Get ready for some delicious food - this post has everything you need! Not sure where to start? Check out our list of must-have kitchen tools, or our favorite recipes from around the web that are perfect for when you're too tired after work but still want something tasty and satisfying.
1. Make a list of all the ingredients you need before you start cooking.
This also makes shopping easier. Chefs are always making lists.
2. Be organized - put your utensils and spices in easy to find places so that when it's time to cook, everything is ready.
Chefs call this their meis-en-place. Everything in its place.
3. Use fresh herbs liberally - they make any dish taste better
Grow them in the kitchen window and they are easier to get to.
4. Cut vegetables into uniform sizes for even cooking times.
Practice makes perfect in this area and a good sharp knife.
5. Keep an eye on what you're cooking- if something seems like it's going too fast or too slow, adjust the heat accordingly!
Nothing is worse than a gooey cake or dry pork chops.
6. Try new flavors- sometimes people are afraid to try new things because they think it will be gross but trust me, there are hundreds of recipes out there that use different spices and flavor combinations that can really change up your routine!
I love finding different ways to make traditional dishes.
