One of the many kitchen gadgets you won’t regret investing in? A spiralizer. The handy tool isn’t just for creative and colorful salads; they can also be your shortcut to the perfect curly fries.
Grab a spiralizer, spiralize the cleaned, uncooked potatoes, toss in olive oil and seasonings, and bake at 425 Fahrenheit (218 Celsius) for 20 minutes. Make sure to stir every few minutes so the fries bake evenly.
Keep Boozy Beverages Cool and Classy
If you are running out of time to properly chill your white wine (or cocktail of choice) try this clever, classy hack. Take a bunch of ripe, juicy grapes (red or green, your preference), take them off the stems, place them in a container, and put them in the freezer for at least an hour.
Then remove, separate the individual grapes and plop them into your wine glass. Not only do they cool your wine, but they also look great too.
A Better Fruit and Veggie Cleaner
If you want to thoroughly clean your fruits and veggies without using just water and a harsh chemical cleaner, there’s a better way. Take some baking soda and water and make a mixture. Then, use it to scrub your fruits and vegetables and rinse thoroughly.
This way you don’t under-wash your fruits and veggies and you don’t have to worry about harsh or toxic chemicals. It’s a win-win.
Simple Steak Fries
Now if you want to mix up your fry styles, there’s yet another hack for that! If you want thick-cut, crispy steak fries start by grabbing your apple slicer, that’s right, your apple slicer. Cut one end of the potato and place it down on a hard surface for more safety and stability.
Next, simply press down on the slicer like you would with an apple. Now you have ready-to-go- thick steak fries.
No More Stale Cookies
There’s nothing quite as comforting and tasty as home-baked cookies. But even the best cookies can go stale fast if they are not stored properly or eaten soon enough. The best way to keep your freshly baked cookies soft? Put a slice of bread in an air-tight container with your cookies.
The cookies will absorb the moisture from the bread and will keep them soft and fresher for longer.
