Freeze and Thaw: 15 Make-Ahead Meals and Tips

Best of 2010

All the hard work has already been done, and all we have to do is pop it in the oven for a few minutes to warm up! Here are some great do-ahead tips from this past year, along with our favorite make-and-freeze recipes like Indian Dahl and Crustless Mini Quiches.
