    Make Ahead

    I never seem to be at home when it's time to fix supper. Kids, gotta love 'em, but their activities sure can mess up dinner time! I love make ahead food because it lets us eat at home and healthy.

    My son says he has eaten lasagna in so many restaurants, trying to find one as good as mine, but never has. So every time we visit him in Michigan I'm sure to make this for him.

    Recipe #18888

    These falafel have especially nice texture, as the chickpeas are soaked rather than cooked to soften. I usually cook these for supper, but the leftovers make great brown bag lunches. The falafel patties also freeze very well, making this a good choice for OAMC

    Recipe #351590

    Looking for something to eat during the "big game?!" Here's an idea...and it doesn't have to be just for kids! Feel free to let your imagination go to vary the filling! Prep time includes chilling or freezing time...You probably would want to make these the day before serving. (also makes 1 loaf French bread)

    Recipe #52636

    I make these and double the recipe. I wrap each burger and lay on a cookie sheet till frozen then bag, they keep in the freezer about 3 months. It's a great recipe for when ground chicken or turkey is on sale.

    Recipe #123779

    My kids love uncrustables but I think they are too expensive. So I started making my own. I don't cut the crust off mine but it's the same concept. I make these during my OAMC session.

    Recipe #327017

    This is adapted from an old TOH Quick Cooking recipe that has saved my tail many times. I keep them on hand in the freezer for those crazy busy times when I don't have time to cook.

    I was thinking that if you can make breakfast burritos to freeze than you have to be able to make a healthy wrap for lunch. Here is the result. Feel free to change it up to whatever sounds good to you!

    Recipe #109655

    These twice baked potatoes are great to keep in the freezer for busy days or unexpected company! When baking potatoes are on special, I buy a 10-15 pound bag and make about 30-35 of these creamy, delicious potatoes for the freezer. A wonderful side dish with steaks, roasts, seafood, pork and meatloaf. For variety, sprinkle top of potatoes with real bacon pieces just before serving. To have a meatless lunch, I often heat one of these potatoes in the microwave or toaster oven.

    Recipe #57062

    This came from One Bite Won't Kill You - a great kid-friendly cookbook. If you prefer to use bone-in chicken pieces, just cook for 1 hour instead.

    Recipe #96742

    This is great because it can be made up completely ahead and just bake it for 20 minutes for a terrific side dish.

    Recipe #14415

    These are the BEST mashed potatoes EVER! And they are so user-friendly because you can make them the night before. I never take these anywhere without people begging me for the recipe. Once you make these, you will never want to make them any other way. Also great in twice-baked potatoes. And, if you need really easy, buy pre-cooked mashed potatoes, add from these ingredients, stir, and re-heat in microwave. Tastes almost as good as home-made! My favorite way to cook these are in the crockpot! EDIT: Please note that I have always cooked these in the crockpot and have never baked them; I have gotten new feedback that they taste FAR BETTER if cooked in the crockpot, so this is now my only recommendation for cooking source.

    Recipe #81902

    My favorite mashed potatoes to prepare for Thanksgiving. Adapted from Taste of Home and eaten many times over the years to raves from the family. Easy to make ahead and travel with if necessary as well.

    Recipe #61736

    These potatoes are so creamy! I received the recipe from a friend at work. Cooking time includes both boiling and baking. Add 30 minutes standing time, if you refrigerate before baking.

    These meat balls go well with the Easy Low-Fat Crockpot Spaghetti Sauce. I cook these in the microwave in a steamer. This way the fat drains off. I usually rinse these a little also. This recipe came out of a want to have spaghetti and meatballs without all of the fat. These balls freeze great.

    Recipe #214727

    An easy way to prepare pizza crusts and freeze for later. Of course, you could use them immediately! I like this recipe b/c as a "single babe"... I'm mostly cooking for one these days and like being able to pull an individual-size pizza crust out of the freezer for a quick dinner... or when I have unexpected company!

    Recipe #115005

    Filling can vary--use what you have at hand. Great snack.

    Recipe #21556

    If potatoes are on sale, buy a bag and make your own frozen french fries. Prep and cooking times are approximate. The true time will depend, of course, on how many fries you make and how thick you cut them.

    Recipe #52058

    I found this one at www.stretcher.com while looking for "homemade baking mixes". This recipe comes out rich and fudgy every single time. It's also very easy to put together initially. Prep time is the time it takes to mix a full batch of brownie mix and put it in bags. Putting it in bags is not necessary, it's just something I do to make an easy thing even easier. Please Note: I have changed the Yield. It was 12 bags. I made a batch tonight and got 10 bags. In my neck of the woods, the cost of each bags-worth of mix comes to $0.53, making this the least expensive dessert in my cookbook. I arrived at this price using Hershey's cocoa.

    Recipe #116597

    This is just the way my grandma used to make it and is by far the best one-dish meal ever. My kids love it and so does my husband!

    Recipe #94393

    I started doing this to save some time in the evenings. I don't like using that 10 minute Uncle Ben's but I do like having my rice ready that fast ;O). I really like using sushi rice! Use whatever rice you prefer!
