Maybe you're already a freezer fanatic, a make-ahead maven: You have bones ready for making broth and our guide to freezer-friendly foods bookmarked and/or memorized. Maybe you even partake in OAMC (once-a-month cooking) -- if you do, tell us about it in the comments! Maybe you're just a really busy person who often comes home starving and doesn't find much in the fridge. Sound familiar? Well, your freezer can help you out -- and we're not talking about that secret stash of frozen Thin Mints.
