10 “Food Hacks” . . . That Aren’t Dumb (or are they?)

If you’ve spent any time on social media over the past decade, you’ve seen a TON of supposed “food hacks.”  Many of them don’t actually work, and the ones that do, are usually kind of lame.

Like, “bake cookies in your car on a hot day!” . . . basically EVERY “hack” involving eggs . . . and “infuse vodka with grilled cheese!”  (Actually, I still need to try that.)  (???)

A website has collected the best food hacks . . . the ones they claim are actually worth it . . . and they include:

1.  Using a baby monitor to keep an eye on the temperature of a smoker.

2.  Eating a hard taco OVER a soft tortilla shell . . . and with everything that drops out of the first taco, you get a second taco.

3.  Mathematically, one 18-inch pizza has more pizza than TWO 12-inch pies.

4.  Mixing a few cereals together, for variety AND to regulate sweetness levels.

5.  For easy-to-eat s’mores, try making them in ice cream cones.

6.  If you don’t have a cake dome, use a Tupperware container upside down.

7.  Using a ramen packet for popcorn seasoning . . . just mix the powder with some melted butter, and maybe some chili powder.

8.  Using the bottom of a bottle of wine . . . if it has a deep indented center . . . as a press to make homemade ravioli.

9.  Steaming your vegetables WHILE cooking pasta noodles . . . by placing a cookie cooling rack over your pot of boiling spaghetti, adding the veg on it, then laying the lid over the top so they’ll steam over the pasta.

10.  Putting a koozie on your ice cream pint . . . so you can keep your hand warm, and the ice cream cold.
