How to Freeze Foods Longer

Have you ever froze something to later find out when you take it out of the freezer it has freezer burn or did not stay as fresh as when you froze it????
The problem is not your freezer it is how you froze it to begin with and with proper freezing techniques you can have that corn you grew 2 summers ago taste as if you just picked it. Maybe you made enough gravy over thanksgiving you can actually freeze it for next year at thanksgiving and it will taste like you just made it that day.

Chicken Vesuvius

This recipe is excellent for large groups but also can be scaled down to easily make this a dinner for two.
Chicken Vesuvius has been in my family for years, handed down from my Great Grandmother, Grandmother, Mother and then into my hands and along the way there has not been one change made to it simply because, why mess around with ABSOLUTE PERFECTION. ☺

I can still smell all these flavors mixing together in the oven on Christmas Eve. Even as I am writing, I can smell the unbelievable aroma this dish leaves on all your senses, mind and heart. It is a flavor you will never forget.
The tastes of Italy are throughout this recipe and I am certain it will become a favorite in your home as well.

Cooking translucent onions is very simple and you will achieve perfection in no time. I use them in my Chicken Vesuvius plus many other recipes we will cover in future posts.
