    The Kitchen Round Table

    Since a lot of us will be cooking at home for the foreseeable future, I thought it might be a fun idea to make a thread where we could all come together to discuss kitchen hacks and good food. So pull up a chair, gather round, and share your favorite cooking tips and recipes here!

    To get things started: when you're cooking pasta and sauce, stop boiling your pasta just before it turns al dente, and finish it up in the pan with the sauce instead! The pasta will absorb a bit of the sauce as it finishes cooking and will become much more flavorful. For best results, remove pasta from the pot with a pair of tongs and add a bit of pasta water to the sauce -- this will add a nice bit of flavor and help keeps things from sticking!

    Re: The Kitchen Round Table

    Recipe for the easiest cookies in the world:

    1 box of cake mix
    1/3 cup of veggie oil
    2 eggs

    Preheat the oven to 350. Mix your ingredients in a bowl, then spoon out onto a cookie sheet in cookie size portions. Bake for 8-10 minutes (depending on the oven). That's it!

    The wonderful thing about these is that you can get so creative - yellow cake mix with chocolate chips are most like your regular choco chip cookies. But I've also done "snickerdoodles" with yellow cake mix rolled in a cinnamon/sugar mix, chocolate cake mix with white chocolate chips, white cake mix with sprinkles (birthday cake cookies!), strawberry cake mix with white chocolate chips... the possibilities are endless, which also makes them really fun to make with kids.

    They also stay soft and chewy for a long time as long as you don't over-bake them.

    Great idea!!!

    And great tip!!! I cringe when I see the sauce just ladled over the top of the pasta!!

    The Kitchen Round Table

    Easily the best pulled pork Iíve ever had/made and I make it frequently. Follow this to a T except put it on the smoker at 225į with smoking wood of your choice. Itís great in the oven though too and your entire house will smell incredible.

    If you don't have an Instant Pot, get one.

    Easy Peel Hard-Cooked Eggs

    Use the 5-5-5 method: Up to 1 cup of water, rack or trivet that fits in the instant pot, stack the eggs on top of the trivet (I can do 18 eggs at once).
    The water level should not be high enough to touch the eggs.

    Cook at five minutes high pressure, five minutes natural release before a quick release of any remaining pressure, then five minutes in an ice bath.

    It makes having eggs around for deviled eggs, egg salad, chef salad, creamed eggs, curried eggs, or even just a fast breakfast very easy.
