We all want to be able to make delicious food, but cooking just doesn't come as easily for everyone. Thankfully, we've compiled some super simple tricks you can use in the kitchen to make amazing meals in a snap!
Orange You Glad
Peeling an orange can be a bit messy sometimes, but it doesn't have to be with the help of a knife and three well-placed cuts. Cut off the top and bottom of the orange so you can see the segments, and then slide your knife in a central line between segments. Then just open the peel and all your orange slices are there!
Bacon Cinnamon Rolls
Make breakfast your favorite meal of the day by combining both of these favorites into a drool-worthy dish. Simply role a slice of bacon in each cinnamon role and let them bake as usual.
Turn your breakfast up a notch by cooking your morning eggs in bell pepper slices or onion rings. Not only will they taste better, but they'll look so much nicer and more professional as well!
Fresh Apples Always
Apples are a perfect healthy snack to grab on the go, but they go bad relatively quickly. Once the fleshy inside of an apple is exposed, it will begin to brown. To stop this process, soak slices in a bowl of lemon juice or vinegar.
Drinkable Cookies And Cream
Ready for a delicious dessert you can make in seconds and drink out of a glass? Freeze bits of Oreo with milk in an ice cube holder, then use them as ice cubes in a glass of milk.
Steady The Taco
Taco night is a favorite dinner for so many people, but ingredients can fall out since the tacos lie on their sides on your plate. However, you can easily fix this by using the prongs of a fork to keep the shell upright.
Perfect Ice Cream Sandwich
Stop worrying about your scoop of ice cream falling out or leaking over the side, or about your cookie breaking when you press it down. This ice cream sandwich will be ready in seconds without stress. Use a hot, wet knife to cut a segment out of a carton, then remove the wrapper once it's in place between the cookies.
Chopstick Training Wheels
Although most Americans eat with forks, knives, and spoons, picking up a pair of chopsticks to eat Chinese, Korean, Japanese, or Vietnamese food is a part of the experience. If you aren't very adept at using chopsticks, try adding the spring part of a clothespin to them.
That’s The Last Straw(berry)
Cutting of the stems of strawberries is frustrating because you're also getting rid of a lot of the fruit itself. To ensure that all you're losing is the stem, push a straw through the berry.
Perfect for ice cream, yogurt, strawberries, or…hell, anything! Use an edible bowl made from chocolate to take any snack to the next level. Pour melted chocolate onto a balloon and freeze it, then pop the balloon to reveal your new bowl!
Upgrade Your Burger
Take your burgers to the next level with just a cup and an egg. Before you start cooking your patty, use the cup to cut a hole out of the center. Then, as you're cooking the burger, place an egg in the hole to cook along with it!
Easy Cheesy Bread
Who doesn't love cheesy bread!? Well, now you can get a whole heaping helping of the stuff in just a few minutes! Cut a loaf of bread in a checkerboard pattern and put slices of cheese in the cuts. Add green onions and poppy seeds, wrap in foil, and then cook.
On The Wedge
To get a whole spud worth of potato wedges in just one cut, use an apple corer.
Cutting corn off the cob can be a messy task. Instead of letting the kernels get all over your counter, hold the cob vertically
Having a drink outside is a fantastic way to enjoy a nice day, except for when the bugs come out and want a sip as well. Glasses don't come with lids, but you can make your own by sticking a straw through a cupcake liner.
Hash Brown Waffles
Want to make golden hash browns in a hurry? All you need is your waffle iron! Press the potatoes in the waffle iron and you'll have perfect hash browns in no time.
Immediate Fancy Lemons
From glasses of water to grilled fish, lemon slices serve as both a flavor enhancer and a form of decoration. To get them to look extra fancy with barely any work, use a peeler to create vertical stripes on the lemon before you cut it. Now the slices will look like flowers!
Proper Hot Dog
Most people actually aren't cooking their hot dogs correctly. To be sure every part is grilled evenly, lightly slice it in a spiral and then uncurl it.
BLTs are always a satisfying lunch, but it can be annoying to get a big chunk of bacon in one bite and none in the next. To get a perfect spread, grill your bacon in a latticed square.
