You may already be familiar with this kitchen hack for the best banana bread. When you see that your batch of bananas is going “bad” don’t throw them out just yet (unless they are oozy or moldy of course). The overripe bananas are extra sweet and will actually make a fabulous loaf of banana bread that will taste so fresh, you’ll forget that you almost tossed the bananas out.
So, instead of giving up on that blackened bunch, why not bake with them instead?
Ready To Go Breakfast Burritos
It may sound like a pain to make a bunch of burritos ahead of time, but making breakfast burritos on your weekends means much less work on busy weekday mornings.
After assembling your burritos, all you have to do in the end is wrap them up, pop them in the freezer and (when you need a breakfast on the go) defrost them in the fridge the night before and then put them in the microwave in the morning. Voila! Breakfast is served.
Make the Perfect Pancakes
Have you ever struggled to make pancakes without the batter getting everywhere and making a big mess? Well, there’s a hack for that! Next time you’re done with your favorite sauce ( that’s contained in a squeeze bottle of course), be sure to save the container.
This is because, after you clean it out, it can become a great pancake batter dispenser. You’ll end up with much less mess and you might be able to make some cool pancake designs too!
Save the Sauce!
Did you make too much of grandma’s secret pasta sauce? Not sure when you will use it next? Worried it will go bad before you can use it all? Have no fear! Simply grab an unoccupied ice tray and pour your leftover sauce in.
Then, pop your saucy ice tray into the freezer so that it will stay fresh for the next time that you want to use it. You can even do the same thing with minced herbs.
Sweet and Salty
What’s the secret to making the most flavorful savory dishes and the most delicious sweet treats? It might sound strange but, to make savory dishes richer in flavor, add a little sugar! And, to make sweet dishes a little sweeter, add salt!
Sugar will subdue the acidity in savory dishes while salt will often enhance sugar’s power in sweet, baked goods. See, being clever in the kitchen doesn’t need to be that hard!
