One of the most common questions that I get is, “How do I turn my recipe into a freezer recipe?”  Today, I’m answering that question on the blog, Money Saving Mom.  Money Saving Mom is full of info to help moms “balance it all,” and I’m honored to be featured as a guest poster.

How to turn a regular recipe into a freezer recipe

Dear Kelly,
Have you tried freezing anything with coconut milk as one of the ingredients? I found a good crockpot recipe for a curry.
Thanks!
