A Complete Cooking Cheat Sheet Everyone Should Have!

A Complete Cooking Cheat Sheet Everyone Should Have!

We live in an amazing time where getting a meal is as easy as going to a drive-thru, and having somebody hand you food without you ever having to get out of your vehicle. Better yet, we can call a restaurant and have them bring us food right to our door.

This convenience has made it too easy for people not to bother with learning how to cook a proper meal for themselves, or their family. If you are one of these people mentioned, and you are just starting to learn how to make a good home-cooked meal, you no longer need to feel too intimidated! Even if you are a moderate (or experienced cook), there is still quite a bit to remember in the kitchen. It can really get confusing, especially if you have a lot going on.

Thanks to Krisgo from Do It And How, you can have the ultimate kitchen cheat sheet! This cheat sheet has literally everything you need to know about preparing almost anything. With so many different foods that you can make, and even more ways you can prepare them, this cheat sheet is even handy for the experienced home chef.

One of the biggest and most important perks of having this list around has to be food safety. If you are a new cook, or are finding your self cooking a new kind of meat, you want to be very careful that you cook it properly, or else you can make yourself, and others very sick.

This list helps you to remember what temperature all kinds of meats should be, and how long to cook them so they are safe to eat. It will also tell you how long you should cook all different kinds of vegetables, based on how you plan on cooking them. If you are anything like me, it teaches you that there are more than one way to cook vegetables!

This list is also really helpful for measurement conversions. I could not tell you how many times I have stopped what I was doing, and ran to my computer (or cell phone) to look up different measurement conversions because the recipe I was following put the measurements into ounces, while I was trying to measure by cups!

Another neat thing this list features is how long you can store things in the freezer, before they go bad. I couldn’t tell you how many times I have thrown food away because freezer-burn got the best of me. This list also has a pretty cool illustration on food storage in the fridge as well!

There is so much more featured on this cheat sheet. It is really well organized and easy to follow along. With so much to remember when it comes to preparing and storing your food, it would be crazy not to have this in your kitchen at home. Even if you are an excellent cook and have a lot of experience, you can still benefit from this handy little sheet.

This cheat sheet really does take a lot of the stress out of cooking, especially if you are a novice. It also makes cooking a meal a lot more enjoyable experience for you. You can say so long to the old days of take-out (or TV dinners) and have confidence in yourself the next time you are making a meal!

For more information about this helpful cheat sheet (or to get a copy of your own), visit Krisgo’s website Do It And How, where you can even print it off! Make sure that you leave a comment on her blog and say “Thanks!”

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
