Kitchen Tips and Tricks

Fort Wayne Women: Late getting home in time to cook dinner for a hungry family? Here are a few tips and tricks to make cooking quicker and easier.

Life can get pretty hectic at times, and we could all use some shortcuts to make things a bit more manageable for us. Luckily, there are a ton of life hacks all over the Internet to give us those shortcuts. Here are a few tips and tricks to use in the kitchen to help make cooking easier:

  • Freeze a stick of butter and grate it cold when making biscuits, scones, pies crust, etc. The butter won’t melt and you’ll be less likely to overwork it.
  • Store ice cream (still in the container) in a plastic freezer bag. This trick keeps the cold air from making your ice cream rock hard, instead leaving it soft and creamy.
  • Use unflavored and unscented dental floss to cut through soft foods. You’ll get a perfect cut without getting a crumbly mess.
  • Coat measuring cups with non-stick spray before measuring honey, molasses, peanut butter, or other sticky foods. It’ll slide right out.
  • Freeze fresh herbs in olive oil in an ice cube tray. They’ll last much longer and it’s a breeze to simply pull one out and pop it in the pan when cooking.

These are just a few of the many helpful tips there are for making cooking easier. Go to listotic.com for more tips!

“Everyone at Breast Diagnostic Center, from the receptionist to the radiologist, is professional and caring. I appreciate the fact that the radiologist report is available as soon as the test is completed. When you have had breast cancer, followed by chemotherapy, you don't want to leave without knowing test results.”
