Freezer Meal Prep for Postpartum (Recipes and Lists!)

motherhood Jul 05, 2023

 I didn't think freezer prep was a win for our family for a long time. My problems with it? 

#1: We don't love casseroles

#2: I didn't have a giant freezer to store all the meals

#3: I like things that taste . . . fresh. Not crockpot after crockpot.

But over the years I have learned a few ways to make freezer cooking work for us! Including some recipes that I ONLY make ahead and bake straight from frozen now (hello flaky biscuits that are JUST as flaky and buttery-soft as the day they were made). 

Below are the freezer meals I specifically prepped for this postpartum season with Baby #5! If I have a recipe link, you'll see the recipe highlighted where you can go and make the same thing. These are some of our family favorites . . . 

Check back soon, because we are working on finishing writing out all these recipes!
