Speedy Solutions in the Kitchen

If you're looking for ways to speed up in the kitchen and get things done faster, I've got some great tips for you! I found these over a decade ago in the Women's Day magazine and have enjoyed using them.

  • Fill a large shaker-top spice jar with confectioner's sugar for dusting cakes or with flour for dusting greased baking pans.
  • Bring eggs to room temperature quickly by putting them in a bowl of warm, not hot, water for 5-10 minutes.
  • For a pretty flower design on sugar cookies press the bottom of an empty plastic thread spool {label removed}.
  • Rinse {don't bother peeling} garlic cloves if you're removing them after cooking.
  • Remove fat from stews and soups by chilling them with a plastic wrap covering the surface. The fat will harden and come off when you lift off the wrap.
  • It's easier to separate egg yolks from whites when the eggs are cold.
  • For nicely shaped, same-size meatballs, use a 1 1/2 inch spring-action scooper.
  • To soften butter quickly, cut in pieces, put it on a plate and cover with a metal bowl that's been rinsed with hot water.
  • Slip your hand into a plastic sandwich bag before pressing a buttery cookie-crumb or graham-cracker crust into a pie plate.

What other tricks do you use in your kitchen to speed things up?
