Two Kitchen Tips for Super Bowl Sunday

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Here are two of my favorite kitchen tips. The first one is better explained with a picture:

Put wine corks under the handles of your pot lids and you will never need a potholder again when lifting the lid off. I have them on all of mine, and I have for years. The other day a friend of mine said, “You should post that tip on your blog. It’s so good.” I happen to agree. Plus, it’s a testament to how much I enjoy wine.


Here’s my other tip: when you finish chopping raw garlic or onion, it can be tough to get the smell off your hands. Simply rub your hands on anything that has stainless steel–a spatula, the sides of your sink, even the pot lid as long as it’s not hot. Stainless steel somehow neutralizes the odors.

That’s my domestic side coming out as you all start cooking for Super Bowl. Or not.

Feel free to share your favorite tips.
