Life is a Little Easier with These Simple Kitchen Hacks

Sometimes it's the simple things that can make all of the difference. The holidays are busy enough that I'm sure all of us could benefit from these simple kitchen hacks. I personally utilize all of these tricks and they have really made my life easier. If you want to watch me go into a little more detail about these ideas, you can check out my video here.

1. Baking Kits
If you're going to be doing a lot of baking this season, making lots will save you a lot of time and headaches along the way. Pre-measure your dry ingredients for the recipes on your baking list and bags them separately in sandwich bags. Then combine them into a gallon storage bag and label it. This way, when you're ready to bake, all you have to do is grab your bag and then measure your wet ingredients. This is such a time saver!

2. Add baking soda when boiling eggs
Add a tbsp of baking soda to the water when boiling eggs. This makes them so easy to peel which saves time and eliminates frustration.

3. Use a bundt pan to cut corn off of the cob
This trick helps to contain the mess that generally comes with cutting corn off of the cob. After your corn is cooked and has cooled enough to handle, place in end in the middle of a bundt pan. When you cut the corn off, the kernels will fall into the pan and you can easily pour them into your freezer bags with no mess.

4. Use cloth napkins to store your vegetables and herbs
Make your fresh herbs, onions, and other vegetables last longer with this easy trick. Store all like items together in a freezer bag with a cloth napkin. Them keep them in the vegetable drawer of your fridge. The napkin absorbs the moisture allowing your items to have a longer shelf life.

I hope that these kitchen hacks help you during this season and all year! Do you already do any of these? What other hacks do you love?
