    Hi,
    The other night I made Mini Lemon Meringue Pies by Chickee for Aussie recipe swap#15 - April 2008, I had a few left over to bake and I halfed final the cooking time down so as the meringue did not brown too much, flash froze them and then put them into containers. Tonight I reheated them approx 8 minutes in a reheatd oven, and they came out wonderfuly well. The meringue was perfect and they tasted fantastic.
    I buy frozen lemon meringue but I wont be any more I will making and freezing these from now on!


    I didn't know you could freeze meringue! My DS would be thrilled if I pulled some of these out of the freezer!


    JillAZ, I buy these frozen from the supermarket quite often.
    So expensive too, because of all the packaging they have to keep them from breaking.
    Its funny I never thought of doing it myself, until I made these! The recipe I made is a made a bit different to the usual Lemon Merangue, It didnt seem to weep juices into the pastry the next day like the usual ones do........... this is a great recipe and freezes really well!

    Posted this review of Grilled Korean Pork Chops

    Made these during an OAMC session by putting chops and marinade in freezer bags. I was out of ginger so I didn't even use any and it still tasted great. Used extra garlic, as I do with most recipes. Took out of the freezer and put in the fridge the night before we planned to grill. Froze fantastic: one of our favorite OAMC pork recipes so far! We really loved it...it was juicy and tasty. This will become a regular in our house, as we love to grill.

    "Southern Scalloped Potatoes"

    here's my review - "these taters were really tasty LOL! i've made these twice now, once exactly as written, the 2nd time i added a touch of garlic, thyme, and parsley. not much, just a touch of each to up the flavor just a tad. i have to say we all preferred the 2nd batch, 4yo DD said they were her mostest favoritest food ever LOL! the recipe is so good in general i'm giving it 5*s even though i'll tweak it for now on. i cooked my potatoes as directed the day before and stuck them in the cool garage till i was ready to use them. that way i didn't have to fuss w/ the hot potatoes. i also split the last batch into smaller dishes and baked some right away, the others i popped in the freezer. i used my microwave to thaw and cook and it turned out fantastic! i'll make sure to keep some of these on hand when i need a quick side dish. thanks for a great recipe!"

    i used the sensor setting on my convection microwave to both thaw and cook so can't tell you exact times, sorry, but this turned out really good and it's easy to make several batches at once for OAMC. icon_smile.gif


    I also froze this quite awhile back - "Cheerios Jumbo Breakfast Cookies" just thawed on the counter and they were great.

    got one more for you... man is this good and i don't even really like coconut!

    "Paula Deen's Jamie's Coconut Cake"

    review- "i can't believe i hadn't rated this previously! I don't care that much for coconut or paula dean for that matter, but THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE CAKES!! I made this last year when my sister requested a coconut cake for her birthday and i couldn't believe how good it was and how much DH and i like it (he doesn't really care for coconut either). After i had the 2nd layer in place i decided it was just too much cake for all of us so i made the 3rd layer into a cake on its' own and froze it for later (icing and all). we pulled it out a couple weeks later and it was delish. it froze perfectly! So I wanted to make this for easter this year and i didn't notice until after i made the filling that i was making the wrong cake! I didn't have the coconut milk on hand so i went ahead and made the other cake, but used this icing which was the only thing that saved that cake. The icing is so darn good i could sit down w/ a bowl of that stuff. and by the way, don't let the icing sit too long on the cake before patting the coconut in, i decided to toast the coconut before putting it on the cake and by the time i did that the icing had dried ever so slightly and the coconut didnt' stick quite as well. Next time i'll remember which cake to use, this cake is one of the best ones out there! Yum!"

    This is one that I just added to my OAMC cookbook, and have updated my review to reflect same. I have not tried re-heating these from frozen, so that will be your own test icon_lol.gif . However, if I do know this is the next night's dinner, I just let them thaw in the fridge overnight, and then nuke them for 1.5 mins. on high....even 1 hr. at room temp. will likely accomplish the same results. Microwaves vary tremendously, so you may have to keep an eye on this. These make HUGE burritos, so unless you are a very big eater, 1/2 and a salad(or such) will be a great dinner....you can read my edited comments. My freezer will not lack for these at any time in the future........I definitely recommend the addition of the extra can of beans, and even another corn if you really want to stretch the recipe. I promise you, this recipe is so rich and delicious, it'll stand up to almost any addition you want to make. Additional cheeses of your choice go particularly well, too!

    Crock Pot Chicken W/ Black Beans and Cream Cheese...yum!

