Save a dish (and your mind)
Why on Earth were we ever making brownie mix in a big mixing bowl, only to pour it all into a brownie pan of the same volume, dribbling ooey-gooey (albeit ooey-gooey goodness), everywhere? Just throw everything straight in the brownie pan and mix it all up there! Save yourself washing a difficult dish. This tip will really resonate with those of you baking your way through lockdown.
To get the tendon out of your chicken tenderloin, pull the tiny bit sticking out through the tines of a fork and give it a good pull. The whole tendon will come out all at once, in one piece. You can thank TikTok-er @raising_krazies for this one.
This egg hack
Instead of peeling teeny, tiny pieces of shell off your hardboiled egg until it’s free, just crack a small hole at the top of the egg and a slightly bigger one at the bottom. Then, play the smaller hole like a trombone and blow the entire egg out of the bigger one. Yes, it actually works!
