Many people don’t like to cook. Yes, it’s fun but it can be stressful at times. However, there’s just something fulfilling about preparing and cooking dishes your loved ones can eat and get their fill with. Besides, you don’t have to be a master chef to cook. There are countless easy-to-prepare dish recipes today that you can look up and do at home.
Here are some cooking hacks and tips that will make cooking a fun experience and a whole lot easier!
1. Faster Way to Peel Garlic
Does the dish you’re going to cook require a lot of fresh garlic? Pop a bulb into the microwave and set it on high for 20 seconds. Garlic peel comes off easily this way. This tip works for squash, too, but put it in for 3 minutes.
2. Lemon Essential Oil or Juice for Washing Fruits and Veggies
Put in a few drops of lemon essential oil or juice in the water you’re going to use to wash your fruits and vegetables. The juice or oil helps strip off the waxy residue left over by pesticides.
3. Microwave that Herb!
Make your own herb mixes by buying fresh herbs from the market, microwaving them at home (place them on a paper towel and heating them using your microwave’s high setting for 1 minute) until they’re dry, then finally crushing and mixing them according to your taste.
4. Save Your Apple and Potato Slices from Browning
Yes, lemon juice can keep your apple and potato slices from browning. But did you know mixing a part of honey to two parts of water does the same?
5. A Complete Kitchen? Yes, Please!
