10 Cooking Tips for the Kitchen-Clueless Girl

Anastasis Faith

I love cooking and baking. I have a cute, old-lookin’ notebook that I always write recipes, kitchen tips, and helpful things I find in books or the internet in.
  I look forward to when I have a daughter of my own who’s eager to help in the kitchen and I can give her the book filled with recipes to her to try out. Of course, that’s all in the Lord’s will. ;)
  Here, I present to you, my good people, 10 awesome kitchen tips that have served. me. well. I have them all written in my notebook and use them when… they come to mind ( I’m still trying to commit them to memory ;) )
  I hope you enjoy!

10 Cooking Tips for the Kitchen-Clueless Girl

Tip 1:
 Store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil. It will stay fresh much longer and not mold.

Tip 2:
Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating. Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking.

Tip 3:
Add garlic immediately to a recipe if you want a light taste of garlic and at the end of the recipe if you want a stronger taste of garlic.

Tip 4:
When you buy a container of cake frosting from the store, whip it with your mixer for a few minutes. You can double it in size. You get to frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount. You also eat less sugar and calories per serving.

Tip 5:
To warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were refrigerated, place them in a microwave with a cup of water. The increased moisture will keep the food moist and help it reheat faster.

Tip 6:
If an egg is spoiled it will float in a bowl of water rather than sink.

Tip 7:
Roll lemons or limes between the counter and the palm of your hand to make them easier to juice.

Tip 8:
If measuring out both oil/butter and honey put the oil or butter in your measuring cup first then the honey will slide right out.

Tip 9:
Toss berries in flour before baking in muffins or bread and they will be more evenly distributed.

Tip 10:
If you over-salt something (stew, soup, etc.) throw a potato in the pot. It’ll suck up all the salt and won’t leave it over-salted.

But He answered, “It is written,
“‘Man shall not live by bread alone,
   but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
Matthew 4:4

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31

Give us this day our daily bread.
Matthew 6:11

  1. Thanks do much Aly! I will keep these in mind!

    1. I'm glad you enjoyed it! I pray they will serve you well.

  2. Wow! Those are some awesome tips! One tip that my family has discovered has to do with storing shredded cheese. After you shred your cheese, put some flour in the bag and toss it around. This keeps the cheese from sticking together too much.

    1. Wow, what a great tip!! Another one for the book- wonderful! Thanks, Abigail, I am so glad you enjoyed the tips!
