Cook Once, Eat for Awhile

It has been forever since I have done a post and mostly because I have not wanted to cook lately. However last weekend I ended up cooking a lot of food for the rest of the month. This was very interesting and I will say that it has made life easier when it comes to food but it is an extremely large amount of work on the cooking day. I had heard other people say be prepared to order pizza the night of cooking because you are exhausted and this is correct. I cooked Egg Casserole in the crockpot. Baked French toast in the oven. Shredded Chicken in the crockpot. I marinated chicken, pork chops, and filet mignon, which were all grilled on my indoor grill. I baked potatoes and browned two pounds of ground turkey with onions and the other with taco seasoning. I also browned a pound of pork sausage. This makes me tired just typing all this again.

Several of the recipes came from since I have been obsessed with it lately. One channel, The Bag Holder stood out to me and I felt like several of the recipes would work well. So I ended up making her Egg Casserole, Baked French Toast, and Chicken Tenders. Here are the videos.

Country Casserole by The Bag Holder

This recipe was good but I think I would cut back on the hash browns next time. I tend to like more eggs than potatoes. However this is what I love about her recipes, you can tweak them it needed.  She has such great ideas.

Cinnamon French Toast Bake by The Bag Holder

This one was my absolute favorite. Every time I bring it to work and heat it up, everybody is saying what is that delicious smell. Plus it was so, so easy.

Next was the Chicken Tenders that I also loved. Plus the way that she shows you how to cook them is so cool. I am getting one of these Bag Holders soon. Cooking in the plastic bags makes clean up a breeze which is wonderful. I hate cleaning dishes.  

Crusted Chicken by The Bag Holder

I loved these and again so easy to make plus she gives you such great ideas for changing up the recipe.  I added these on top of my salad and loved them. Will make again and again.

Realize that these are just a couple of the things I did but I will definitely try this method next month again. I also look forward to watching more of her videos and trying her recipes. I even bought her ebook. Go check her out!


  1. Wow very flattered. Go check out the new ones and most can be frozen. Feel free to ask. Pesto chicken, bruschetta chicken, beef stroganoff, taco dip and buffalo chicken dip. All made last week ;).

  2. how do you ration out your daily meals, how many are eating with you. it sounds like with busy schedules this would work great.
