It is a fact that humans need to eat food to survive. However, people shouldn’t settle for simply surviving. Sometimes the cooking part of the meal can be better than actually eating the meal. Find some inspiring tips below and get excited about cooking.
Try to keep your spices and herbs in a dark, cool area of your kitchen. They will not taste as fresh if they are exposed to light or warmth. Generally speaking, properly stored herbs and ground spices can keep a good portion of their flavor as long as one calendar year. Spices that are raw, or whole, can keep the original flavor for as long as five years, though it usually falls somewhere between three and five. Proper storage is essential to maintaining fresh, robust flavors.
Don’t add the dressing until right before serving. The prep work should be done before you even start cooking. When you need to create a meal within a certain amount of time it can be stressful. Try and prepare your ingredients ahead of time to avoid unnecessary stress.
For crispier French fries, let raw potatoes stand for 30 minutes in a cold pot of water. The fibers of raw cut potatoes that have been soaked in cold water prior to hitting the deep fryer, are stronger and can handle the heat better without breakage.
If you want to reduce the amount of calories and fat in a mashed potato dish, substitute cauliflower for some of the potatoes. You will not taste the blandness of cauliflower, but notice a new interesting flavor instead. Additionally, mashed cauliflower has the same texture and color as mashed potatoes, so no one will know that you’ve boosted the veggie content of the dish while removing calories.
Learning to cook, and having fun with it at the same time, is as satisfying as eating. These fabulous tips will broaden your cooking knowledge and help you tap into your creativity as you cook. Improving your culinary prowess will cause others to beg for your home-cooked snacks at every get-together.
