For the amount of time we spend cooking and cleaning and even socialising in our kitchens, here are a few handy tips to help you out.

  • If you hate the way your hands smell after chopping up onions, fresh lemon juice will remove the smell.

  • To save money (and not waste food) pour all your leftover vegetables and the water in which you steamed or cooked them in into a large container in your freezer. When the container is full, add some tomato juice or chicken/vegetable stock, a bit of seasonings and you'll have a 'free' soup.

  • Never soak vegetables after you slice them, they will lose much of their nutritional value.

  • If you dislike the odor from cooking cabbage, cauliflower, etc., add a tiny bit of vinegar to the water before cooking.

  • Perk up soggy lettuce by soaking it in a mixture of lemon juice and cold water.

  • Egg shells can be easily removed from hard-boiled eggs if they are quickly rinsed in cold water after they are boiled. Also, add a tiny drop of food coloring into the water to help you tell the hard boiled from the raw eggs in your refrigerator.

  • To prevent cheese from sticking to a grater, lightly spray it with cooking spray.

  • To keep hot oil from spattering, sprinkle a little salt or flour into the pan before frying.

  • Lemon juice rubbed onto fish before grilling will enhance it's flavour and help it maintain its colour.
