Tips of the Month MOBILE

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Build time-saving habits

There are plenty of little habits you can build while cooking that will make you more efficient. For example, rinse prep dishes as you go to make washing them easier or move them into the dishwasher as you’re working. You can also create a scrap bag or bowl where you discard skins, odd bits, or anything else you might throw away while cooking – this way you don’t have to lose your flow walking over to the trash can. A huge time-saver: prep bowls. Measure out your ingredients beforehand and set them out in prep bowls. That way, once it’s time to use them, you can just grab the bowl and pour.
