Use hot dogs for a quick meatball substitute.


Your toddlers will be amazed with this trick. Once you take a bite, you will admit that your toddlers have pretty good taste. Check it out:
Try spearing chunks of hot dog right out of the package with strands of uncooked spaghetti. Then boil the spaghetti as normal. In the end, you’ll have a plate of noodles threaded through the hot dog chunks like beads on a necklace. This is edible jewelry at its best.

Bacon is not a side to your pancakes. It is part of your pancakes.


The bacon pancake is not just a song from Adventure Time. Why keep these two complementary foods separate on your plate?
Try dredging cooked bacon slices in pancake batter before you throw them into the skillet. When you see grease bubbles forming and bursting on your bacon pancake, flip it and give the other side the same treatment.

Cooking hacks of the day

You can quickly ripen bananas by baking them.


This works best if you’re planning on using the bananas for cooking (so, for instance, if you’re overcome with a sudden hankering for banana bread). Put the fruit on a lined baking sheet, then load it in a 300 degree oven. The bananas will ripen quickly, and they’ll start to turn black—ideal for banana bread—around the 40-minute mark.

The oven trick also works on avocados.


Take a hard, unripe avocado, cover it in foil, and put it into a 200 degree oven. You’ll need to leave the avocado in the oven for about an hour. The avocado will taste a bit different (not worse, but different), so you’re better off using it as a last resort when you’ve got some urgent guacamole to make.

Another way to quickly ripen an avocado is to put it in a drink cozy overnight. The cozy traps in the ethylene gas that ripens the avocado, speeding up the process.

How to eat Oreos in milk

Posted: January 2, 2018 in Recipes, Tutorials

You can use a fork to dip your Oreos in milk without making a mess


Simply stick the fork into the creme filling, then dip. As an added benefit, this makes you look slightly more dignified

Or if you’re looking for something a bit more satisfying, dip Oreos in milk and freeze them


Be sure to put them in a freezer bag before popping them in your freezer. This gives you the flavor of cookies and cream in a slightly more convenient package.

This is also a great way to set up for a cookies-and-cream milkshake. Take the frozen Oreos and add them to your blender along with milk and ice cream for a delicious, decadent treat.
