3 of my Favorite Cooking Hacks

Simple Cooking HAcks

There are some days I LOOOOOVE cooking and other days that make me want to flail on the floor like a child and never deal with a stove again….

I digress….

However on either occasion I have a few secret weapons that I just HAVE to share with you.

1. Crock Pot– DO IT! Buy one. I didn’t for the longest time because I thought they were for grannies and the lunch lady.

WRONG!!!!!

Crock pots are GENIUS!!!

I love throwing flank steak or chicken in there for about 6 hours on low. It comes out perfect, juicy and SUPER tender. To jazz it up, you can add in some diced onion,peppers and tomatoes and it will come out more like a stew. Add with a side of rice (or throw the rice in after a few hours and it is a perfect dish that will last for DAYS)…. you are welcome!

2. Crock Pot Liners– Crock pots make amazing meals BUT the clean up SUCKS!!! The juices get all stuck on the sides and takes a lifetime to scrub off untiiiiiiiil crock pot liners. LIFE savers!

A 4 pack runs about $2.50- cannot beat it for time saving and zero frustration.

3. Salt Free Mrs. Dash Seasonings– Welcome to my freaking fiesta baby! I add salt to my meals before I eat it, in case I am adding a sauce or condiment so that it is not sodium overload or if cooking for someone else. But sometimes during prep for competitions or events I kick it with these Salt Free options so that I am not gagging on cold bland cod while contemplating the meaning of life (tell us how you really feel).

Legit Mrs. Dash- SO good!

I don’t have time to figure out which seasonings make my shrimp taste like a fajita, but Momma Dash did and I thank her for it.mrs dash salt free packets
