Here’s how to be a pro in the kitchen

Cooking is something a lot of us fear, for many different reasons. Burnt entrees and failed desserts are just a few potential examples as to why someone may be intimidated in the kitchen, amongst other things.

Good news, though; cooking doesn’t have to be complicated, especially when you have a few tricks on standby. I came across an article from detailing several ways to up your cooking game, and these hacks will definitely come in handy for any cook, whether you be an amateur or a pro.

  • Scoop ice cream into ziplock bags prior to freezing it to keep it a tad softer and free of freezer burn.
  • Use large freezer bags to mix batter to keep messes to a minimum. Further, snip a corner off of the bag to create a DIY piping bag.
  • Keep some dental floss on standby to cut soft foods, like cheese, without squishing them.
  • Try meal prepping.
  • Coat fresh herbs in olive oil and freeze in ice cube trays for a fuss-free flavour additive.
  • Dry herbs at home using your microwave.
  • Place an apple slice in containers with baked goods to keep them soft
  • If you have to peel hardboiled eggs, keep them in a fridge after boiling them for a few days. They will peel easier, especially if you use a spoon.
  • If you’re making poached eggs, soak the eggs in white vinegar for a few minutes before you cook them. This will help ensure the egg doesn’t come apart.
  • Try grilling fish over top of lemon slices to prevent it from sticking with an added flavour boost.
  • Rather than throwing away stale bread, sprinkle some water droplets over top and microwave it or throw it in the oven for a few minutes to soften it up.
  • If you’re using oysters, microwave them for 10-15 seconds to get them to open.

Now scoot on over to the kitchen and have at it.
