What’s cooking :
When cooking for one, the freezer is your best ally. But in order to make it your friend you need to learn how to take advantage of its qualities. It doesn’t have to be a frustrating relationship or the last stop in your food’s life. I know how disappointing coming home hungry to an ice-hard meal can be and I’ve been caught throwing away a few unidentified, frozen, items myself.
But a great kitchen is an organized kitchen. And if you plan things well you’ll have meals ready to be cooked from frozen, pre-cut meats that are quick to thaw and sauces that will soften in a heart beat.
I’ve done my research, tried many things and here’s my step by step and bullet list of tips and tricks. I hope this will help you reconcile yourself with your freezer.
