• 5 tips to streamline your kitchen prep

    overcoming overwhelm banner

    I love feeding my family good food. Nourishing food. Food they will remember and that will be a part of their childhood memories.

    Food that will bring them back home time and again as adults…

    But, I don’t like spending all of my time in the kitchen. Seems like a funny paradox huh? I’ve done both- having popped things out of packages and boxes to warm in the oven (or even the microwave).

    And I have slaved making scratch meal after scratch meal. And worse yet (for someone like me) I’ve spent waaay too much time doing the resultant dishes…

    Luckily this isn’t an EITHER OR scenario. Because what I have found out over the years, is that you can cook from scratch without burning yourself out or going crazy.

    It can be (or stay) fun. Really.

    It just takes a bit of planning. Not even alot of planning. And a few simple ‘shortcuts’ that can cut hours off your meal prep time.

    Want to know what I mean?

      Great tips! One thing I do is batch cooking. Whenever I make meat sauce, meatballs, curry or anything else that freezes well, I make 2-3 times what we need and freeze the rest. I freeze it in zip locks and push it flat so it fits east in the freezer nicely and thaws easily. Having these in hand has saved the day many times!

    I thought we were doing well before, but you have really helped clarify, simplify and basically transform our kitchen.
