Fresh, quality ingredients affect outcome
A great way to ensure more flavor is to use in-season produce and high quality, local dairy and eggs when available.
Let cooked meat rest before slicing
This allows the juices to reincorporate, leading to a moist final product.
Crack eggs on the counter, not the edge of the bowl
Flat surfaces create less shattered shells that can end up in your food.
Preheat the oven
Seriously. Putting food into a heating oven can cause it to burn on one side or cook unevenly.
Refresh old spices yearly
Spices have a shelf life. They won’t make you sick, but they will taste like nothing. If it no longer has a distinct smell, get rid of it.
