School is back in session for some, and we know quick dinners are key to staying on your family’s tight schedule.
A local meal-planning expert shares her favorite gadgets that save time while adding flavor.
A hand chopper can help take the tears out of cutting onions, according to Laurin Mills, of The Dinner Daily. Mills suggests getting one that is easy to clean.
A press for citrus fruits and one for garlic are also must-haves for adding taste without adding calories.
Finally, invest in a metal cooking basket. It goes right into a pot, to easily and safely strain pasta.
“You go right from here to your bowl. There’s no need to dump that hot boiling water and carry it across your kitchen,” Mills said.
