1

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.

2

Take the time to actually read recipes through before you begin.

3

Buy fruit at its peak at a farmers market and freeze it in an airtight container so you can enjoy it year round.

4

Smash garlic cloves inside a resealable plastic bag with the back of a knife. That way, your cutting board and knife would not smell.

5

Season all of your food from start to finish. Seasoning in stages brings the most out of your ingredients and gives you the most flavor.

6

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

7

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.

8

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.

9

Salt your salads: It adds texture. It makes the dressing pop. It is proof that there is nothing you should not be salting.

10

Acidity, salt and horseradish bring out full flavors in food.

11

Put the lid on the pot to make your water boil faster: Seems obvious, but if you do not know, now you know.

12

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

13

Make an appointment with a financial advisor.

14

Put a damp paper or kitchen towel under your cutting board. That way, your board would not slip around as you chop

15

Invest in a bottle of high quality olive oil. Just a small drizzle can really bring out the flavor of pizza, mozzarella, pasta, fish and meat.

16

Switch to metal measuring cups and spoons. Plastic warps over time, making them less precise.

17

Store spices in a cool, dark place, not above your stove. Humidity, light and heat will cause herbs and spices to lose their flavor.

18

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

19

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

20

Always use sharp knives. Not only is it safer but it will make your work much more efficient.
