Do you have a kitchen or cooking secret that saves time, calories or clean up?
I used to hate having to cook just for myself. After a long day of work and the gym, the last thing I wanted to do was cook a meal for myself. So then I discovered that if I can cook a couple of large meals on Sunday, divide them up into containers and freeze I will have dinners for the whole week!
Save a few dollars and space in your kitchen drawers by not buying a strawberry huller. To remove the hulls and tops from the berries, take a plastic drinking straw and insert it into the bottom of the strawberry. Push the straw through the top of the fruit and the hull will just pop right out.
always when eating out ask for salad dressing on the side. Then just dip your fork in the salad dressing then to your salad.
When cooking over the campfire and your pans get all black on the bottom and hard to clean. Use Liquid Dish Soap rubbed on the bottom of the pan, and it makes it super easy to clean the bottom of the pan.
Microwave garlic cloves for 15 seconds and the skins slip
Eating breakfast starts my day off right. I know that no matter what happens later in the day, at least I started the day off correctly!
Try roasting your vegetables. They taste great without any added fat. Cook at 425 until slightly charred and you will experience a totally different taste than steaming, sauteeing, etc. Great with broccoli, asparagus, green beans, cauliflower.
I like to make enought for there to be left overs the next day for my husband and I. I get small containers to place them in and eat for the next day for lunch. It helps with size portions and not letting food go to waist.
when you have time, cook a recipe in large quantity (soups, stews, etc.) and then freeze in single servings. Great when you need something and can take out one portion.
I like to bake extra boneless skinless chicken breasts & then, using two forks, shred. If not using right away, I freeze. Itís nice to have on hand for a salad or wrap, adding flavor & protein. Shredding seems to put more chicken in every bite.
