Ever dumped an entire batch of spaghetti noodles down the drain because you tried to do it without a colander? How about cooked a batch of pancakes but forgot the baking powder or the butter? Been there, done that. In my quest to stop kitchen blunders, I’ve come across some helpful cooking tips and tricks. I hope you find some to cut down your time in the kitchen.
