LC’s Kitchen Truths

Things I know for sure:

Sesame oil goes in the fridge. You know this already.

Rolling your lemon/lime on the counter before you cut it produces twice as much juice when you squeeze it.

Cucumber slices pickled in red wine vinegar make a terrific snack.

If you’re unsure how to cook a vegetable, you can probably just toss it in olive oil, kosher salt, and cracked pepper then roast it in the oven.

Meal planning saves money and time in the grocery store. Check your cart at the end of a trip – does everything in it contribute to a meal? If not, put it back.

When you go to a restaurant, check the cleanliness of the bathroom. Bathrooms are relatively easy to keep clean. If the bathroom is dirty, what does that say about the kitchen?

Washing your knives in the dishwasher will make them dull immediately. Running the knives across a honing rod will not sharpen them – it only straightens the blade.

Almost everything can be accomplished with a sharp chef’s knife. Following that, it’s nice to have a vegetable peeler, blender, and food processor. Everything else is just (vegan) gravy.
