Expertise

My specialty is freezer cooking for expectant parents. I can answer questions about freezer cooking in general (what will/won't freeze well, how long can something be frozen for, what is a good freezer recipe for a particular ingredient or cuisine etc.) and I can also help expectant moms put together a freezer cooking plan based on their own situation (energy level, trimester etc.)

Experience in the area

I have created and tested 100s of my own freezer recipes, and I implemented a freezer cooking plan for myself during each of my three pregnancies. After the birth of my third child, I had enough freezer food stocked up to last until my daughter was nine months old.

Mayo doesn't typically freeze well, but the less of it there is, the less you'll notice any quality issues. If you make a ham salad with light mayo you may not notice a difference between the flavor of

2010-06-16 premade casserole:

Casseroles can be frozen before or after baking, though I prefer to bake them on the day I serve them. I do, however, cook many of the ingredients before freezing, which hastens the baking time. I will

2010-05-14 Freezing Macaroni salad with Miracle Whip on it.:

Dear Connie,    Thanks for your question. Anything is safe to eat after freezing, as long as it is kept at 0 F and is put in the freezer when fresh. In theory, you can keep food indefinitely in a freezer

2009-08-20 Freezing Veggies:

Hello Alex, thanks for the question. Your answer is a resounding "sort of."    Most vegetables freeze acceptably well, with exceptions being leafy greens like lettuce. But all food will lose some quality
