Don't you get tired of throwing away foods because you cooked too much for your small family or just for yourself? Most foods in grocery stores are packaged for many servings. So, what happens when only large cabbages are available? What do you do when a recipe calls for one cup of celery instead of the entire bunch? What do you do if you don't want a dozen eggs or a whole watermelon?
Parties. Rallies. Sales sessions. More than a way of storing leftovers in covered plastic bowls, for many it’s a way of life. Earl Tupper took the plastics he developed for WWII into post-war American kitchens. The Tupperware Party is one of the ways women have come together to swap recipes and kitchen wisdom, get out of the house and support each other’s entrepreneurial efforts.
Cling wrap has been used for years in the kitchen to cover bowls, to wrap leftover food and to microwave meals. But there are many hidden factors within glad wrap that is not very commonly spoken about. The cycle of cling wrap is very short but leaves a very big impact on our environment. Here are just some of the reasons why switching to reusable beeswax wrap is not only better for the environment, but also healthier for your family.
But what happens once you get your grill and you have no experience in grilling? Don’t worry—this certainly is an art, and just like any art, it takes time and practice to become perfect. You can always try to grill something for the first time, and you might even succeed, but there are also those people who make the most common outdoor grilling mistakes. It doesn’t matter if you’re satisfied with your grilling skills or not, take a look at this list and simply make sure that you don’t make them. If you follow them correctly, you might as well get a reward for the best griller out there. These are the most common mistakes people make while grilling outdoors:
During inflationary times, there is a growing interest in the usefulness of foods and less emphasis on brand names or store loyalty. For that reason, it is important to examine food products before making that final purchase.
You're in the kitchen stressing over the meal you're preparing for your guests. Behind the white noise of the oven, extractor fan, and simmering pots, you hear the hungry voices of guests (all of whom conveniently "forgot" to make a contribution of baked goods to the dinner party) in the next room, and the occasional ring of the doorbell when a new person arrives.
With freezers that make ice now, people don't really have uses for those ice cube trays anymore. At my house, we completely threw ours out, but now I have at least five because of all the things you can make with them. Seriously, after reading this, you will go to the store and buy ice cube trays.
Ah, the microwave. Microwaves are a staple among college dorm cooks, a must-have tool for families on the go, and for people who just really aren't good at cooking. They have revolutionized the way people prepare food, and frankly, we can't imagine life without them.
If you’re anything like me, coffee shops—and most importantly, coffee—are a daily essential. While I wish every day consisted entirely of sitting in unique and quirky shops, or even better, stopping at an outdoor-seated Parisian café after a nice stroll along the Seine… the quick, easy, and always consistent Starbucks has become a daily go to.
My dad, Devon Thomas, used to be very controlling and wouldn't let me cook at his place even though he owned one of the best toaster ovens to make meals easy. You end up at the hospital one time because you burned all ten of your fingers grabbing a hot plate and suddenly you're not allowed to cook! Luckily, the woman he's been seeing, Chica Reyass, has been as soothing to his soul as half-and-half in black coffee. He's eased up enough that I can cook. That catch is, I have to make use of food hacks every lazy person will love.
Some people like coffee. They enjoy casually going to Starbucks for their lattes and mochas. Others, such as myself, love coffee. I love coffee so much, I typically will drink about five cups a day without blinking an eye. Coffee is life.
