I think we all have a certain number of kitchen “tricks” up our sleeves. If you think back to when you were first starting to cook, or if you’re just starting to learn how to cook now, then you know how working in the kitchen can feel like a slow and awkward process. Once you get passed that initial “I’m totally lost in the kitchen and I’m pretty sure I should just eat out for the rest of my life” phase and start picking up on one or two things that work to make things go more smoothly, you feel like you’re just rocking and rolling in there! The great thing about these little kitchen tips and tricks, is that the more you learn, then easier, the better, and the more fun your cooking tasks become. There are so many little hints and tips out there that make such a difference that you can’t help but love cooking more and more as the years go on. Since we all need to eat and spend at least some time in the kitchen every day, I think kitchen tips are some of the most practical, and the most rewarding to pick up and add to your bag of everyday tricks. I thought I’d share a few of my favorites today that help with some of the more frustrating little things about cooking at home and a few that help to make my kitchen a nicer place to be when I’m in there.
What’s your number one favorite kitchen trick that you’ve picked up over the years?
