      1. I tried to use Ziplist when creating a menu, but it didn’t put all of the ingredients in there. Did I do something wrong? I just had to go in and do an old-fashion cut and paste! Which worked because I needed to double and triple some of the recipes for two families. BTW… I LOVE your website!!!!

        1. Amanda, hmm, that is odd. I will have to check it out myself. In the past, they have populated on their own. I will see if we need to do some updates.

  1. What!?! Thank you so much for this list. I’m typically a lurker here because I’m still a little afraid of bulk cooking. But I’ve been keeping my eye out for some new summer recipes (I roasted a chicken yesterday…it was 95 degrees…blech) and this is perfect. I’m bookmarking it!

    1. So glad you stopped lurking Julia! You should try starting out with a mini menu – there is a mini grilling menu even. Either way, we are glad you are here and like the list.

  2. wow. amazing. thank you. i love this site! school is out and i just never know what to cook. i love bread bread bread. one cant live on bread alone

  3. OMG!!!! Where to start. Due to life OAMC has taken a backside. Dinner is a scramble every nightq. Maybe I’ll to some small. Batch yo get re-started. Now what to choose?

  4. Thanks for this great list! I have been freezer cooking for sometime and have been rotating the same favourites. Time to change it up!! I will be featuring this on my page for sure!

  5. What happened to the recipe for Spicy-sweet Pork Tacos? I made it before and wanted to do it again, but I can’t find the recipe.

  6. I am strongly considering trying out some of these freezer meals. Been wanting to do this for quite some time just haven’t taken the leap to do it. However, I seem to be struggling with if the recipes are already doubled or if I need to double them?? The math just isn’t working out. Recipe states 2 gallon bags, however the meat (when divided) would only be a pound per bag, yet it is supposed to feed 6 people.

    1. Hey, Julie, the recipes as you’re seeing them are not already doubled. Whatever the recipe says the serving size is – that is correct. For members, recipes are already doubled. If you have more questions about membership – please feel free to pop into chat in the bottom right-hand corner! We’d love to have you join our community!

  7. I recently received an email with this list. I was excited to click over and check out the recipes. But most of the ones I clicked on took me to a page that says “Oops!” I don’t want to have to search for each recipe by name in the search box. I’d rather be able to access the yummy summer recipes all from this great list! Is there a way for OAMM to fix the links?

    1. Hi Sherry! We are sorry for the frustration that we know this causes! There is an issue that we are aware of and are in the process of fixing. Thank you!

    2. Sherry – you’ll be pleased to hear that all of the recipe links on this post have been updated and are working now!
