While I have eaten many pre-made frozen dinners, I was a little skeptical about how my homemade food would keep in the freezer. After tasting some ham and mac and cheese that my mother froze which kept its flavor, I decided to give it a try. So far so good...my sausage and peppers tasted fine and so did my sloppy joes! I haven't frozen any chicken or turkey yet, or anything that wasn't immersed in a sauce. Going to give it a try and see what happens, because I could definitely appreciate the time savings that comes along with this.

I do big batch cooking, divide it into serving size portions, and freeze. I always have frozen dinners on hand. I see no difference having these or buying frozen dinners. It is cheaper and I know what's in them.
I already do several of the tips for cooking big batches of meals. In my house we eat lots of leftovers. It really does save time. For the people who say they don't eat left overs, most microwave foods are cooked and then frozen. Then you buy it and reheat it.
