1

Cool your food before putting it in the fridge. If you do not, the temperature in the refrigerator will rise. And the only thing that benefits is mold.

2

Do not go to the store with a shopping list. Go to the store, see what ingredients look good and then make your list.

3

For rich, creamy dressings made healthy, substitute half the mayo with Greek style yogurt.

4

Make an appointment with a financial advisor.

5

A braised or slow roasted whole beef roast or pork shoulder can be made into several dishes and sandwiches all week.

6

After working with garlic, rub your hands vigorously on your stainless steel sink for 30 seconds before washing them. It will remove the odor.

7

Soup could have used more tomato? Chicken needed ten more minutes in the oven? Make a note of it and you will never make that mistake again.

8

When seasoning a salad, use coarse sea salt mixed with a little olive oil. It will stay crunchy when combined with the vinaigrette.

9

Keep your parmesan rinds and freeze them for later: Remember that thing about super cheap cuts of meat? Think of rinds as cheese bones.

10

To make a great sandwich, spread the mayonnaise from corner to corner on the bread. Every bite should be flavorful. Now that is a sandwich.

11

When grinding your own beef for burgers, grind in some bacon.

12

Do not use oil in the water when boiling pasta: It will keep the sauce from sticking to the cooked pasta.

13

You cannot toss a salad or mix cookies or make meatballs in a tiny cereal bowl. All you can do is make a bigger mess.

14

When chopping herbs, toss a little salt onto the cutting board; it will keep the herbs from flying around.

15

Treat your herbs like flowers. Next time, trim the stems and put the parsley in a glass of water, fit a plastic bag over it and stash it in the fridge.

16

But if your brown sugar is rock hard, do not throw it out. Revive it with a minute or so in the microwave.

17

Do not toast your toast. Fry it. Warm some butter over medium high heat. Lay in bread and fry until golden on both sides. Sell your toaster.

18

Stop crowding your pans: Food that is crowded into a cast iron skillet or sheet tray gets steamed and soggy instead of crisp.

19

Do not be afraid to set off the smoke alarm: Especially when cooking meat. Smoke equals char, and char is delicious.

20

Always keep lemons in the fridge. They will keep longer that way, you will be able to add fresh lemon juice to everything from dressings to cocktails.
