I do.  Where are you looking to start?  What tips do you need?

 I do double batch cooking-doubling a recipe and freezing half for later-but some of the same things apply. I use ziplock freezer bags to freeze most thing, because they lay flat and take up less room. For some dishes, like casseroles, I line the dish with foil,place ingredients, then freeze, double wrap and when ready to bake, it easily goes into the same dish again. Here's a site that might help you

I did it once a number of years ago and at the time wasn't what I was looking for.  There were just two of us and everything was for a family of 6.  I did the 2 week version and was still using those meals 6 weeks later!  I think it's a great idea, but I had been looking to prep things that I could reheat/bake individual servings of.
