As mums, we are occasionally faced with kitchen dilemmas. Sometimes, we tend to fail to realise that the simplest solutions are often the best.
Today, I’m sharing with you 7 very useful kitchen and cooking tips and tricks I found all over the internet for fixing common kitchen problems.
Ants: Putting 3-4 cloves in the sugar container will keep the ants at bay. [source]
Bacon: No “curly” bacon for breakfast when you dip it into cold water before frying. [source]
Chopping: Use a wooden board to chop. It will not blunt the knife. Don’t use a plastic board, small plastic pieces may go with the vegetables. [source]
Dough in your rolling pin: Stick the dough between two pieces of wax paper or plastic wrap so nothing sticks to your rolling pin. [source]
Egg: To easily remove eggshells dropped into eggs, wet your finger with water before attempting to fish it out. You’ll be shocked at how easily it can be grabbed and eliminated. [source]
Or you can just use part of the shell you just cracked to scoop it up. he shell of the egg will adhere beautifully to it, like a perfect little magnet, saving you time, energy, and maybe even a little piece of mind. [source]
Floss in the Kitchen: Don’t just keep dental floss in your medicine cabinet. Keep some in the kitchen. It’s a great tool. Unflavored dental floss is often better than a knife to cleanly cut all kinds of soft foods, soft cheese, rolled dough, layered cake, and cheesecake. [source]
Garlic: This is a very detailed wikihow on How to Peel a Garlic Clove. There apparently is a “Knife Method,” “Water Method,” and “Microwave Method” in peeling a garlic. Interesting! But this by far is my favourite. It’s a fast and fun way of peeling an entire head of garlic in less than 10 seconds. Cool, eh? Check out this video: http://vimeo.com/29605182.
There are tons of kitchen tips out there! The way I have arranged these tips alphabetically tells me this is going to be a series of post about cooking. Hmmmm…
