Kelly from New Leaf Wellness shows you how to make 6 Crockpot Freezer Meals in 30 Minutes.
And here’s yet another great freezer cooking post! New Leaf Wellness shows you how to prep six freezer meals in an hour.
I’m f-i-n-a-l-l-y getting around to telling you about my very successful one-hour freezer cooking session that I did recently.
So this Peppermint Skinny Chocolate was a winner. I was kind of hesitant about how it would turn out, but I followed the recipe exactly — including the tips the blog suggested — and it was delicious. In fact, it was so good that I was tempted to literally lick the bowl out. Instead, I scraped it clean (see above).
If you are looking for a delicious and healthy chocolate recipe, I recommend this Peppermint Skinny Chocolate.
I cut it in small pieces and stored it in the freezer and it’s the perfect treat on a hot day!
Next up, I made a batch of Homemade Energy Bites. These are the snack of choice for my kids this summer. And I love it that they are packed with pretty healthy ingredients.
One batch lasts the three kids about a week. But I can’t always keep up with the demand, so Kathrynne asked me if she could learn how to make them, too. See pictures of how her batch turned out here.
And while I was busy making Skinny Chocolate and Energy Bites, the guys were whipping up a batch of Whole-Wheat Pancakes.
I love baking and cooking together in the kitchen as a family. And now that we’ve overhauled our lifestyle with the move to TN, it’s becoming a fairly regular occurrence around here — which is so much fun!
Here’s a little peek into my recent One-Hour Freezer Cooking session…
I browned a massive pan of ground beef and onions. And kind of chose a pan that was too small. Whoops!
While the ground beef was browning, I put everything in the crockpot for the Slow Cooker Cowboy Beans. These were so simple and easy to make!
And the ground beef was finally done. Yikes! I made a MESS on the stove!
I had planned to make Million Dollar Spaghetti, but I was running short on time and I didn’t want to turn on the oven because the house was already so hot, so I decided to just boil the noodles, add a jar of pasta sauce to some of the ground beef, and make spaghetti for dinner.
Er, maybe I was just lazy? Well, I’m going with the fact that the house was too hot to turn on the oven. Yup, that’s my story.
While everyone was getting dinner on their plates and getting situated at the table (which always seems to take a LONG time!), I dumped everything in a bowl for the Homemade Energy Bites.
And then I quickly rolled these in balls and stuck them in the freezer. Well, after we did a little taste-testing.
