Make your life easier by stocking your freezer for the holidays! These recipes can be used as gifts from the kitchen and also lighten your load when entertaining.
It's officially November! And with that, we feel ready to start thinking about the holiday season. We believe that a gift you can give to your future self at this time of year is stocking your freezer. That way you can focus on the Reason for the season as well as special aspects of the holidays; enjoying the important people in your life, creating memories, celebratory meals, trimming the tree, holiday baking, setting a festive table or whatever you love to do.
We've rounded up a collection of delicious recipes that freeze well. There are jams and cookies that are perfect for gift-giving as well as breads and soups to pull out on a busy day and feed your family. Hopefully, this provides some inspiration for making your freezer work for you during this busy season!
