Do you want to save time in the kitchen?

Here are eight tips to make life easier when you’re cooking up a storm.

  1. Baking garlic in the microwave for 10 seconds makes it easy to peel. Alternatively, you can put the cloves in a jar and shake it, but the microwave way is quicker and less work for you.

  3. Putting salt on the chopping board before cutting up herbs will stop them from sticking to the knife. The friction and weight of the salt will keep the herbs from sticking to your knife and getting all over the board.
