Kitchen Hacks

The kitchen can be a hectic place, with so many things going on at once. Fortunately, there are plenty of kitchen hacks that can help make your life a little bit easier and more organized. Here are a few of our favorite kitchen hacks:

  • Freeze leftover wine in ice cube trays: Instead of tossing out leftover wine, pour it into ice cube trays and freeze it for later use in sauces, stews, or even sangria.
  • Use a pizza cutter to chop herbs: Save time and effort by using a pizza cutter to chop herbs into small pieces.
  • Use a muffin tin for portion control: Portion out snacks like nuts or fruits in a muffin tin for easy snacking and portion control.
  • Use a colander to spread butter: Spread butter evenly over bread or toast by using a colander. Simply place the butter inside the colander and use a spoon to push it through the holes.
  • Use a binder clip to organize cords: Keep cords like your blender or toaster neatly coiled by using a binder clip. Simply clip it onto the cord and then clip the excess cord onto the rest of the cord.
  • Keep brown sugar soft with a slice of bread: Keep your brown sugar from turning into a rock by storing it with a slice of bread. The moisture from the bread will keep the sugar soft and pliable.
  • Use a rubber band to prevent pots from boiling over: Prevent pots from boiling over by placing a rubber band around the middle of the pot. The rubber band will pop up and alert you when the pot is boiling over.

These simple hacks can save time, effort, and money in the kitchen. Try some out for yourself and see just how much easier and enjoyable meal prep and cooking can be.
