I got this basic recipe from another site but changed it a little for my family. The original recipe called for orange juice as the liquid instead of milk. I also added the vanilla as we think it gives it a nice flavor.
This is my own little creation. I had a recipe for Italian roll ups that I got from a once a month cookbook. I just changed it to taco style as my children love anything with a Mexican flavor. These freeze well. I use my own homemade whole wheat bread instead of the frozen bread dough.
I got this from a OAMC website. My family loves it and you can use any kind of jam or preserves. Blackberry, raspberry, peach, basically whatever you like. This works well with the fruit only preserves also. This is good served with noodles or rice to soak up the sauce.
I'm not sure where I got this recipe but it is very good. I usually throw some chicken breasts in a ziploc bag and add this marinade and then freeze. All I have to do for a quick meal is thaw and toss on the grill. This makes enough marinade for about 1-1.5 pounds of chicken breasts. Cooking time reflects marinating time.
This recipe comes from the cookbook "Don't Panic - Dinner's in the Freezer" . It is really delicious. Good with crusty bread and a green salad. I must admit to using the pre-cooked bacon crumbles (about 1/2 cup) instead of cooking and crumbling the bacon. Sometimes it is just easier! Make sure it is real bacon though, not the imitation bacon bits! Enjoy.
This is from a OAMC website. These are delicious and my kids LOVE these in their lunchboxes. I put them in frozen in the morning and they thaw nicely by lunchtime. Note: I have experimented with reducing the sugar in this recipe and find it works very well. I usually make a double batch and only added 1/3 cup sugar instead of 1 cup. They came out perfect - just the right amount of sweetness.
This is one of my daughter's favorite meals. We use chicken, the original recipe called for pork shoulder. This freezes very well. For an even quicker dinner, precook and freeze the rice in a separate baggie. If making and serving on the same night. Allow 45 minutes for the meat to marinate.
This recipe is SOO good! It came from the "BBQ USA" cookbook with a few modifications. They list it as an appetizer but I have also served the shrimp with a salad as a meal. My seven year old even requested this for his birthday dinner last week! Cooking time reflects marinating time. Yield is an estimate. It depends on if you serve this as an appetizer or main dish.
This is the way I make my chicken nuggets. My kids love these and I try to keep some on hand in the freezer for quick snacks and meals. The technique came from the 30 day gourmet cookbook. This is an estimate on the crumbs. I normally do a whole bunch of chicken at once and just kind of eyeball the amounts.
The original recipe for this came from Joan Lunden's Healthy Cooking. I've changed a couple things to our tastes. This is a very moist,delicious meat loaf. Its my favorite. I leave the topping off as my family doesn't care for it.
This mix is a big hit with my kids. I make it and portion it into individual baggies and then place in a larger freezer ziploc bag and store in the freezer. They can grab a bag whenever and it stays fresher in the freezer. Got this off a OAMC website.
This comes from a oamc book called "Fix, Freeze, Feast" and is really delicious! Its one of my favorite Thai type dishes and I usually serve it on top of fresh spinach leaves (for me) and on steamed rice (for DH & kiddos) . This is meant as a OAMC dish so it uses a large package of chicken such as you would purchase at a warehouse store. This makes 3 entrees and each entree serves 4-6 people.
This recipe came from my grandmother. The directions are for baking in the oven, but I have done these in the crock pot as well as they turn out great. These are really good with mashed potatoes. A great comfort food meal. Easy and delicious!
