Fast Tip Friday!

Fast Tip Friday!



We’re finally here folks! It’s Friday and that means, more quick cooking tips! The new ones will be in bold:

  1. This is number one for a reason. PREP, PREP, PREP! It’s easier to cook a bunch of chicken or chop a bunch of veggies, or put together 5-6 side salads all at once than trying to do it throughout the week. Save yourself some time and sanity by prepping your meals.
  2. After making eggs sunny side up, deglaze the pan with sherry vinegar and then drizzle it on your eggs for an amazing different flavor.
  3. For rich, creamy, healthier dressings, use half greek yogurt instead of all the mayo!
  4. Prep HUGE crock pot meals and then divvy it up into four gallon sized freezer bags. Place in the freezer and take out a day or two before you want to throw them in the crock pot. Talk about meal prep.
  5. Recipes are just guidelines, not rules. Even if they were rules, break them.
  6. Pick one thing that you do well, and perfect it! Then, make some variations on it.
  7. Keep it simple. Find simple recipes. Steam veggies and season them. Grill.
  8. Try cooking the same meat, like chicken, with different seasonings. Mexican, Greek, Italian, etc. Try things out, but keep it simple.
  9. Speaking of eggs, try cooking different kinds of eggs, like poached!
  10. Try different kinds of salads! Different veggies, different dressings, have fun!
  11. When seasoning meats, sprinkle it on like it’s snowing. That way it will be more even and not chunky in spots. 
  12. When roasting your veggies in the oven, avoid over crowding the food. Keep space in there otherwise the veggies will steam instead of getting that caramelization that we’re looking for. 
  13. To cook potatoes a little faster than an hour in the oven, poke a few holes in them with a fork, wrap in a paper towel and microwave for 4-6 minutes, depending on how big they are. It will take some experimentation, but they taste good and done faster!
  14. Use left over veggies from previous meals for a salad bar! Avoids throwing out food that might sit there and you get more veggies into your meals!
  15. Quick pickle by mixing a little salt and sugar with white vinegar and pour over thinly sliced veggies. Wait 20 minutes and enjoy!
