  • What’s the point to freeze “healthy meals” when you use tomato paste, cans and other processed foods to begging with? I mean… aren’t cans and jars already saving you time? I guess I need to look somewhere else.

  • Thanks for the recipes, they all look so yummy! Question: For the cornbread chili you say in the video 400 and in the recipe 350. Which one is it? I also wondered what size dish you use? Thanks!

  • Great tips indeed! But what I have noticed is you are using so much one time usage plastic:(. Please try to avoid it or use re-usable meal boxes. We waist so much plastic these days. And also those folie baking plates..
    You only use them once and then throw them away. It is not sustainable ❤ but other tips were great, thank you!

  • ha ha ha ha.. you had me on tip #1… make meals you actually like! That is soooo funny! and so true! I think I have things in there that are still there! LOL oh dear… That was a great tip with the container too! Never thought of that! But.. I have now! LOL…. Great video! Elizabeth

  • Hi! I just started to watch all you video. I really enjoy watching them. You don’t have a Filipino accent. Do you speak French? I’m American Filipino in San Diego. I ❤️ the French language. Im learning to speak French.and Italian. Lani

  • The cheesey potato casserole and the Chicken parmesan baked ziti look good. The other three? ����
    Looks like something a small child came up with when their parents “let the make dinner”. Especially that last one. NONE of that goes together. Ick!

  • This is a great idea, you’re a wonderful mommy! I think I will try the cookie bites for my granddaughter. I don’t mean to criticize, but I find the music really repetitive and annoying. I had to mute it and then turn it back up when you were talking. Sorry, I think you’re really sweet and cute and do a great job!

  • Can we freeze most of the other dinner recipes you’ve done if we let it cool completely? Going to make big batches of cooking on the weekend and have meals ready for the next week at uni.

  • Honestly? I hope nobody cooks this on a regular basis as it is mostly fat and carbs…

    It might be tasty but it is far from a healty diet.

  • I watch Rie make some amazing things on this channel and it makes me like this channel more every time. Then I see videos like this and I wonder if I’m watching the same channel.

  • I have a family of 4…2 boys 14 &16..LOOOOOOOORD they can eat!!!!
    The reason i was looking into prepping dinner/meals because I get home too late and I’m tired. I eas cooking almost every day even if I got home late. IT STOPS NOW!!!��

    I started looking for containers to use to ho from the freezer to the microwave…what was safe….what was durable…how long will the meals stay fresh..etc…So you now have a new subie ����.

    I will be taking my journey thru your videos today to learn more.
    Thank you

  • I added the onions and garlic with the green bell pepper let that cook. I then added corn, kidney beans, rice, oregano, salt and pepper.

  • the issue here is that she’s so restrictive about what she does that she would likely stab you in the spine if you contradicted anything she says or does. sure, very efficient.. extremely efficient.. ive worked with your type before. And now, if everything goes perfectly for you, all is well. And if not, you purchase gun licence, and research bomb making, and then you go postal. No thank you. Nut baller. Please smoke a cigarette and drink a martini. For humanity. Please, 70% of all humanity has done both. You’re the outlier. The anomaly. The freak. But I have saved your video, because I want to be the median. The peacemaker between the freaks like you, and the ones that you judge so so so harshly

  • But, why no from-frozen directions if the video title says “freezer friendly”? Wouldn’t the ceramic or glass pans break if going from the freezer to a hot oven? I’ll admit, casseroles aren’t my specialty, but I’d hoped this video could teach me a few tricks as advertised in the title. ��‍♀️

  • Another tip to AVOID freezer burn…the rule I learned is cook, completely cool, and then freeze…any heat in the food while covered will cause condensation inside the dish which then turns to ice when frozen!

  • It’s really obvious that you just got random recipes and slapped on a title.. because you didn’t even show how to freeze/thaw the meal. and WHO is freezing pasta.

  • These look delicious! So tempting to put ALL my casserole dishes in the freezer for 4 months…but sometimes I need those dishes to make a quick frittata or pan of brownies or breakfast popover. 

    Watching this, I was thinking that you could do a video about how to make chicken stock from those rotisserie chicken bones. (In the crockpot. With leftover parsley and other vegetables.) I do that all the time, but I’ll bet your other viewers might appreciate it.

  • Hey tasty,

    I just want to point out that Walmart is selling out of date cupcake decoration kit. I’m very very sad that they don’t even care about the expiration date.

    Your dear, Fan

  • Cauliflower? Can i use potatos?
    I look on u tube resipe books and couldent find buthing on freezer meals thanks so much u make my life easier

  • I enjoy watching your videos. I will try these prep meals. We both work and sometimes have little tine to prepare food. Thanks a a lot!

