Prevent freezer burn and make sure your hard work doesn’t go to waste with challah bags!
Did you know that challah bags (aka 2-gallon bags) fit a 9- x 13-inch pan perfectly? This method will ensure that your hard work doesn’t go to waste. The bags will help prevent freezer burn or the transfer of smells/taste from item to item in your freezer (think meat and cookies).
Label the front of the pan so that once you open the freezer you will find what you need easily.

Did you know that these are less than $2 in the local stores?

I do the same thing with fruit bags. I always have a roll handy, which I pick up at any grocery store. Nobody minds selling me a roll. I use a bag tie to secure it.
They are also great for no mess salad mixing. Prepare all your salad ingredients in the bag, add dressing when you’re ready, seal and shake well. Perfectly dressed salad and no mess!
I use it when I want to marinate veggies before roasting/grilling. Dump all the cut up veggies drizzle olive oil and spices and put in fridge to marinate. No mess…
Since ladies are often rolling up their sleeves and showing me their scars from removing trays out of the oven, I want to share this amazing tip. Always have plastic wrap near your “hot spots”. Immediately and gently cover just the burn with cling wrap. If you can get to the burn in 10 or so seconds
