What is freezer cooking?

Freezer cooking refers to the practice of cooking more than you need for a meal, and then freezing the rest for later. It can mean anything from cooking a double batch of spaghetti sauce to making an entire month's worth of meals in a single day, and freezing each entre individually for suppers over the entire month.

Freezer cooking is also referred to as Once a Month Cooking or OAMC, frozen assets, freezable meals, investment cooking, and other less-common names. But it all means the same thing.

Freezer cooking has gained popularity in recent years for many reasons. First, it is much more nutritious than cooking commercial frozen meals, ordering take out or eating fast food. Second, it is a fast alterntative for today's busy parents - between work, after school activities and other household duties, freezer meals are a great alternative.

Most freezer meals require little prep work when you cook them. Some require you to take it out of the freezer in the morning to thaw during the day. Others can simply be taken straight from the freezer to the oven.

There are many recipe books available for freezer meals, or you can easily incorporate your favorite recipes into larger batches of freezer meals.
