Got an empty freezer on your hands? That’s about to change. Ali Martin of Gimme Some Oven is all about transforming the oh-so-often underutilized space from a graveyard for forgotten frozen peas into a cornerstone of your meal-prep practice.
One super-secret weapon in the freezer, says Martin, is your ice cube tray. Instead of sticking to H2O, you can use it to store small portions of leftover sauces, pesto, cookie dough, and coffee or tea to keep your iced drinks cold… and flavorful. Be sure to label everything that goes into the freezer, she warns, since food tends to become pretty unrecognizable in its frozen form.
