We covered the best cooking tips in existence —the next logical step is to cover kitchen tips, no? Here are a few game-changing things to remember before getting crazy in your kitchen. No one's really sure why, but crumpling up newspaper and stacking it into smelly Tupperware overnight has been known to finally get rid of bad odors. Just make sure to thoroughly wash your containers after the fact, as newspapers aren't exactly clean.
If any of your pots are boiling over, quickly place a wooden spoon across the rim—that'll settle the frothy bubbles and prevent more over-boiling.
Seriously, it's a foolproof way of cleaning your dirty vegetables when hand-washing won't suffice. Make sure there's no soap in the machine, of course, and a simple rinsing cycle will do the trick. Trust us: If you put some dish soap on your dish rag, heat the rag itself for a few minutes, leave the rag in the microwave for about half an hour, return to the rag, and wipe the walls of the microwave down, you will be free of that fishy microwave smell that's been plaguing you since, well, the last time you microwaved fish.
You can use an actual filing system to hold your baking sheets upright and in an orderly fashion. It might not look very cute, but it'll make your life infinitely easier than having to climb to the top of your highest cabinet to get to them.
In the off chance you drop a raw egg I mean, it never really happens I'm kidding, this is the worst and most common kitchen problem everthrow some salt on the remnants. It'll soak up the egg whites. Dab some ketchup yes, ketchup on a cloth and rub it all over your copper.
When measuring out super sticky ingredients hey, honey, I see youcoat your measuring cup with a butter- or oil-based cooking spray first. It ensures the sticky substance will slide right out and prevent you from having to scrub at your cups forever afterward. Kitchen Tips and Tools. Type keyword s to search. Today's Top Stories.

Use salt to soak up eggs. Polish your copper with ketchup. Microwave your sponge.If you ask anyone I work with, I run extremely hot. Like, every day when I get to work, regardless of how I got there, I am sweating. Whether it was that or the fact that I just enjoy welcoming people to criticize me on the internet that inspired me to pitch a story about cooking naked, I'll never know for sure.
But somehow, I ended up getting the assignment. For those wondering what such an asinine task could possibly accomplish, the answer is actually quite a lot!
Roasting veggies butt naked is convenient. Cooking pasta in the nude is sexy. Simmering cauliflower gnocchi sans clothing is dangerous. Not, like, in a hot way. All of the above led to smarter and more comfortable choices about what I consumed over the course of the week, and that, my friends, is not nothing. What follows is seven days in the life of someone who needs to be more discerning about her sauces, her fibers, and her pitches.
Someone who will also try to convince you to start cooking naked more often. My first order of business was trying to determine how naked I was going to be while I was cooking for the next week. If your vodka sauce bubbles over and splatters directly onto your favorite and only nude bra, do you deserve it?
Does this nakedness apply to any form of consuming food? Like, am I to answer the door, tits amok, should I decide to order in? Oh god, my work cafeteria. What then?? Oh god. Any other situation allowed for a socially acceptable amount of clothes. I stripped off every article of clothing on my body while my sauce simmered and returned to find it still splattering all over.
It took all of four seconds for me to get very low-key burnt by minuscule tomato bits all over the top half of my bod, and about four more seconds to decide I hated this experiment. I sloshed a bunch of cauliflower gnocchi bits into bowls for myself and my husband and ate it all very quickly and angrily on the couch.
Still naked. Why not. OK, listen again. Long story short, I got very constipated from the influx of fiber to my sad, un-clothed gut and I spent the day at home, mostly naked, but wrapped in my chunkiest-knit West Elm blanket.
When the delivery guy showed up with my clear broth, I was wearing a giant sweatshirt and boy shorts. To hide both my silly tomato burns and my shame. Things started to turn mid-week when I returned to work battered and bloated but emboldened. I started the day by shunning my usual bathrobe routine and going at my apple and peanut butter without wearing anything. Why bother trying to hide something you know is going to bother you regardless, ya know? It was nice! I was dying inside, but it was nice!
Anyway, I put on my schlumpiest clothes and headed in to work.I'd thought we'd just about exhausted all there was to exhaust of the first season of my show, Iconic Eats have you heard of it?
I've given you 11 theme park food guides, countless Insta Stories, and even a six-minute blooper reel of me just generally being a disaster in Florida—a culmination of a year's hard work! And yet Chelsea—yes, the Chelsea from the behind the camera—and I sat down in the Delish kitchen ahead of season two to talk about the best foods we've eaten, the worst experiences we've had, and the general glee, angst, and wonder that comes with eating your way through amusement parks for a living.
In the video above, we go through the questions we get about the show the most. Curious about our leftovers? Yeah, we talk about that. Want to know how this whole glorious undertaking came to be in the first place? Yup, we touch on that, too.
Wondering why I haven't been swept away for television yet? Yeah, same! So, do enjoy this look back at our first handful of episodes. Iconic Eats is a marvelous mess I'm very proud of, and I'm hoping you continue to love it as much as we continue to love making it for you.
That said, if you can possibly come up with a question we didn't answer in the minute video up top, I'm good with you bailing on the show completely. Kitchen Tips and Tools. Type keyword s to search.

