Sticky Chicken

Juicy and flavorful, with a deep-brown chewy glaze, Sticky Chicken is a favorite Internet recipe of many families. Perfect for once-a-month cooking!

Chicken Pot-au-Feu

This rich and savory chicken stew has a beautiful golden color. Flavored with wine and fresh thyme, it complements the deeper flavors of chicken thighs and drumsticks.

This recipe, from a freezer cooking article in Sunset Magazine, is Dr. Steve Ewer's absolute favorite freezer meal. Cynthia likes it because it's tasty, thrifty, and improves in flavor when frozen!

Pair with Freezer Garlic Mashed Potatoes and add a salad for a complete--and quick!--meal.

Freezer Coleslaw

Yes, it's crisp--and freezes beautifully. Allowing the vegetables to stand with salt releases liquid that would interfere with freezing. Be sure to drain well before adding dressing!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Perfect creamy texture ... from frozen potatoes? Potatoes look watery before freezing, but the water will be absorbed as they bake. While it is possible to substitute russet potatoes, Yukon Gold potatoes yield a more flavorful dish. A Ewer family favorite!

Carrot Cake

This old standby from the 1960's freezes beautifully, frosting and all. Watching fat consumption? Replace up to half the oil with applesauce for a lighter dessert.
