Make Ahead Meals

Autumn begins in September,
and with that our thoughts turn to hearty fall foods.  This month we'll talk about food that can be made ahead, either to refrigerate for an upcoming party or to put in the freezer, so when the busy fall season catches up with you, you'll be prepared.

The following recipes fit the bill perfectly.



Also, read my "Baked Kale Chips Recipe" blog featuring one of the new darlings of our health-conscious culture and my "Peach Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich Recipe" posts on on Sally's Food for Thought blog.

Happy September,


Sally Bernstein
