The freezer is a year-round workhorse — we love it in the winter for stashing away containers of soup, and we love it in the summer for making it a whole lot easier to get a meal on the table when we seem to be too busy spending time on the beach or on the patio to fuss.

Spend a little time prepping these seven recipes and your summer will be set.

1. Freezer-to-Grill Steak and Vegetable Kabobs

Summer means grilling — lots and lots of grilling — so having a quick meal on hand that you can toss on the grill straight from the freezer is a no-brainer.

6. Freezer-to-Oven Chicken Alfredo Casserole

While casseroles aren't always thought to be summer food, given that they require the oven to be cranked up for a bit, this light and creamy recipe is perfect when you want a little comfort food on a stormy summer day.

7. Freezer Taco Kit
