10 Time Saving Kitchen Tips You Need to Know

Life gets busy and can be stressful, especially if time is not managed carefully. Most often, spending hours in the kitchen is the last thing you want to be doing. Preparing breakfast, lunch, and dinner can take a lot of time. Consider the following helpful tips.

1. Put Ice Cream in a Bag

Ice cream often turns to rock solid if placed in the freezer. To keep it soft and easy to scoop, place the ice cream container into a bag before you put it in the freezer.

2. Preserve Using Olive Oil

3. Enjoy Fresh Salads

Use paper towel over the top of your bowl of lettuce. Doing so will help with absorption of moisture. Thus, it will keep the lettuce delicious and crisp.

4. Roll Those Lemons before Using

Roll your fresh lemons and oranges on the countertop before slicing. Doing this breaks the fibers of the fruit and result in extracting more juice.

The easiest way to keep the cookies moist and soft for days is to store them with an apple wedge in a container. Cookies can be enjoyed longer and maintain their freshness.

6. Peel Potatoes Faster

7. Spreadable Butter

Guests are coming, and you want soft butter for spreading? Grate it into small pieces that will allow it to soften quickly as it warms up on its own.