Tess Koman has what might be a dream job: she goes to amusement parks and tries all the food possible in the course of a day. This is not what she thought was possible when she went to a small liberal arts college and studied English while wishing she could be an intern at Cosmopolitan.
Koman spent the next seven years writing on various topics until Delish. I can write about how I think a Dole Whip tastes and that will upset people very much. There are certain facets to food that some people are very interested in.
Her series, Iconic Eatswas pitched as something totally different, it turns out. With the cooperation of the production team, who happened to be very flexible at Disney, we ate our way through Disneyland, put it on YouTube and it blew up so fast. That brings with it great fun and perks but also, being a person on YouTube can bring out the worst in some people. Plenty of antisemitic things. The job has become to put food in my face.
As I combed through the comments, there was productive feedback there as well, people wanted to see the prices of the food or had ambitions to do something similar. We were providing some kind of service.

Then we get in there and we're playing Clemson, the team we lost to in the final minutes last year. I'd have a little edge about. I at least think they'll beat Clemson. I think coach (Dabo) Swinney has done a great job with the culture there to do what he's done in a relatively short period of time just winning ballgames and staying on top.
Clemson is looking good as well. College football is crazy, man. Anybody can be beat on any given day so you have to hold onto your seat and watch what happens.
I have my guy, Dexter Lawrence at Clemson. We played high school ball together so I have to go with Clemson. I watched them play all the time, Georgia, I've seen them play all the time. There are a lot of good teams in there right now. I'm a Georgia Dawg. I see them on TV and see what kind of players they have. I think whoever wins that game will go on.
They have the experience of being in the playoff so I think that would be my guess. The material on this site may not be reproduced, distributed, transmitted, cached or otherwise used, except with the prior written permission of Alabama Media Group.

The picks with the winning team in bold at the top of each prediction: Champion: Georgia "I'm thinking heavy on Georgia because they're a hard fighting team and they have a bunch of guys on that team that can make plays when it's called their way.
Oklahoma "One reason: Baker Mayfield. Clemson "They're ranked first in defensive efficiency and their defensive line is unbelievable. Clemson "Well my brother is a linebacker at Clemson, so I have to go with them, for his sake.
Georgia "Georgia, all the way.

The transport was a mini bus taking 16 of us comfortably from site to site with various comfort stops on the way. There is a little walking to be done for example up to Dettifoss that cannot be avoided but all the walks were really strolls and nothing over taxing.
The evening meals that were provided as part of the package were either in the accommodation or at local restaurants and were of a very high quality.
There are optional extra's such as Whale Watching and the Thermal baths which although we pre booked could be booked on the tour. Transfer back to the airport was provided. In summary this was a very well organised tour both before leaving home and whilst there. The program is varied and interesting, capturing all the major attractions. Would highly recommend the tour to anyone wanting to see the main sites but not do all the legwork of a self drive. A friend and I (who live in Australia and UK respectively) were keen to do a self drive tour of Iceland as we could have autonomy and flexibility and avoid the tour bus hordes.
We found Nordic Visitor through Google and I'm so glad we did. We chose the 10 day Full Circle tour - which comes with a rental car, pre booked accommodation, detailed road map, local mobile phone, GPS and many suggestions for destinations and activities. We opted for a 4x4 vehicle (highly recommended as there is a fair amount of off-roading) and budget accommodation which was pretty much guesthouses.
That's part of the deal anywhere really. There is so much to say about the trip itself so feel free to send a message if you want more info. Nearly all the arrangements went without a hitch and what didn't go smoothly wasn't due to Nordic Visitor getting it wrong and indeed didn't ruin the trip at all (eg the guesthouse in Reykjavik wasn't aware of my travelling companion's very early arrival and were not prepared).
My only negative comment is some of the worthwhile sights might not be on their recommended itinerary so do a little research of your own. Also a bit more time (a day perhaps) in the north east of the country would have been ideal.
I dropped by their office in Reykjavik at the end of the tour (a little tricky to find as it is tucked away on the edge of town) and was pleasantly surprised by a request to do a brief video of our tour highlights for other travellers.
I received a beautiful hardcover book of Icelandic photographs for my trouble. Iceland is a Josie, Puerto Rico Iceland Grand Tour, July 2015 16 amazing days in Iceland Not only did Nordic Visitor delivered on everything that was needed, all the extra tours that were booked by them exceeded our expectations.
Spent 16 days on a self-drive tour of Iceland including west fjords. Every detail was taken care of, the car was excellent, the accommodations that were booked were more than what was needed. They gave us a telephone and had regular contact with us. Assisted us every time we needed any assistance. Will recommend this company and will be more than happy to use again in the future.
Tip to travelers: Do everything with lots of time. We planned this trip more than 7 months in advance. Find about weather condition, climate and clothing needs. Overall, we had a wonderful time and saw a lot of beautiful scenery. Overall we got exactly what we came to see.