    "Chocolate Chocolate Chip Sour Cream Banana Bread"

    "wow, this is good. makes alot too! i doubled the recipe and ended up w/ 5 loaves plus a dozen muffins! guess i should have read through the whole recipe LOL... very moist and yummy though and those lucky enough to get a loaf raved about how good it was. freezes well too, i sliced one loaf and packed in individual baggies for those rushed mornings. just thaw in the microwave and you're good to go. this recipe is a keeper, and even my banana hating husband liked it. he said it' "pretty good but it's contaminated by bananas!" which to me is a good thing... icon_smile.gif"

    Creamy Un-Sweet Potatoes freezes very well.

    Quote:
    This was great! I love love love sweet potatoes, though my husband is not much of a fan. I had snuck 3 small sweet potatoes into the house (did I mention DH doesn't care for them?) and tried this recipe. We both loved it! I did use a little less than called for of the cheeses and butter, and I used light cream cheese. Still. I mixed it up in the stand mixer, and, rather than bake in one casserole, I divided the entire recipe into two ramekins and baked that way. The potatoes were smooth and creamy, with a lovely richness. Sadly, there were no leftovers. I'll plan to try this again to see how it freezes (although I can't imagine why it wouldn't freeze beautifully). Thanks so much for sharing! 06-06-08-Edited to Add - We froze this and defrosted for dinner last night it was still just as good as it was the first time! Yummy!


    Normally, I'd just bake in the oven as directed, but since last evening the temp was well into the 80s and we were grilling anyway, I just left the foil pan covered with aluminum foil and baked on the top rack of the grill. icon_smile.gif

    I made Weight Watchers Chocolate Cupcakes today, my review isn't even posted yet, but it's super awesome. I froze one and then reheated it to make sure it would turn out ok. It did icon_smile.gif The best part? It only cost me $3.20 to make 32 muffins! Yay! And they are super healthy.

    Here are a few that I have made into what I call Freezer Dinner Kits but aren't listed as so:

    Bourbon Chicken For this one I bag the chicken in a large baggie, seal; then combine remaining ingredients in a large freezer bag, smoosh to combine, seal. I then place the baggie of chicken and the baggie of sauce into another large freezer bag (to prevent freezer burn) print the recipe and slide that in there too. I lay the bag flat in my freezer so that other meals can stack on top.
    MaMa's Supper Club Tilapia Parmesan This one I use tilapia and it comes frozen so I just portion out what I need (about 6) into a large freezer bag, then in a quart size bag I combine everything else, smoosh to a paste, seal, squeeze the air out. Print the recipe, slide all bags (and recipe) into a large freezer bag and seal! Comes out great!
    Cuban Ropa Vieja - Crock Pot The same for this one except it's more like a dump recipe. No need to seperate the meat. The directions say to brown the flank then place in a crock pot, I have assembled, froze and made this probably 3 times and have "dumped" it all in and it turn out great! A good tip for picky kids. When you get the meat out to shred, per the directions, I use my hand blender and blend the sauce. It creates a great sauce to serve over rice and hides all the chunky veggies!
    Grilled Chipotle Lime Chicken Breasts - or Thighs Same as the others. Bag chicken by itself then mix the remaining in a quart sz baggie. Directions say not to add the honey, but I do and it always comes out fine.
    Once thawed, cook as directed.
    I have SO many more that I have done this with. I' will slowly add them as not to bombarred you all!!

    Oh and this one (one of our favs)
    Crock Pot Chicken Taco Meat I place all ingredients, including the chicken, in a large freezer bag and freeze. Turns into a dump recipe. Throw it in the crock and it comes out great! Thanks Pamela!

    Make Ahead Omelet - The pan can be lined with foil, frozen, and wrapped tightly to be thawed later.

    Do Ahead Brunch - Put extra cheese to be added later in a separate baggie, and freeze as above.

    Make-Ahead Breakfast - Same as above.

    Make Ahead Breakfast Casserole - Same as above.

    Make-Ahead Scrambled Eggs - Same as above.

    Make Ahead Breakfast Cake - This would be great doubled, and lined with foil and frozen.

    Make-Ahead Meatballs - I'd freeze them on a baking sheet individually, then put them in a baggie.

    Kittencal's Do-Ahead Garlic - This is a great idea.

    Make Ahead Tuna Burgers - Freeze in an airtight container.

    Make Ahead Turkey Gravy

    Choose a Savory Stuffing.......

    Add the butter later, store tightly sealed, and it has a lot of choices as to what to make.
