Fixing Cooking Mistakes-
The joy of cooking often includes fixing cooking mistakes. I know that may seem odd. But a remedy for a mistake can make you smile when you realize that the recipe is not ruined.I am often like a “mad scientist” when I am creating recipes and I make mistakes in the kitchen on occassion. Even when making tried and true recipes. These are just a few of the rescues I have used. I hope these tips are useful to you too ♥
Fix Watery Soup–
If your soup is to thin (watery) mix a tablespoon of softened butter and a tablespoon of flour in a bowl and whisk until creamy ( roux). Slowly whisk it into your soup and taa daa! I had to have one taa daa moment. Okay, now it’s out of my system lets move on 🙂
Fix Burned Rice-
If you make rice in a saucepan and not a rice cooker this probably has happened more times than you’d like to admit (I mean I would like to admit). A quick fix is to place the heel of a loaf of bread on top of the rice and cover it with the lid and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Then scoop the rice out of the saucepan being careful not to get any of the burned rice on the bottom of the saucepan. The bread absorbs the burned smell and taste.
Remedy For Over Baked Cookies–
Put the crispy cookies in a plastic container with a lid and add a few slices of apple. Let them sit overnight. Also 5-8 seconds in a microwave can also work wonders.
Get the Most Juice from Your Lemon or Lime
This easy trick is better than rolling your citrus on a counter. Cold citrus doesn’t release its juice as easily. Place your lemons and limes in the microwave for 15 or 20 seconds just before juicing. Get them warm NOT hot. Do not exceed 20 seconds.
Remedy for Under Baked Cake–
I don’t have a photo for this one but this is a terrific trick
If you discover your cake has a gooey middle and it’s too late to put it back in the oven. Cut out the center of the cake (the gooey bit) and fill the hole with whipped cream. (or ice cream). This is a great if your cake falls in the center too.
Hoping your weekend is a sweet one.
