Always have a supply of oil
We’ve all heard advice not to cook with more than one oil in a day. But what about in your cooking? If you don’t have a supply of oil on hand, you can always make your own. Just make sure to have access to a pot of oil, as well as a small quantity of butter, cream, etc. You can also make your own salsa, tamales, sardines, and other fresh, ready-made meals. When you have a supply of oil, you can always use it in your cooking. So if you’re having steak and potatoes for dinner, you can use your oil to cook them. Or, you can use it to sautee veggies, like bell peppers, broccoli, or carrots. And if you’re having soups or stews, they can all be made with oil.
Don’t forget to thaw your meat
This one is pretty important! Whether you’re eating steak for dinner or mac and cheese for weekend mornings, you’ll want to make sure it’s properly hot. This means you want to cook your meat at a high temperature. You’ll want it to be thoroughly cooked, but not too hot. If you’re having steak for lunch, you may want to cook it at lower temperatures, so the meat is fully cooked but still has a little personality. If you’re having steak for dinner, you don’t want it too cold, so it doesn’t fall through the cracks during the rest of the meal. If you’re having soups or stews for the day, you don’t want them too soupy you want them to be lightly sticky, not oozing all over the place. So make sure you have a few ice cubes in your fridge, too, so you don’t go completely overboard and end up with a messy meal.
Learn how to dice vegetables
This one may surprise you, but we love this one the most! Learning how to properly dice vegetables is the foundation of all good cooking. If you’ve been eating healthy, you’ve likely come to appreciate the versatility of these tools. There are many ways to cook vegetables, and it can be hard to decide which method is best for you. You may prefer to use a vegetable processor to puree or puree/dice vegetables into a gratin, or you may prefer to use a food processor to puree up veggies and then cook them in the slow cooker. Whatever method you use, the goal is to get as many vegetable bits and pieces out of the food as possible. This means you want to make sure you have a supply of vegetables on hand. And if you’re having vegetables for dinner, you don’t want them all tasteless — you want them to be clumped together in your mouth and have a little texture. So you can use a knife to cut vegetables into smaller pieces and then puree them together with the rest of the ingredients.

Don’t overmix ingredients
This is what we’re all worried about! Overmixing ingredients can lead to badly seasoned dishes like those from South America. You want to make sure all of your ingredients are thoroughly mixed, but not too much is added. If you’re having soups or stews for the day, you don’t want them too soupy — they want to be lightly sticky, not oozing all over the place. So make sure you have a few ice cubes in your fridge, too, so you don’t go too overboard and end up with a messy meal.
Experiment with different textures
This one may surprise you, but it’s something we all have an issue with. Remember to always clean your plates after you’ve finished eating. It’s important to do this so you don’t end up with any dirt or uneven plate surfaces. But when it comes to stuffed peppers, we like to eat them fresh which is why we love to try out new textures for our stuffed peppers. Sometimes we like to stuff them with cheese instead of the standard cheddar, or we might add crushed-up pops to the side. Experiment with different sauces, powders, and other ingredients to make your stuffed peppers stand out. You never know what’s going to come into your kitchen and make you say, “Wait, what’s that?”
Use fresh and/or frozen food frequently
This one might shock you, but really, we love fresh vegetables too. This means we’re happiest when we’re having vegetables fresh from the garden. And for summer, we’re all about having fresh vegetables our size, not the ones you might buy in a store, but the ones you can grow yourself. And if you’re having veggies for dinner, you don’t want them too bland you want them to be lightly sticky, not oozing all over the place for Food. So you want to try out adding some nuts or seeds to your salad or making your oatmeal featuring sprouts or sprouts salad.
