Try These Dishwasher Hacks For A Cleaner, More Orderly Kitchen

This video, from Nonnahs Driskill and Get Organised Already!, is packed with tips to save kitchen counter space and make sure dirty dishes get into the dishwasher (and the clean ones back out.) Anyone with a small kitchen — or who lives with another person — can find something here to try.


Bake Better Chicken Breasts With The Dry-Poaching Technique

Boneless, skinless chicken breasts don’t have a lot of fat in them, so they’re a challenge to cook (unless you like dry or tasteless chicken). With a piece of parchment paper, however, this problem is solved.


What To Look For When Buying A Serrated Bread Knife

A decent serrated bread knife should be able to carve through crusty breads, split cake layers, slice squishy tomatoes, and easily cut stacked sandwiches with ease. If you’re tired of your knife making a mess out of your food, here’s what you should look for in a new one.


Make Perfectly Crisp Outside And Soft Inside Cookies In Minutes In A Waffle Iron

Video: We’ve talked about the wonder of waffle iron cooking before, and even about making cookies in them, but this video walks you through actually making those waffle iron cookies from start to finish.


Store Leftover Tomato Halves Cut-Side Down In The Fridge

Whole tomatoes can be stored in the fridge or at room temperature, depending on how ripe they are. But if you’ve already sliced into one, the fridge is always the best place for them to be. Here’s how to do it right and maximise their freshness.


Skewer And Grill Chicken Wings For Most Delicious, Crispy Skin

To Keep Spices Fresh Longer, Never Sprinkle Them Directly Over A Hot Pot

Have you ever noticed that spice grinders usually come with a bossy warning to “Avoid grinding over steaming pots?” I had always assumed it had something to do with not burning the spices (or yourself), but it’s actually for the good of the spices, not your hands.


Make In-and-Out's Animal Style Burgers At Home

We’re still patiently waiting for In-and-Out to permanently make its way Down Under instead of teasing us with intermittent pop-up stores. You may not be familiar with the cult love around the chain and their “animal” sauce, but if you’ve ever had one, it’s easy to bring that flavour home to enjoy.


Boost Boring Office Microwave Porridge With Banana On The Bottom

Some offices that have snacks around have packets of microwave oats. They’re easy snacks and breakfasts, and you just need a bowl and some water, but they’re a little boring. The fix is easy: Grab a banana. Bring one from home, or maybe there’s one in that same pantry.


Use Herb Stems To Infuse Oil, Vinegar And Stock Instead Of Tossing Them

Herb stems are packed with flavour, so rather than tossing them in the trash or compost, use them to make oils, vinegars and stocks tastier.
