Three great recipes for families with new babies

Posted by  | Friday, September 10, 2010  at 10:11 AM  
Below are links to three of my favorite meals to take to families who need meals (often it is new babies, but sometimes it is surgery/illness/death in the family as well). Each of these can be frozen in advance, which is also a great benefit to both the family preparing (you can double a recipe and freeze half) and the family receiving (they can freeze the meal and save it for later). Please forgive my laziness in not typing out each of these recipes--I thought the links would easier.
Creamy Slow Cooker Chicken *The Finn family just calls this Chicken Yum Yum, and everyone loves it. It is not a one dish meal, but you can prepare the chicken ahead and easily make rice and veggies for a side.
Pronto-Stuffed Shells *This recipe makes two 8x8 pans of stuffed shells, so it is perfect of freezing half for a small family.
Baked Ziti *My baked ziti recipe can feed a large family, or be divided in half for two small families. And like most Italian meals, it tastes even better as leftovers!

What are some of your 'go-to' meals for friends in need? Please share in the comments.
