Of course there is typically a wrong way to do things and your way to do things. Oops, I mean a right way to do things – but you’re always right, right? Anyway, as life goes on we often develop our own methods, systems, and ways of doing things – we put our own flair on whatever we can. And cooking is no different. But like I said, most of the time there is a wrong way to do something… And while I hate to be the bearer of bad news, sometimes your way is actually the wrong way.
4 Things You Are Doing Wrong In The Kitchen
So, if you are finding yourself frustrated in the kitchen a lot, messing up recipe after recipe, or you are just curious how good in the kitchen you really are…
Check out this list of 4 things you might just be doing wrong in the kitchen:
I always have fruit and vegetables that goes bad, so anything that can savor them just a little longer is something I am willing to try! Instead of just tossing lemons on your counter or in the veggie drawer in your fridge, try storing them in the fridge in a bowl of water. They should keep for about three months!
My husband is a meat and potatoes kind of guy – so getting the potatoes right is important. I always thought a roasted potato just had to be done in the oven for what seems like hours on end. But, nope! Try this instead:
Boil the potatoes in salted water and then finish them off by roasting them in the oven.
Wait, save some of that dirty pasta water!!!
Before you drain your noodles, set aside about half of the pasta water to create a perfectly creamy sauce that perfectly coats your noodles.
Let me guess – you are using a measuring cup or a spoon and kicking yourself when all the drippings burn to the pan?
Yep – me too.
But instead, grab a springform ice cream scoop and it will eliminate this problem! And now your single use kitchen utensil has become a multi-use kitchen utensil – even better!
I know, some of these things you probably learned from your dear, sweet grandma. How could she do anything wrong? But, just try them this way for a change and see what happens!
