Problem: Your favorite baking pan is stuck in the freezer with a lasagna.

Solution: Put that pan back in heavy rotation. Next time you make lasagna, or any casserole, line the baking dish with foil, leaving a 4-inch overhang, before filling and baking. Once the lasagna is cool, freeze it, then use the foil flaps to remove it from the pan; tightly wrap with freezer paper and pop it back in the freezer. Later, unwrap it, put it back in the pan and heat it up.
