FreezEasy Meal Plans: 10 Freezer Meals in less than an hour!

FreezEasy About

I have designed these new FreezEasy meal plans with you…a fellow busy home chef…in mind. The goal is to make 10 to 12 meals for your freezer in less than one hour. It takes a specific type or style of recipe and meal to make it possible to put 10 meals together and into the freezer that fast. I’ve designed these new pre-set freezer cooking meal plans with that goal in mind.

I want you to be able to get 10 meals into your freezer without spending all afternoon or all day in the kitchen.

All of the recipes in the FreezEasy meal plans require very minimal prep. Just load up all the bags with the ingredients and freeze them. Then you can take the meal you want, thaw it partially in the fridge overnight or in a bowl of warm water on the counter for 20 minutes, and drop all the ingredients into the slow cooker, Dutch oven, skillet or baking dish.

There are 8 different plans to choose from at this time including:

  • All Chicken Recipes Plan
  • All Ground Beef Recipes Plan
  • All Pork Chops Recipes Plan
  • Combo #1 Plan
  • Trio of Meats Plan
  • Freezer to Slow Cooker
  • All Grill Recipes
  • All Skillet Recipes

Plus, we have 2 different bundles (save 30%) and a brand new 20 meals meal plan!

See all the details and recipes included for the FreezEasy Meal Plans here!

Raspberry Crescent Rolls

Raspberry Crescent Rolls

I think this photo speaks for these rolls. I don’t need to go into how amazing they are. How perfectly sweet, tart and creamy they are. I think you can tell by looking at them.

I will however show you how simple it is to make them!

Here’s a little peak at how these come together…then it’s your turn to print the recipe and make them for your people!

IMG_9463

3 small bowls to mix up the cream cheese filling, the raspberry filling and the icing.

IMG_9462

Lay out the crescent roll dough.

IMG_9461

Add a dollop of the raspberry mixture and spread around.

IMG_9460

Add dollop of cream cheese and spead around in the center of the roll.

IMG_9459

Roll them up.

It’s okay if it’s a little messy. This is why we are baking on parchment.

IMG_9458

Once baked, douse them in the icing. Yes, douse them. Or a little drizzle is fine too.

We doused them…because that’s how we like our sweet rolls!

Note: There is a print link embedded within this post, please visit this post to print it.

Borracho Beans with Chorizo Sausage ~ Cinco de Mayo Recipe

Borracho Beans with Chorizo on 5DollarDinners.com

You want to know how I’m planning on surviving the teenage years without spending $8,000 a month of food (yes, I’m exaggerating!)???

This pot of beans right here.

Specifically, I plan on making lots and lots and lots and lots of rice and beans over the years.

Because it’s cheap. And it’s filling. And all of my boys will polish their plates when they are loaded with tex-mex food.

I can already envision just leaving a pot of beans on simmer in the kitchen all afternoon and evening and they can come and help themselves whenever their hollow leg gets hollow again.

So let’s talk about borracho beans.

Once upon a time, I spoke Spanish. (I still know quite a bit!) So when I made these beans the other night, I was really rolling the rrrrrrrr’s in the word borracho. The boys were giggling at me and then my husband chimed in with…

What does borracho mean anyways?

Drunk beans, was my reply.

And more giggles from the other boys, who understand what that means, followed by forced giggles from the younger two, who were just following along.

My husband said, seriously? Why are they drunk beans?

I figured that if he didn’t know this, then maybe you don’t either.

“Drunk beans” are beans cooked with alcohol. Basically, you take a typical “charro beans” recipe and add some alcohol to make the beans ‘drunk.’

There are 2 options to make these beans get buzzed and then drunk…Mexican beer or tequila. (Mexican beers to look out for in your store: Negra Modelo, Dos Equis, Corona, Tecate. If you use tequila, cheap stuff is just fine.)

The alcohol just adds a great depth of flavor, but if you don’t wish to include it…the “Charro” beans are delicious too!

Typically, charro beans are made with bacon or ham, but I’ve made these with chorizo sausage. It has more flavor than bacon or ham…a different kind of flavor. If you can’t find chorizo sausage at your store or don’t love the spicy/smokey chorizo flavor, use little pieces from 4 slices of bacon instead!

One last note, I used poblano peppers in these beans because they are a milder spicy pepper. (How’s the for an oxymoron!) Green peppers would have no spice at all, poblano peppers would have a tiny bit of spice (it’s really not that much after they slow cook all day!), serrano peppers a little more and jalapeno peppers even more. Just use whatever pepper you prefer!
