  1. I love to pull things out of the freezer when I am short on time. Every single one of these looks like a winner to me. Plus I get to cook to my hearts content on the weekend to prepare for several weeks ahead. Yum!

  2. These look great! I’m new to the whole cooking frozen meals though – how would I best prepare them for dinner after they’ve been frozen?

    1. Once it’s frozen, I usually take it out the morning of, put it in the fridge and let it start to thaw. Then before dinner divide up the servings and re-heat as needed

  3. Hi Gaby! love your recipes! FYI I think the links are switched for the Skillet Chipotle enchilada bake and the chicken enchilada pasta bake.. they are backwards. 🙂 Only realized because I really want to make the skillet chipotle enchilada bake!
