5 Tips For Making Cooking Less Stressful
#1. Store your lettuce and celery in paper bags and not plastic ones. Do not clean the vegetables or take off the leaves on the stalk or on the outside, until you are ready to cook them.
This will ensure they will keep the freshness while being stored inside the refrigerator until you can cook with them.
#2. If you are preparing a recipe that calls for bread crumbs & you happen to be out of bread, you can try these simple substitutions in your recipe:
- cracker crumbs, matzo
- crushed cornflakes
- grounds oats
- or even potato chips.
Simply substitute an equal amount of the replacement food for the bread crumbs.
3.We all love to use our slow cookers because it is so convenient for our hectic schedules. While it is very convenient to cook meats in a slow cooker, it is important that you are very careful or you can be at risk.
Any meat that you plan on adding to a cooker needs to be browned first so that it reaches food-safety standards for temperature.
4.Make it a habit to check to see if you have all your ingredients before starting a recipe. There is nothing worse than getting halfway through a recipe, only to realize that you are missing a vital ingredient.
Save time by getting everything that you need out before preparing the recipe such as bowls, measuring cup, etc
5. Measure everything out, and prepare any ingredients in advance.
This way, you won’t suddenly find yourself having to chop an onion or grate cheese when you are right in the middle of your recipe.
