Kitchen Hacks

I actually hate reading articles that claim that they have some useful hacks. It always turns out to be mainly rubbish and stuff I’d never want to use or do because it’s just ineffective or it makes the house look ugly. However, I think I have some good ideas for use in the kitchen.

My first is concerning bags clips. I have never liked using those because they can easily fall off. So, I use something that definitely won’t fall off. I use elastics. I just fold over the opened bag of frozen broccoli and then hold the fold in place with the elastic.

The next one is concerning reheating certain types of leftovers. Some people hate reheated food from the day before. So, if that’s you, then go ahead and skip this two paragraph section. I find leftovers just fine to eat the next day. Of the foods I make ahead and reheat are bacon and waffles. For bacon, past one day isn’t good. For waffles, three days is the max for me. After that, they just lose their flavor.

To reheat the waffles, I just use the toaster oven on the warm setting for five minutes. To reheat the bacon, I do it differently as it has grease. You don’t want to overheat the bacon also as it will be gross. If you do it in the microwave, that makes it gross to me as well. I reheat it on the stove, but on a piece of foil instead of dirtying another pot. Usually, i will put it over the burner after I have used it and shut it off. Only takes a few minutes to be nice and warm. But you can turn on the burner on the low setting also. I have a stove where the top is flat. I don’t have burners that stick up and out. So, if you don’t have a flat top stove, this won’t work for you.
