You can never have enough freezer meals as far as I’m concerned!  Jenny Stanger, author of Fabulous Freezer Meals, teaches you how to stock your freezer with great tasting recipes so you’ll save time and money.  Jenny has lots of reasons to make freezer meals:

  • Freezer meals are healthier than fast food and pre-packaged foods.
  • With freezer meals, you can cater to your family’s tastes, and you can determine the portion sizes yourself.
  • Freezer meals are convenient to take to friends/family who are ill or unable to cook for their family.
  • Freezer meals can save you stress and last-minute trips to the grocery store when you need to prepare a meal for company
  • Freezer meals help ensure that your family eats at least one meal together each day, which can help strengthen family relationships

Check out this video to learn more about Jenny Stanger and see how she prepares freezer pizzas for her family.

Fabulous Freezer Meals has many great tips on how to get started with freezing your dishes and includes the following chapters:

Muffins and Breads


Drinks and Popsicles

Ice Cream Cakes



Main Dishes

Vegetarian Dishes

School Lunches

Soups, Salads, and Sides


I tried two meals from Jenny’s cookbook so far.


Spicy Grilled Salmon

I’m the only one in my house that likes salmon so when I find myself alone at dinner time, I treat myself to piece of salmon.  Jenny’s recipe is so easy and delicious!  The ingredients can be found in everyone’s pantry and the fish is perfectly done in 10 minutes!


Chili and Cornbread Bake

Dave loved this dish!  He was happy to have the leftovers the next day!  I don’t love black beans as much as him, but I did enjoy this dish with a nice dollop of sour cream on the side.


You can find Jenny’s cookbooks on Amazon.com.

    Spaghetti sauce

    breaded chicken chunks (freeze on a cookie sheet and then put in freezer bags)

    I’ve never frozen a meal, but plan on beginning in the next two weeks. I’m due with my 3rd child in a little over 7 weeks and can’t wait to be prepared!

  6. 42


    I freeze lasagna rolls, soups and stews. I really would like to start freezing more. Especially since I will have 4 boys in soccer this year. In 4 different brackets. I might be a bit burnt out 😉

    I regularly make meatballs with sauce, meatloaf, mac’n’cheese and breaded chicken tenders for the freezer. I’d like to expand my cook-for-the-freezer menu. Thanks for the chance.

    I am really bad at freezing meals, I have only done it a few times, so I don’t have any favorites. Would love to have this book to get started 😉

  13. 84

    Stephanie Hirsch says

    I would love to make my own freezer breakfast burritos so my kids and husband could just heat and go in the mornings!

  14. 90

    Maureen says

    I would love to be able to make and then freeze lasagna. (my husband loves it and well it takes a long time to make it the way his mother and grandmother have in the past).

    I’ve only ever frozen lasagna before, but now that I have a deep freezer, I really want to learn more meals to freeze.

    katklaw777 says

    I like to make and freeze chili, sloppy joes and spaghetti sauce.
    The crockpot works wonderfully for all three and they freeze beautifully.

  18. 127


    Jane – thanks for introducing us to this gal. Fabulous video interview too! I love to make chicken enchiladas or meatloaf for the freezer. Would definitely want to make this pizza too.

  19. 135

    Kathleen says

    The better question would be what meals don’t I freeze? LOL I love freezer meals but my favorite is probably honey barbeque ribs.

  20. 153

    Deb W says

    I freeze “oven ready souper burgers”. They are so quick and so easy and so handy on a busy day to just heat and go!

  21. 159

    Allison says

    I freeze soups, lasagna, enchiladas, chicken pot pie, and other meals – as well as snacks like muffins, fresh berries, apple pie (or apple pie filling), breads, and my personal favorite, cookie dough balls!

  22. 160

    Valerie says

    My favorite freezer meal is enchilada casserole – this is always a yummy meal, and so easy to prepare!

  23. 173

    Teslaca says

    I like to freeze trays of chicken enchiladas. They cook up great and it’s handy to prepare them ahead of time. I also freeze big batches of soups in one quart containers.

  24. 178


    I haven’t done much freezing, but my sister and I were just talking the other day about getting together to do this a couple of times a month.

  25. 197

    Katie says

    I freeze anything I make in my crockpot (chili, lentil soup, split pea soup etc) because I somehow always make a ton! I want to learn how to freeze other food too. :)

    Tiffiny Duke says

    I currently don’t make freezer meals, but I am trying out Jenny’s Cafe Rio Sweet Pork Frozen Burritos tomorrow. The roast is on right now! So this is a meal I wish to make and I am hoping I don’t mess it up! 3tiff3@gmail.com

  27. 211

    Wendy Valdez says

    We often make extra chili so that we can freeze portions for other meals during the week. I would love to make some meat pies like my mother used to make, eat one, freeze one for later. We always enjoyed that.


  28. 220

    MelissaO says

    I typically don’t freeze meals, because I always think they’re going to taste terrible, but these look amazing! This would make my life a lot easier when I’m thinking about packing lunches…I ordinarily end up with packaged frozen meals when I don’t have leftovers.

    Lynn BB says

    I haven’t made many, but need to with my new job! I made an extra lasagna and put it in the
    freezer a couple of weeks ago.

  30. 226


    I love to make stuffed shells and stuffed peppers to freeze. The recipes usually call for more than our family will eat and I can put it in a casserole dish to reheat later. They taste just as good later! :)

  31. 232

    jengd says

    I like keeping breads in the freezer and I just put the filling for a chicken potpie in last week.

  32. 238


    We freeze twice baked potatoes. They are always handy to have around in emergencies. We also keep frozen pizza dough. Good to make extra so it is ready in a pinch.

  33. 244

    Jennifer says

    I make lasagna and cut it into single servings and freeze it. It is just as great as the night I made it. I just add a little sauce on top.

  34. 251

    Lauren says

    I have one of Jenny’s first cookbooks and I LOVE making her pot stickers. They are a HUGE hit whenever I do. I also love to freeze banana bread, muffins and cookie dough. Can you tell I love sweets?!

  35. 252

    Suz says

    I haven’t done many freezer meals because they never seem to taste as good after I freeze them. I’d love how to learn to freeze any meal correctly.

  36. 259

    Kathy Casserly says

    I would love to figure out a good chinese food recipe to freeze. The pizza recipe looks wonderful, too.

  37. 265

    Amy Hint says

    I like to make an extra lasagna casserole and freeze it. It’s great to do when company is coming!

  38. 283

    ~kim says

    Love to keep soups or soup components on hand in the freezer! And always looking for MORE freezer ideas! Coooool giveaway Jane, thank you!

  39. 291

    Darci says

    I freeze spaghetti noodles, sauce, and taco mix. I wish I could freeze fresh veggies. Don’t know how long to blanch them. 😉

    Thank you! ☺

    Terri S. says

    I like to cook in large batches so I can make freezer meals for those times when my day is too hectic to cook or I’m tired. I freeze baked ziti, lasagna, meatloaf, chicken soup, split green pea soup, tomato sauce, etc.
