    Our food bill is OUT-OF-CONTROL and your links are over flowing with great recipes, strategies and ideas. I’m a teacher, and over winter break I’m going to pour over this and fill up our freezer. THANKS!

    Thank you!! I’m so excited, we were just given a nice freezer for FREE (yay) and I was really hoping for one as our side by side freezer just doesn’t fit very much. This will help us to continue to try and be more frugile. Thanks for all the tips and links. I’ve already looked at some and can’t wait to go to some more!

    It would be helpful if any broken links were deleted rather than struck-through. 🙂 Then I don’t spend time figuring out if they really don’t work or what the deal is.

    Actually, a lot of these links do not work anymore.

    What a fantastic collection of Freezer Love! Thank you so much for putting together this amazing compilation. I’ll be sharing it with my followers.

    I’m attempting to get ahead with my cooking by stocking up my big deep freezer with meals and baked treats. I’ve had the pressure cooker going almost every day and will be setting up the slow cooker tomorrow. Can’t wait to check out the recipes you’ve included here.
