Frozen Assets


Items that help on a big OAMC cooking day

If you’re starting to investigate once-a-month cooking (OAMC), this is a quick list of a few items it can be handy to have around to help the big cooking day go smoothly.

1.) A food processor for chopping large quantities of onions, celery, etc.

2.) Good quality, sharp knives.

3.) Several large, heavy stock pots.

4.) Long handled spoons for stirring and mixing.

5.) Several ladles.

6.) An electric can opener.

7.) A slow cooker for simmering soup while you’re working on other items.

8.) A salad shooter for grating large amounts of cheese.

9.) A waffle iron to make homemade frozen waffles (much tastier than the ones you buy from the freezer case).

10.) Extra large mixing bowl.

 

You don’t necessarily need to purchase all of these. If possible, borrow some of the items. For many years, I borrowed my neighbor’s large stock pot each cooking day. Eventually, she gave it to me when she updated her kitchen.

Special Mother’s Day Offer – Free eBooks!

Filed under: freezer cooking

The ebook versions of three of my recently released (or re-released) books are FREE this week!  Tell your friends! 🙂   And if you don’t have a Kindle, no worries … you can download a free Kindle reading app for your computer, tablet, or smart phone!


Hints and hacks for home and family.

The Original Simple Mom’s Idea Book contains tips and suggestions for everything from cooking, saving money, celebrating the holidays, and just generally raising a family.

If you’ve been looking for some simple ideas for life and homemaking … from someone who’s been around the block more than once or twice … look no further.

Have no fear, the Original Simple Mom is here!


Creative ideas for today’s busy kitchens.

Do you remember that old children’s story, Stone Soup? Everyone came along and threw a little of this and a little of that into the pot with the stone, and before their eyes, the first unofficial Mix and Match soup was born! And remember how much they all loved it? Contributing something to the finished product goes a long way toward increasing a child’s enjoyment of their meal.

Just think of Mix-n-Match cooking as an art form all its own. This book will give you the general guidelines and starting points—you take it from there and see what tasty concoctions your kitchen has hiding in the dark recesses of its shelves and drawers. To get started using this book, you won’t need to run out to the store to stock up on hard to find ingredients. Just pick from what you already have on hand.  Save time, save money, and save your sanity!


An introduction to Charlotte Mason’s timeless educational ideas.

Are you disappointed with dumbed-down reading material (“twaddle”) written for children? Do you wish for your children to feast their hearts and minds on noble ideas, fine art, and great literature? Are you hoping your children gain an appreciation of nature and a deep understanding of natural sciences? Most importantly, do you want your children to develop a lifetime love of learning? If you answered “yes,” you may discover a Charlotte Mason-inspired twaddle-free education is just what you’ve been looking for. In the mid-1990’s, I set up one of the first Charlotte Mason homeschooling websites and edited The Charlotte Mason Monthly ezine. I currently edit The Charlotte Mason eMagazine.


Hurry!  These special Mother’s Day offers are only good through Thursday, May 14th.  After that the ebooks return to their regular price of $2.99.  Feel free to pass this information onto your friends.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Ever since returning to school full-time, I don’t seem to have much time for keeping up on my assorted blogs.  But I’m still online … just mainly in social media settings where the conversation isn’t nearly as time-consuming for now.

So if you’d like to stay in touch, you can find me, like me, or follow me on Pinterest, Twitter, and Facebook, too!

Top Five Posts on Frozen Assets for 2013

These are the Top Five posts on this blog for the past year:

What should I post about in 2014?  Any suggestions?  Comments?  Questions?



I have a new Facebook page!

Here are four things to know about my brand new Facebook fan page:

It’s Directly from Me!

Some authors hire other folks to do their social networking for them. Well, not me!  Even if I could afford to hire someone, I’d still want to keep tabs on what’s happening there, myself.  You’ll find assorted information about freezer cooking, saving money, simple living, parenting, and anything else that happens to cross my mind as I’m going about my day.

It’s a Glimpse into My Real Life!

Ever wonder what I do during the day?  Well, other than directly asking my kids, my cats, or my neighbors, you can follow me on Facebook and get a glimpse into the “real” me as I try to stay ahead of the dirty laundry, mossy lawn, messy storage shed, gunky microwave, and all!

It’s a Two-Way Conversation!

Social media is all about connections and conversations, and I really do watch what you say on my Fan Page.  And I usually respond — if I’m not swamped with homework, that is (I’ve gone back to college full-time).  Feel free to post a question or a comment — and if I don’t respond, someone else probably will. We’re a friendly bunch.  🙂

It’s Easy to Sign Up!

If you don’t have a Facebook account already, it just takes a minute or two to set it up. Just go to http://www.facebook.com, fill out the little form, click the “sign up” button, and you’re set. Next, visit my Facebook Fan Page at http://www.facebook.com/debitaylorhough  and then click on the “Like” button. Now when you log in to your Facebook account, you’ll see my most recent posts on your News Feed.

Hope to see you there.  Or as we said back in the day, “Be there or be square!”
