I made our baby food with both my girls. I cooked/pureed and then froze in ice cube trays then transferred the cubes to zip lock bags. Both girls started the cereal around 6 months and then their first food (sweet potatoes ect) around 6 1/2 months.

I normally heated it up in the microwave 5 second at a time or in a bag in warm water to thaw. Or I'd take out what I was going to feed them for the day the night before and left them in the fridge to thaw.

Some people take out what they plan to use the night before and put it in tuberware to thaw in the fridge or on the counter (storing it before going to bed). Otherwise you can put it in a dish and zap it in the microwave for a few seconds. SOmetimes the microwave can kill nutrients, though. At my daycare we have a crock pot full of hot water that we place the container in to melt the food.
