2 Cooking Tips to Help You Be a Better Cook Tonight!

Have you ever found a recipe that looks delicious and you start making it and realize all the prepping you have to do to even begin making the meal? Chopping, dicing, etc.? Below are 2 simple cooking tips to help you be a better cook tonight!

Tip #1

Read through the entire recipe before starting. You’ll then know where the steps are taking you. You’ll also have the insight of any great tips or substitutions the recipe author wanted you to know.

Tip #2

Assemble & prepare all ingredients before starting. The culinary world calls this “mise en place,” meaning, everything in its place. For instance, measure out the ingredients and/or prepare them as directed e.g. washing, drying, chopping, dicing etc. This will make the entire process go more smoothly. You’ll know if you are lacking an ingredient and need to make a substitution. You also will not be rushing to chop something while another something is burning in the skillet! This tip is true even if you are cooking from memory and not following a recipe.
