Tips and Tricks


Mealprepping

For me mealprepping is more than making ready meals. It is also prepping ingredients and in the most economical way possible.

Homemade Nutella

Did you know you can make your own Nutella without any sugar?!!! Well I did the other day.

Learn to Pickle

You don’t need a vegetable garden or a fancy party as an exuse to make your own pickles. Neither do you have to preseve food for the whole winter. I use to make pickles often to not waste small vegetables I have in the refrigerator. It could be a cucumber I worry I will not use before it will go soft, a carrot or two, a small piece of cabbage, some apple or pear, anything really. It is fast and easy!

Watermelon Popsicles and Ice Cubes

There is nothing better a warm day than a slice of watermelon. I love to take it with me to the beach or on a picknick.

You can freeze watermelon. Cut small cubes and freeze and use them as ice-cubes in a drink or just a glass of water. Cut them in icecreamshapes and stick a Popsicle stick in each. Freeze and you have a watermelon icecream or cold drinks to look forward to!

Aquafaba Meringues

When Cooking with chickpeas from a can, what do you do with the liquid if you don’t add it to your dish? Do you throw it away? Did you know the liquid called Aquafaba can be used instead of eggwhites? I made meringues from Aquafaba the other day. Had some fun with piping multiple colors as well.

Bouquet garni

Bouquet garni, which is French for “garnished bouquet,” is a classic herb mixture used for preparing stocks, soups, casseroles, meats, and vegetables.