  • Hi Sara Lynn! Question, would the food be prone to freezer burn with it sitting in the freezer for 4-6 months with only a foil wrapping?

  • Hi! I found your channel this summer, and I’m so glad I did! Especially love your meal prep videos�� I wonder, how was the cauli mash after you took if out of the freezer? I froze cauliflower soup ones, and it didn’t turn out well. Had a strange consistency. I would love to try you mash, it looks great! ��

  • Definitely going to do those breakfast burrito type things one morning for my Sister and Grandma. Maybe tomorrow, because we have all the ingredients.
    Where did you get your Red Bosch Machine at? That is sooooooooo neat.

  • We use toaster bags (available on Amazon) to reheat the egg sandwiches and other reheatable things, like sandwiches and even french fries, etc.

  • I love the idea of freezer meal prepping but then I saw how much shit you used that would end up in a landfill and I was like…”nah” I’ll deal with washing my casserole dish.

  • Sometimes you put the garlic in at the beginning with the onions, sometimes you add it after all veggie/meat… how do you decide?

  • Hi Sarah Lynn!! Thank you for the shepherds pie recipe! I made it for thanksgiving today and I was so surprised! I didn’t miss the potato crust at all! Definitely making this again for Christmas!! ��

  • As far as freezer burn is concerned. I make meals and freeze them in light weight cheap throwaway containers lined with cling wrap and leave a little extra so you can lift it out of the container. Be sure the size of the freezer container will allow the frozen meal to get placed into the vacuum sealer bag. I usually buy the kind of bag that can be cut to the size you need, vac seal them up and return it to the freezer. As she said be sure and mark what the contents are and date them.

  • Pretty much all food is freezer friendly lol. I store leftovers and foods for my meal prep in the freezer all the time and they taste fine

  • I was so confused to start with when you were making the pigs in blankets. In the uk pigs in blankets are little sausages wrapped in bacon you have at roast dinners. We call your pigs in blankets sausage rolls. I love learning about the different names for things

  • Your pronunciation of Wustershire was perfect I’m from Manchester, England. I know these things. Theres also some debate amongst Brtis about, whether or not Shepherds pie should be with beef, because a shepherds wouldn’t eat their own lambs. I don’t really care as long as it tastes good!:D

  • Would you be able to show, ways on how to do poke bowl dressings/sauce?,I think it’s the sauce that make it taste good. Thank you��

  • Thank you, Kate! Super helpful. You’re right, I’ve been kinda nervous about this are. I like the tip about lining the baking dish with plastic wrap for easy extraction later. Good one! Thanks again, I’ll certainly be stopping back.

  • Hey there! Question: I love your channel and have a question on substitution for your corn bread on top of the chili in this recipe as I can no longer have corn. What would give me that delicious crusted topping-potatoes? Help!!!

  • Love these videos. Also, must say your new hair color looks gorgeous. Just makes your pretty face come alive. Cory is a lucky man to have a beautiful caring wife��

  • I appreciated all of the tips in this video; juggling as many things as I do I can see the value of making freezer meals ahead of time-it’ll save so much time and not just money (BUT not to say that THAT isn’t important, too, ROFL).

  • Can you please include how you reheat and how long you safely keep in refrigerator? Curious in relation to breakfast burrito wraps? Great video.

  • Just moved the London; waiting for uni to start loved your back to school videos!! (But I’m more intrigued with freezer meals cause when uni starts; there aint any time to cook HAHA)

  • tasty i’m begging you, please, for the love of god… post a recipe compilation that doesn’t involve dairy products. i’m so lactose intolerant that even watching these recipes makes my stomach hurt

  • Great tips, Karrie! What is the best way to remove air from the packaging? Also, love your ideas about creating freezer meals for smaller families. Thank you!:)

  • Hi Sara these recipes are delicious especially the chilli chicken bake keep creating more freezer meal videos they are great ��������

  • Thanks for watching my freezer meals for beginners video on how to get started! Leave a comment below if you have any questions or other awesome tips to share.

  • Your recipes look great, although I would be very leery to take any cookware out of the freezer and immediately put into a hot oven. I think that’s just asking for trouble.

  • Yaaayy! I’m so glad that I find you. I love freezer meal videos you gave me so many ideas. Thanks for showing me how to use the tool to mash the cauliflower. Thanks new subscriber ��

  • I really love all the freezer meals for the week that you have posted. They are all SO good and are saving my work week life. More of these please!

