Mom’s just seem to be amazing cooks, right? When I first left home at 21, I totally took for granted the home cooked meals my Mom used to make every day. Suddenly I found myself getting home to a bare kitchen and reaching for a take-out menu. Not ideal or healthy, so I started putting the lessons I’d learned from Mom to good use and got into the kitchen.
Here are some of the best tips from Moms:
- Mom always stressed the importance of cleaning up as you go. That means you’ll always have at least some counter space free for prepping and, even better, the post-dinner cleanup is no big deal because most of it is already done.
- Any imperfection can be fixed with icing.
- Always lick the bowl – no matter how old you are. Your inner child will be thrilled.
- Rub your fingers on metal (like a silver serving spoon) after cooking with garlic or onion to remove the smell.
- Always read the recipe more than once before you begin, check that you have all the ingredients, and take it slow. But most importantly: Love is the main ingredient in any cooking!
