Make cooking easier.
Some food would need very little preparation and no cooking at all, such is the case of raw foods. However, most of the food we eat is cooked, so it is handy to know how to prepare it.
Discard any food left out at room temperature for more than 2 hours.
Immediately cool down and then refrigerate or freeze remaining leftovers in shallow containers.
Try spraying your measuring spoon or cup jug with flavorless oil before adding thick, sticky ingredients like honey. This way you can be sure that the entire contents go into your recipe and that is the right measure. It also makes the cleaning easier and reduces waste.
