50 Cooking Tips That Will Change Your Life!


1. You can learn a lot by reading the comments other people leave about online recipes. I’ve made super-salty soup one too many times! Reading feedback from others who say “Be sure to reduce the salt” can really save a recipe—and reduce its sodium content! —Julie Fagan, of Peanut Butter Fingers (pbfingers.com)

2. Always crack an egg on a flat surface, never the edge of a bowl. Otherwise you’ll risk shell shards and possible contamination of your food. —Aida Mollenkamp, of Pairs Well with Food (aidamollenkamp.com)

3. Don’t throw out those last drips of jam in the jar; shake up a fruity vinaigrette instead. Add equal parts oil and vinegar to the jar, give it a good shake, and season with salt and pepper to taste. —Marisa McClellan, of Food in Jars (foodinjars.com)

4. Cooking doesn’t have to be entirely from scratch every single meal. Making easy homemade sauce for store-bought pasta still counts! —Kate Selner, of Kate in the Kitchen (kateinthekitchen.com)

5. Soak bitter greens, like arugula or kale, in a bowl of ice water in the fridge for about an hour to cut their bitterness. Run the leaves through your salad spinner several times with a paper towel to get them nice and dry and crisp. —Dina Avila, of Leek Soup (leeksoupblog.com)
