One thing about cooking that I learned from my husband is to slow down. I never noticed, but I always cooked "fast". The burner on the stove was always turned up high... I needed to get things going quick...!!!
Now I approach cooking in a much more relaxed manner. On Sunday mornings, early, I'll put on my vegetables from the freezer. I put them in the pot with a lid on a low/medium setting and let them gradually come to a boil, then reduce the heat even more. They cook gently while our Sunday morning routines are taking place.
I am even reluctant to turn the burner on high to bring water to a boil for pasta now! That is only reserved for those rush suppers when we have to be somewhere quick!!!
This also saves a lot of boil overs and stove top clean up! I can't tell you the mess a pot of boiled over chicken makes!!! I speak from experience, plenty of experience!
So my tip for this week's Kitchen Tip Tuesday is to slow down and enjoy the cooking process. If you have gotten into that rushed, gotta get it done right now, mode, step back and smell the bread!!!
