Kitchen hack – egg slicer

Why didn’t I think of this?!  Had to share. This really is genius.

Kitchen hack – get more juice from your citrus

This is so simple, yet I had no idea!  Spoiler alert…cut your lemons and limes lengthwise!  You’ll get way more juice from them!


Genius food hack

I saw this video on another blog I read and had to share this.  If you try this at home, be sure your knife is nice and sharp, otherwise you’ll be left with half-sliced, banged-up tomatoes.  And, after you slice all those teenie-tiny tomatoes, may I suggest you roast them in the oven and serve them on a toasted baguette slice with some fresh basil.  It’s the perfect snack (or appetizer) anytime of the year.


Roasted Cherry Tomatoes //

Cherry tomatoes
Olive oil
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Toss the sliced tomatoes in olive oil on a sheet pan.  Generously sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes until soft and tender.  Serve as a side dish (great with grilled meats) or on toasted baguette slices with some fresh basil and additional olive oil.
