite freezer recipes and crock pot dinners. Easy recipes are your friends during the holidays!
My recipe is with berries, but imagine these filled with pumpkin! Quickly blend up vanilla yogurt, pumpkin pie spice, and pumpkin puree to fill these crepes for a great holiday breakfast you can pull out of the freezer.
Do up a few batches of toasted almonds and store them in the freezer. They can be in there for up to 2 years! Either pull them out and just let them sit on the counter to warm up or toss them in the oven at 200 degrees stirring every 10 minutes till toasty and warm.
I actually have a few different meatloaf recipes on Pepper Scraps. I really like to find one thing I like to make and then find different ways to make it. This is a great way to make things quick and simple for dinner.
Healthy Mom = Healthy Family - That is my life motto and I hope to encourage it to be yours too. January 2011 I made the decision to lose weight and lost 80+ pounds. I saw my boys start getting active with me and I realized I wasn't only changing my life but also my boys.
