The beloved Freezer feature is now available on our iOS and Android apps!

 This feature will allow you to access recipes you already have frozen if you have been using our website. Just like your recipe book, meal plan, and shopping list, all of your freezer meals will sync with your app. In addition to viewing your frozen meals, you can freeze new recipes, add frozen meals to your planner, and edit the number of servings sizes for recipes you have frozen. The Freezer elevates your meal planning by allowing you to freeze leftovers or make double portions, which means less cooking in the future. We love anything that brings some simplicity to our meal planning process and making meals ahead of time is a great trick for this!

If you are looking for some Freezer meals to get started, we hosted two Cooking Challenges in 2017 (Easy Meals for the New Year and Make Ahead Meal Plan Challenge) which included several freezer recipes. Even if you did not participate in those challenges, we have made these recipes accessible to you in the app. Here’s how to find them:

  1. Tap on the My Recipes menu at the top of your Recipe Book.
  2. Tap on Friends.
  3. Tap on Make Ahead Meal Plans: Monthly Challenge or Easy Meals for the New Year: Monthly Challenge.
  4. You can view and plan these recipes to start filing your freezer.

Note: In your desktop account, these recipes are located in the Challenges tab.
