Happy Wednesday!

Found a great deal this morning. YorkPhoto.com is offering FREE customized address labels, one set of $30 valued at $5.99, for free! What’s great about this is that you can choose from their designs and templates, or design your own, personalizing text, uploading personal pictures, etc. So perfect! The fact that this is free is awesome, so you can go through your 30 personalized and then decide if you want to order more from there. Simply use the code LABEL when you check out – expires on October 25, 2015.

YorkPhoto.com is also offering 40 FREE 4×6 prints when you register with their website (which you have to do to get the free address labels anyways) – what a fun bonus! I find that so often, I take pictures and they just live on my phone or digital camera forever. I am dying to get back to framing and photo albums.

Julep Maven is a Birchbox-esque beauty box, but what’s different about it is that it delivers exactly what you want. Every month you choose what you love from a new collection. You can customize your monthly boxes with what they have in inventory each month. You can pick a pre-selected box if you still love the element of surprise, or you can pick and choose products or even specific colors.

From makeup to nail polish to skincare, Julep Maven offers all sorts of products that are sure to interest you. That being said, Julep Maven is offering a FREE welcome box for new subscribers so you can see what they’re all about.

These beauty boxes tend to be hit or miss for me, but I feel pretty confident about a box where I can choose my own – so I’m totally down to give this one a shot, especially since I can get a feel for what they’re about for FREE! Check it out, let us know what you think!

Freezer Meals: Week 10

A slightly belated freezer meals rundown this week, but better late than never! This week is absolutely flying by – I forgot yesterday was even Wednesday!

In honor of #WorldVegetarianDay, I decided that this week should highlight vegetarian freezer-friendly meals! Yay! If you are missing the meat, you can always sub in your favorite kind – but these are all really fun crowd pleasers.

Eggplant Parmigiana

Fast Top Ten provides us with a super easy, traditional recipe for one of my all-time favorite vegetarian meals: eggplant parm. To make the freezer friendly version, you simply assemble the dish, but don’t bake it. Wrap tightly with foil and freeze for up to 3 months. When you’re ready to enjoy, thaw completely and bake as directed.

The general recipe here is pretty simple. Simply make the sauce with a food processor and simmer. Slice, coat eggplant with flour, egg, and breadcrumbs, and fry until golden – 2-3 minutes per side. Then assemble the dish in a baking dish – tomato sauce, layering eggplant, parmesean, and mozzarella. Bake until lightly browned and bubbling (whenever you decide to eat this) for about 40-45 minutes.

Baked Mozzarella Sticks

Who doesn’t love mozzarella sticks? MomOnTimeout.com gives us a slightly healthier, freezer friendly version of this bar food staple. These are perfect for snacks, appetizers, or game day finger foods!

Here’s the deal: this recipe is crazy easy, so long as your cheese sticks are frozen completely solid – otherwise these get goopy and sloppy really quickly! Unwrap the amount of cheese sticks of your choice, cut in half, and pop in the freezer. Set out 3 bowls – flour, egg, and breadcrumbs/parmesean combo. You know the drill – dredge in flour, dip in egg, finish with bread crumbs. You can always do a second coat if you feel you need it. Place on a lined baking sheet and place in the freezer for an hour. These can stay in the freezer as long as you want (store appropriately if it’s going to be awhile). Once you’re ready to bake, line a baking sheet with foil, spray with cooking spray, and line up your sticks. Bake for 3-5 minutes, turn, and bake for another 3-5 minutes. Serve with marinara! Yum!

Garlic and Chive Quinoa Cakes

I am fully deep in the quinoa trend. I love the texture and the ease with which it’s made – and of course, the lack of guilt I feel eating it. OnceAMonthMeals puts a new twist on quinoa with their garlic and chive quinoa cakes.

Mix cooked quinoa, eggs, salt, pepper, garlic, shallots, and chives in a bowl and add mozzarella, Parmesan, flour, and panko. Mix well and let stand. Press into round cakes and saute patties for about 6 minutes on each side, placing on paper towels once done to remove excess oil. Allow to cool and divide into freezer bags to freeze! To serve, simply reheat in the microwave for 1-2 minutes.

These are perfect for an appetizer or snack, or a full meal!
