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!”

10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

10 Small Changes To Make Your House Feel Like A Home

Your house is more than just a building that you live in. It should be a home that makes you feel welcome as soon as you open the front door.

Making your house feel like a home is not something that simply happens on its own. You need to make some changes to a house when you move in, to give it that cozy, warm feeling that turns it into a true home. To help you speed the process, follow this guide to 10 small changes to make your house feel like a home.

1. Make the Windows Your Own

When you move into a home, they often come with boring Venetian blinds or less than attractive curtains.

One of the best ways you can instantly warm your home and make it showcase your style is to add some new window dressing. Adding beautiful curtains not only improves your home’s appearance, but it can also help to control the temperature.

2. Put up Some Art

If you have a lot of bare walls in your home, it will seem sterile no matter how beautiful your paint or wallpaper is.

Hanging art on the walls will instantly give it personality and make it feel like home.

3. Improve the Aroma

A house that is not filled with inviting smells will never feel like a home. There are loads of ways you can make your home smell nice. There are tons of air fresheners on the market you can use.

Incense and scented candles are a nice option as well. Don’t forget that baking in a home is also a great way to fill it with an aroma that instantly smells like home as soon as you open the front door.

4. Put out Lots of Pillows and Throws

A great way to make your home look warm and inviting is to place lots of pillows and throws out on the furniture. It is much better to have too many pillows than not enough.

There is nothing like the feeling of sinking into a cushiony pillow that feels like a cloud to make you feel like you are at home.

5. Instantly Class up Your Closet

If your closet is filled with wire or plastic hangers, it will never truly feel homey. To instantly make your closet feel classy, change out your old hangers for wooden ones.

Not only do they look great, but they are better for hanging your clothes as well.

6. Improve Your Air Quality

One of the most overlooked ways to make your house feel more like a home is to improve its air quality.

The easiest and best way to upgrade the air quality in your home is to change the old, dirty filters in your furnace regularly. Get some air filters delivered to your home so that you always have some on hand.

7. Fill it with Plants

Another way to improve the air quality in your home is to fill it with plants. You should have plants in every room of your home.

They help to improve the air quality and they look beautiful. As well as making your home appear homier, plants also help to boost your mood and lower your stress levels.

8. Change the Doorknobs

Most people don’t really give their doorknobs a second thought unless they are broken. That is a shame because changing your doorknobs is an easy way to add personality to your home.

Changing your old, boring doorknobs to new ones that are works of art will instantly brighten your home.

9. Upgrade Your Tub or Shower

There is nothing like luxuriating in a whirlpool bath or steam shower to make the cares of the day melt away. Your family deserves a bit of luxury when they are in their bathroom.

Install a new shower or tub today to make your bathroom worthy of a place in your home.

10. Fresh Cut Flowers

You can make any room in your house feel homier by placing a vase full of beautiful flowers in it. The gorgeous look and intoxicating aroma of fresh cut flowers will immediately brighten your day when you encounter them.

You don’t have to make all these changes at once. Try one or two a day though, and your house will feel like a home before you know it. The trick is to constantly keep adding these homey touches to make your home a place worthy of its name.
