Whether you enjoy haute cuisine or prefer Lean Cuisine, it's always nice to have a few culinary tricks up your sleeve. So, check out these tips that will make you feel like a magician in the kitchen!
· Honey that doesn't stick.
Before you pour honey (or any sticky ingredient) into a measuring cup, spray the cup with cooking spray and no scraping will be necessary.
· Too much salt.
Did you add more salt than necessary to your favorite dish? Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of olive oil or lemon juice to cut that salty taste.
· No more odors in your ice.
Iceorb makes, chills, serves and stores ice in an airtight container, ensuring that no odors can get into the ice. You'll find it at fusionbrands.com
· Onions that stay fresh.
Drop onions, individually, into a pantyhose leg and tie a knot between each one. Then, hang the hose on a hook in a cool, dry place. When you need an onion, simply cut the pantyhose below the lowest knot. They'll stay fresh for up to six months.
· Salsa or sauce that's too spicy.
No need for your mouth to be on fire! Just stir in about 2 tablespoons of low-fat yogurt to make that salsa or sauce more mild.
· A clean grill.
Turn theheat up as high as possible and let the grill warm up for 5 minutes. Take a baseball-size ball of aluminum foil in a pair of metal tongs and rub it back and forth over the grates to remove what's left from last night's barbecue.