  • All 3 look so delicious and unique! As a single person, I like to have access to single servings. Do you have advice about how to portion these into single servings before freezing?

  • The first batch turned out great but the frozen batch never cooked the corn bread on top properly….im disappointed! never going to freeze meals again……unless someone here has any tips…pls help!
    PS: I had defrosted it overnight in the fridge before popping it in the oven for lunch

  • Your Sheppard’s pie sounds and looks divine. My hubby is diabetic and can’t have all the carbs so I am always looking for recipes for him.

  • Thank you for the tips, I have a baby on the way and want to try having meals ready. This makes me feel more confident on getting started soon.

  • There is alot of parchment paper in the freezer prep, we have eliminated that by just using a couple of silpat silicone mats for baking and flash freezing. They are super easy to clean, and I just store them vertically between our cookie sheets for ease of storage.

  • OMG the amount of cheese in every video is staggering!
    I’ll start looking and think “ hey this looks good” and then at least two types of cheese is dumped in and I immediately go off it….

  • I really love your channel, newly subscribed. Is there any way to know how many calories or an approximate on these three meals…just curious…keep up the good work ��

  • No the glass baking pans won’t break….they will SHATTER into billions of tiny shards of glass (Pyrex specifically) you will have glass EVERY WHERE because it literally explodes and goes flying everywhere!!! Yes…i know from experience…my boyfriend decided to run an extremely hot Pyrex baking pan under freezing cold water about a year ago and once in a while I will find a shard or chunk of that glass A WHOLE YEAR LATER because that’s how serious it was…and I won’t even get started on the glass that ended up in the garbage disposal!!! Ugh lol GREAT TIPS BTW I’m new to freezer meals and I’m excited to get started…just wanted to put my 2 cents in about the hot to cold cold to hot baking pan tip!!! ��

  • I love your recipes for batch cooking! Have you seen and how it instantly doubles usable freezer storage space? It just launched at the Fort Lauderdale Home Show

  • Can you make more videos like this, or of any of your recipes are freezable could you mention it. It would be greatly appreciated.

  • So glad he’s actually using reusable pouches and not ziploc bags. Such a great example on how to reduce waste and your plastic usage.

  • These have to be the most tasteless meals. Too many people making “recipes” based upon how well they look on FILM and not by taste. Salt isn’t a spice. Color doesn’t make food taste good. Mmmohmygawd.

  • This video answers SO many questions I had! I love all of the tips! I would love a video on what foods don’t freeze well or to watch you make Instant Pot Freezer Meals. It still makes me nervous!

  • love the recipes, but a question… after taking them out of the freezer, do you wait for them to thaw or put them directly in the oven as is??

  • You’re my sister from another mister girl! Lmao….I love you! Thank you so much for these freezer meal ideas. Now….gimme some more!

  • Hi! I’m a new subscriber because of this video! I have wanted to try freezer meals for awhile and this video makes me feel a bit more confident to get started. I would love it if you could help me grow my channel by subscribing!

  • I am a fan of Food Saver vacuum packaging or like. Another thing is to pull a vacuum on refrigerated foods that you use a lot of. I buy dry black beans, soybeans, lentils, peas, pressure cook them and then store them in mason jars that I pull a vacuum on AND pack them still while hot so to increase the shelf life. But for regular used items, you can pull a vacuum with your Food Saver on your foods you keep in jars with special “vacuum seal” universal lids and food will not spoil nearly as fast.

  • just made the shepards pie…. SO INCREDIBLE! me and my boyfriend are now obsessed and will make this all the time and totally be sharing with our friends:D THANK YOU!!

  • Freezer meal prep is the way to go if you have 1 full-time job, a part-time job, 2 kids, don’t like cafeteria food and not fun of junk food. Been doing it for decades….it’s the way I survived and made my life easier being a working mother with 2kids and making sure my kids eat healthy and mostly filipino food. They are now 25 & 23yrs old and they do appreciate home cooking/filipino food.

  • I had to modify your recipe for Stuffed Pepper Casserole. I didn’t have any ground turkey or chicken, just breakfast sausage and ground beef so I used beef stock and brown rice. It turned out great!!! When I go to the supermarket next week I will pick up some pork stock and maybe try a breakfast version of this. And I did have a Green Chili that I added.

  • We tried the stuffed pepper casserole tonight and my husband loved it!! I will freeze half of it for later.  The addition of smoked paprika gave it an extra special touch.  Thanks so much!!

  • You have the best meal prep videos on YouTube! Loved everything in this video and want to meal prep more thanks to you! Those small tortilla things looks yummy, my kids will love them!

