  1. This was tonight’s dinner, with modifications – used “Asian mix” (chopped red/white cabbage, broccoli, carrots, kale, pea pods) instead of broccoli slaw and used whole wheat fettucini. TOTALLY DELISH! Thanks for so many easy, healthy, reasonably-proced recipes!

  2. Just found your site (I’m starting to do freezer cooking) and Love it! But I was wondering how long are recipes good to keep in the freezer? I’ve specifically looked at this recipe and chimichangas, but would like to know in general. Thank You
