You might be spending a lot of time in the kitchen just to cook the daily meal, especially while following a particular recipe. This is the issue with recipes, you try to follow the exact amount, the process and period so minutely, just to make sure that the food tastes delicious and that is why it takes so much time! Otherwise, you just put ingredients according to your feelings and experience and it always works.
Today I’ll share some underrated cooking tricks with you to make your Cookinglife easier.
1. Give your homemade tomato sauce a rich flavor – add brown sugar
The color doesn’t really matter. Put some white or brown sugar into homemade tomato sauce, to give it a popping rich taste.
2. Use a spoon to peel eggs
Peeling eggs is a tension when guests are at the dining table. If you have to boil and serve the egg instantly, put two tablespoons of salt into the water. Once the eggs are boiled, use a spoon to crack a small portion and then slowly peel the entire skin smoothly. To follow this trick, adding salt to the water is mandatory.
3. Use lemon slices to grill the fish
Unlike meat, fish gets stuck and sometimes even broken while cooking on the grill. And I have a handy trick for it. Place lemon slices between the fish and grill. It would make your fish perfectly grilled with an additional sour flavor. You can also getgarnishing and serving ideas on Cookinglife.
4. Put the oysters in the microwave to open easily
It needs some tricky serious force to open oysters. And you wouldn’t want to apply hard force on the knife to open it, because you would get hurt if the knife slips. But cracking oysters up could be very easy if you follow this simple step. Put the oysters in the microwave for 15-20 seconds, the heat will loosen them up and help you to open the oysters with less force. Follow Cookinglife to get more such mind-blowing hacks.
5. Make edible dessert cups by using chocolate and a balloon
It’s one of my favorite recipes and serving ideas. To make cute edible dessert cups, you need to melt enough chocolate in a bowl. Then dip a balloon in the melted chocolate, so that the liquid chocolate sticks all over the balloon. After cooling down, pop the balloon and you have the chocolate edible dessert cup. Uniquely serve your dessert. Your guests would definitely compliment your creative mind. Thanks to Cookinglife.
6. Wrap tissue paper on a beer or soda bottle to cool it faster

8. Make your fruit ready to eat by ripening faster
Ethylene is the gas responsible for ripening fruit and veggies. Now I’m going to share a simple scientific trick with you. You can fasten the ripening process by just putting the fruits inside a paper bag. When you store the fruits in closed mouth paper bad, it locks the ethylene inside. By the time, the amount of ethylene increases which ripens the fruits faster. Now you can make your fruits ready to eat at any time! Isn’t it a nice trick?
