Life has made us quick learners. But sometimes, we tend to learn the wrong things as accepted practice. You’ll be surprised to know that several of the things that you do on a daily basis, like eating a burger, are not being done right. Here are some of the things that you might have been doing wrong all your life and the right way to do them.
Warming your Choco Pies
Yes, this is news to us as well! Warming this chocolate and marshmallow confectionery in a microwave makes it twice as big and three times as tasty!
Using a mixer like a pro
A paper plate, put on the beaters of the mixer, can serve as a makeshift cover that’ll eliminate unwanted spray.
Making chocolate chips
The easiest way to make chocolate chips is to use a potato peeler. A simple yet effective solution!
Rinsing your salad leaves and storing them sandwiched between paper napkins will practically double their longevity.
Opening a coconut
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Pierce a hole in the coconut’s shell, and pour out the liquid. Place the coconut in the oven for about 15 minutes. Thanks to these simple actions, the coconut will crack by itself. All you’ll have to do is split it open!
True connoisseurs advise against washing mushrooms under running water. It’s best to clean them using a wet towel and a brush as this will help preserve the aroma.
Don’t store bananas in bunches. What you should do is separate them from each other, wrap their “tails” in plastic wrap, and put them in the fridge. Much longer storage is guaranteed!
Preparing dry breakfasts
Cornflakes and other types of cereal quickly cease to be crispy if you leave the box open even for a few minutes. The problem can be easily remedied by placing them in a hot oven for 5-10 minutes. This also works with potato chips.
Cleaning frying pans
А quick solution for cleaning very dirty pots and pans: place them in boiling water and add a small amount of vinegar. This really saves time and effort!
Adding cheese to burgers
To make a real cheeseburger, wait until the meat is ready, place a slice of cheese on top, add a little water, and cover the frying pan with a lid. The cheese will melt after 3-5 seconds. You can find other recipes here.
Collecting jam from the bottom of the jar
Here’s a super tasty way of collecting the remnants of jam, chocolate spread, or peanut butter from the bottom of a jar — simply add cereal and milk! This will make for a great breakfast and ensure that none of your favorite jams go to waste!
Cutting onions without tears
To protect yourself from the infamous effects onions have on the eyes, sprinkle the board with lemon juice before you start cutting.
Saving burned cookies
You can easily rescue your overdone cookies by removing the burned bits with a grater. No one will even suspect that something went wrong!
Opening a bag of chips
Rather than pouring your chips into a bowl, you can make the bag into a bowl. Open the bag in the front with a pair of scissors. Remove the front flap completely and you’ll have a makeshift bowl to eat your chips out of.
