tips & tricks tuesday

so if you’re trying out some of these recipes (and i know some of you are) – here are some things that help me in the kitchen.

i’ll continue to post some helpful things on tuesdays, and if you have any – send them over! van@chieats.com

  • broken chips? leftover bread? crush and use them for breading your next chicken or fish dish – mix with some panko and you’re good to go!
  • use ice cube trays to save ingredients you may have too much of – crushed garlic, cilantro, with a bit of olive oil – and freeze, they’ll be perfect to just pop in the pan for your next meal.
  • a tip from giada: after you drain pasta, while it’s still hot, grate some fresh parmesan on top before tossing it with your sauce. this way, the sauce has something to stick to.
