• Sausage & Mushroom Rice

    This is another of those meals that stretches on the cheap because rice – which is ridiculously inexpensive – is a major player. Cook that rice ahead of time (a day or two) so it doesn’t hold up the process for this recipe AND so it’s the perfect consistency. And let your Instapot do the heavy lifting with cooking the rice: big batch style! Cooked rice freezes well and will save you down the road…promise that! Here’s how to make the perfect rice!! Then, get started on this simple, quick, delicious recipe! And double up for a freezer meal! If you haven’t already – follow me on Facebook and Instagram for other little 3…

  • Mexican Chicken Casserole

    Please don’t judge this recipe by the picture. It’s awful. I know! Getting an appropriate mouth-watering picture was a struggle (I’ll try again after it’s cooked and with any luck can do a picture update then). What you need to know is that this is not only a freezer worthy casserole but with cooked chicken (I make mine in, big batch, in the crock-pot) and rice made ahead of time (discover how I mastered the perfect rice in the instapot) in the mix you can toss it together in no time at all!

  • Beef & Black Bean Queso Burritos

    A variation to the Queso Chick with Rice and Black Beans Burritos I wrote about months ago and added to my Freezer Cooking list in preparation for Fall 2020…this recipe uses beef! This one doesn’t include rice (but could!) and isn’t made in the crock pot but it’s quick to come together in ONE PAN and freezes wonderfully.
