SUMMARY:
- If you need to chop up a heap of iceberg lettuce, don’t worry about cutting around the tough core in the middle. Just take the lettuce head in both hands, and slam the bottom against a cutting board or other hard surface.
- If you want deliciously crispy bacon, lay the strips on a cold pan, and go for a medium-low heat.
- To prevent a taco catastrophe, try cooking the taco shells in a new way! First, lay a moist paper towel on a microwave-safe plate. Place a single layer of taco shells on the damp towel, and cook the shells in the microwave on high heat.
- Simply fill a pot with boiling water, and boil your potatoes with the skin on until they are thoroughly cooked inside. Prepare an ice bath, and dunk the potatoes in the icy water for 5–10 seconds.
- Try roasting dry pasta to change and enhance its flavor. Put the pasta in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes at 350°F. It will turn a golden brown color. After cooling, boil until al dente.
- If you need to get some spaghetti on the table as soon as possible, forget about boiling it in a big pot of water. Heating so much water is a waste of water, energy, and time.
- After seasoning the veggies with salt, oil, and spices, toss them in a bit of corn starch ( about 1 tbsp per lb of vegetables), and then pop them into the oven to roast.
- Avoid the hassle with this trick: Place the hard-boiled eggs in a shallow, sealable container, and fill the container halfway with cold water.
- The alcohol in the vodka prevents the dough from becoming too tough when baked. Since the alcohol evaporates quickly in the oven, it leaves the baked crust dry and flaky.
- Make sure you thoroughly clean the bottle before pouring in your pancake batter. Now you can squeeze the batter onto your pan in perfectly shaped, perfectly clean pancakes!
- If you are going vegan or have a dietary restriction involving eggs, try using aquafaba to recreate common recipes that require egg whites.
- The next time you fire up the grill, try this bit of advice from celebrity chef Graham Elliot: Stick an ice cube into the middle of the raw patty.
