Once upon a time, I had a hard time using up a loaf of bread before it went bad. Nowadays, with a crew of hungry kids, I'm lucking if a loaf of bread lasts one sitting. Either way, freezing baked goods come to the rescue.
If yours is a small household that might not use baked goods quickly, the freezer can help you extend the shelf life of your favorite goodies so that you have time to enjoy them. For the larger family, the freezer can enable you to do some "bulk baking" and get ahead of the game, even if just a little.
