I use Ziploc bags for clean up actually. Any left over onion, bell peppers, etc.
Also, as a working mom, i prepare all my meals and freeze them with all the ingredients included. For example, is I make my famous "pollo guisado" I plae the chicken, bell pepper, tomato sauce, seasoning, garlic, onions, in the ziploc and freeze it. In a rush, all I have to do is simply move the bag from the freezer to the fridge in the morning, and it is ready to cook in the evening when I come home. it also works great for hubby, because, he just opens up the ziploc and starts the cooking, all the preparation is done. He loves it and often starts dinner if he gets home before me, because its so easy.

I make ziplock omelettes...
Preparation - Ziploc Omelets
Set out the eggs and a variety of ingredients such as: cheeses, ham, onion, green pepper, tomato, salsa, hash browns etc....
Have each person write their name on the outside of a quart size ziploc freezer bag. Crack 2 eggs (large or jumbo) into each bag (no more than 2). Mash and shake well to combine.
Fold the top edge down so the bag will remain open. Have each person add their favorite ingredients into their own bag. Remove all air from the bag and zip it up! Shake well to combine all ingredients.
Place the bags into rolling, boiling water for EXACTLY 13 minutes. You can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot.
Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily. Prepare for everyone to be amazed!
Serve with fresh fruit and coffee cake.
These can be prepared in the bags the night before and in the morning it's 13 minutes to breakfast!

I also use the baggies for shaking the breading on to my desired food. I store my leftover veggies in them if i dont need to cut the whole veggie for a meal. i write the date to ensure freshness too. The ziploc containers come in handy when i 'm chopping and need to store them while i cut something else. Somtimes if i want a quick baked potato I pop it in the bag after washing and piercing, close it and microwave for 4-5 mins. make sur you let it stand for a minute or two.
