dish by spraying it with oven cleaner. Let it sit for 
30 minutes and wipe off.

Juicy Steaks

For tender, juicy steaks try marinating them in red wine in the fridge for up to 24 hours.

Perfect Cabbages

When buying cabbage, look for heads that appear heavier than their size with crisp leaves.

Try using carrots instead of sugar to sweeten your sauces.

Bathing Leeks

To clean leeks chop them first, then give them a bath in cold water and drain in a colander.

Cleaning Mushrooms

Mushrooms should be wiped off with a damp cloth and not washed under the faucet since they are like sponges and will absorb the water.

Stop Crying!

To avoid crying when cutting onions, cut the onions into two parts and place them in water for 15 minutes before chopping them.

Boiling Noodles

When boiling noodles drain all the hot water and add cold water. This way all the noodles won’t stick together.
