There are few things that save time and energy more than making your food ahead. But so often it can end up meaning bland dishes, overheated messes, and recipes that just didn't hold up well. In my new book Bring It!: Tried and True Recipes for Potlucks and Casual Entertaining, I had to make every recipe foolproof for making ahead and taking it on the go.

So read ahead for the essentials I learned along the way to ensure you can get in the habit of saving time and making food ahead.
