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!”

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

“Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