  • I cant have worstershire sauce coz of gluten. Whats a good alternative pls. How do u freeze it for one serving? We have not had luck with freezing stew ect

  • Wow..if they really are healthy or at least maintain their natural vitamins benefits and stuff, then it’s the best for busy mom out there..

  • You can do frozen quesadilla style things with corn tortillas but I find whenever folding them it’s best to run them through hot oil for just a few seconds first so they are pliable and won’t crack the outside is soft like an enchilada or something if microwaved but crispy in the oven or air fryer

  • I’m Ciliac myself and I absolutely love your channel. But here in Norway it’s so expensive to live gluten free. $9 for a pound of cocunut flour, $8 for one loaf of bread. Anyway. Love your videos. Hugs from Norway.

  • Can you do a series on crockpot meals? I find a lot of crockpot meals that have to cook for 4-6 hours but work 8-9 hr shifts that makes it hard.

  • anyone got any good recommendations of ways to do this sustainably… like what tubs are the best? just don’t really want to be creating so much waste if i do this at uni.

  • Definitely not keto friendly but some of them can be changed up to be keto friendly…I’ve loss over 100 lbs in a year not going back

  • I am so glad you did this video! I am a homeschooling mother of 6 children and am going to start freezer cooking to make things a lot easier for me. I literally took notes while watching this video and I just subscribed! Thank you for sharing!

  • Thank you so much for these!!! I work long hours and I’m trying to finish my masters degree, what involves my boyfriend attempting to cook a couple nights a week. Lets just stay most times he cooks we end up in ordering in. ��

  • I love watching these videos and it gives me a lot of inspiration, but at the same time I feel like if I tried to do this particular meal prep it would probably take me 3-4 hours, not just two. I can’t imagine doing all the stuff in each of those steps in only 10-15 minutes!

  • Ok I’m not gonna lie…as a student with little money I clicked on this video with a lot of excitement and anticipation. Since then I have concluded 2 things:

    1) Holy feck I do not have the money to buy half of these ingredients.
    2) I made a tortilla based lasagne a while ago as I didn’t have any lasagne sheets in my flat and was just trying to put something together that I could eat for a few days. Now although it was edible and surprisingly better than expected, I can tell you now that it is not worth your time deliberately doing it if you have the option not to, i.e. do not make the fecking bean casserole. It makes me genuinely sad to see what I did at 2am in desperation as the basis for a recipe on Tasty ��

    10/10 would recommend other things I’ve done though like bacon and mushroom lasagne (hence the lack of lasagne sheets), bodged bolognese using tinned tomatoes, beef stock and herbs worked well and was done in 10 mins and last but not least Moroccan rice i.e. rice, tinned chickpeas that were reduced and spices.

    Good luck to all fellow students out there and may the lords of the reduced section of your local supermarket look mercifully upon you ��

  • Why is it that (nearly?) all dishes include cheese, meat and are baked? Doesn’t seem that creative to me besides the facts that it’s not healthy and sustainable…

  • So I have been making the Breakfast quesadilla for awhile is what I do is fill the entire tortilla and lay another one on top. I got tired of struggling with keeping them folded and then I heat them up and cut in half for my kiddos. Just an idea! I’m all about making life easier.

  • Try doing your breakfast quesadillas in a sandwhich press, I find it quick because I can put multiple in and have the heat push down helps it’s fold nicely and the heat on both sides means half the toasting time �� love your videos

  • Great video! I love following you on Pinterest and YouTube. I have recently purchased your book and I really enjoy your intro with all your tips and supplies. I use your freezer meals with my meal planning. I am getting ready to post a video on freezer meals and I am going to provide a review on your book. Thanks for the tips!

  • i love the recipes but im sorry….. that emphasis on the “I” in cauliflower is like a nail on a chalkboard to me. XD but ill be eating good lol

  • Since you cook most nights too, would you consider showing us how you meal plan/what you eat in a week? I understand it would be a lot of work to film and edit, but if be happy to just watch you talking through and adding pictures of short clips!

  • Great day!I already tried the MacroBOwl and thank you for sharing the techniques…where could I share the pictures of my MacroBowls as inspired by you!Congratulations for the 2M mark subscribers!!!

  • Your videos could be better, it’s more of an entertainment and a good cinematic style rather than instructional, like other “cooking shows”. I think to be successful in trying to get your audience to really try your recipes, it would be nice to provide details of your recipe or atleast mention ingredients and proportions.

  • If your pressure cooker has a yogurt function you can proof bread in in there. Spray your pressure cooker with cooking spray, throw your dough in, put either the glass lid or regular lid on and walk away. The yogurt setting is the perfect temp to proof bread.

