Having a simple kitchen is a lot easier than you would think. I keep my pantry stocked with staples and things I may need in a pinch. But, even being well prepared there are those days when kitchen shortcuts are a meal saver.
After a long day at work, the last thing I want to do is spend a long time in the kitchen preparing a meal. I save time where I can and I am so excited to share one of my favorite time saving kitchen tips with you.
How to Peel Garlic
I can’t tell you how much garlic I use, it’s a lot. I buy it at my wholesale club so I always have it on hand. I chop it, slice it, dice it, turn it into a paste, and roast it. But after a long day, when I need whole garlic cloves I have no patience to peel it.
With my kitchen shortcut I am on my way in just 7 seconds and in my kitchen that is a dinner saver!
With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.
