Who has time to cook at home these days??

Me. That’s who. (And you probably do, too – although you might think you don’t.)

Regardless – for those of us who know the joys of cooking at home (i.e. delicious-ness, financial-badass-ness), these 16 Kitchen Skills Every Home Chef Must Know is a great list of reminders and tips.

My favorite: the Soft-to-Hard-Boiled Egg Timer Chart. I’m always a mess when it comes to hard boiling eggs. (Rookie confession: I always start them in cold water and slowly heat. #busted).

Here’s my addition to the list:

Make Your Spice Mix First
When spicing chicken, pork, etc., I always found myself peppering the meat, flipping the meat, washing my hands, and then re-peppering the meat, and then moving the meat to the heat, washing my hands, etc.

Better to put your salt, pepper, spices, etc, into a small bowl first. Then use one hand to handle the meat, and the other (clean) hand to dip in and out of the spices – even if it’s just salt and pepper!