  • Does the cottage pie and where’s the gravy? I lived in the UK for 15 years and I’m tired of hearing cottage pie called shepherd’s pie and not having gravy. Yes shepherd’s pie is made with lamb Shepherds herd sheep.

  • You have quite the echo in your kitchen and makes it hard to hear you. Maybe when you do it tutorial you could pick a different room perhaps something with carpet cut down on your Echo

  • Love all these great ideas for food prep, Addie! I always look forward to your videos! ��

    Unless I’m missing it, I don’t see a link for that measuring cup.

  • I made the turkey/pepper dish. It was sooooo good. Much more flavor than I expected and we couldn’t even taste the turkey flavor because of the tomatoes. Thank you for sharing!

  • Just came in my mound. When temperature goes down, molecules contract. After cooking it in shock, it’s like stretching the fibers (molecules) of meaaaaaat.

  • You are a beautiful woman, thank you so much for these freezing for dummies video. You answered every question that popped up on my head! ��

  • These recipes sound so good! Definitely going to try them out!

    I absolutely hate cooking and trying to figure out what to make for dinner really stresses me out so what I do is I don’t “meal prep” either. I have a stash of freezer meals in my freezer that I rotate and every week I cook only on Saturday and Sunday.

    Each time I make a meal, I make enough for 2 extras. One gets eaten fresh and 2 go in the freezer for later. Monday-Thursday I pull something from the freezer and Friday is eating out or leftovers (if we’re going to be eating out then we eat leftovers for lunches). This way I don’t have to spend all day in the kitchen and I don’t have to cook during the week. Every week we contribute 4 new meals to the freezer and pull 4 out. We rotate everything so nothing goes bad and during the week we have options and can eat just whatever sounds good.

  • Really helpful. I’ve been waiting for this kind of recipes because it’s so hard for me to cook and cook. And it’s really hard to think what kind of meal I’m gonna prepare.. Thanks Erwan❤️

  • I grew up with beef in Shepard’s pie. Not a cauliflower fan, so will stick with potatoes. Also, we always added a layer of cheese on top (yummy). Loving your recipes.

  • oh my God, i love your receipes!! thank you so much for sharing healthy meals, it helps me a lot to find ideas to mel prep and to follow my weightloss journey

  • I NEED THAT BOOK! Just a quick question, if you are freezing in quart jars, how much “head space” should you leave? I’m concerned about too much and getting the freezer burn issue or not enough and breaking the jar or something. Perhaps freezer bags are easier in the end LOL

  • That cauli mash is such a good idea! What did you sprinkle on the fish before doing the crumbing process? Also great tip about the pork rinds as crumb!

  • As a twist on the creamy mash, I love to infuse some garlic clove in warm milk (dairy or non dairy, as you prefer) on the stove until the garlic is falling apart. Some garlic paste will do the trick as well. Then mix the infused milk and some broth (veggie or chicken) in the vegetable mash. If it’s too runny, just stir on a medium high heat until the liquid is absorbed. And mix a hint of butter, just for the beauty of it.

  • When u cook the shep pie add a sprinkle of cheese on top of the “mash” and when u added the cauliflower use a fork to form them lines;)

  • Thanks for the recipes Erwan! I tried the Peanut Satay Curry and it’s soooo rich and delicious! My husband loved it and said he never tasted a dish like that before!:) I’ll try beef broccoli tomorrow!

  • Can we make the Sheppard’s Pie with Mashed Potato Topping instead of the Cauliflower Topping?

    I personally like mashed Cauliflower but unfortunately the rest of my family does not like it at all which is why I am wondering if I can use the Potato instead. I definitely want to make this dish and freeze it but I’m not sure if you are able to freeze mashed potatoes on the top or should I just make the meat part and prepare the mashed potato Topping fresh while the meat is thawing before putting in the oven?

  • Absolutely loved it. I was searching for freezer meal ideas as I have started living alone and left with no time to cook an elaborate meal after work. Please do share some more ideas.

  • Definitely trying the stuffed pepper one! I just made a sour cream noodle bake separated it into dishes and froze one. Super nice for school. Thank you!

  • Hi there love you meal prep vids. In NZ pigs in a blanket are when you use streaky bacon to wrap the sausage rather than dough. Maybe give it a go sometime, delicious and gluten free!

  • While I enjoy these videos, can we get some freezer friendly meal prep that does not include that much dairy, pasta and greasy stuff?

  • Thanks for sharing this! I’m a very busy mom of 2 and this is a good idea to cut my food prep time. I’m doing this soon. Just have to buy those pouches.
