Rachael Ray Roundup

Because sometimes even 30 minutes is too much for me, I used to go to Dinner MyWay to get freezer meals, but they aren't cheap, so I decided I needed to start making them myself. If you're not familiar with freezer meals, check out my new favorite freezer meals cookbook - Fix, Freeze, Feast: Prepare in Bulk and Enjoy by the Serving. My favorite thing about this cookbook is that it is written based upon the bulk sizes at warehouse stores. Each recipe is for "one tray of chicken" or "one tray of pork chops." I buy one tray and make two recipes by splitting them in half.

Basically, the idea is to do all the prep beforehand, then do the cooking when you are ready to eat the entree. This is different from other freezer meal cookbooks, which often have you cook everything ahead of time. I can't deal with the changes that happen to the texture of the foods, so I prefer the Fix, Freeze, Feast method. It also avoids all those canned soups and processed stuff that is in other freezer meal cookbooks. I've tried two of the recipes and they were great. I've got two more in the freezer to try out!

Here are some Rachael Ray posts from around the blogosphere this week. If you see a post that you think would be good for the Roundup, or you write one yourself, e-mail me (everythingrachaelray at gmail dot com) so I can be sure to include it.
