Streamlining the Cooking Process

Streamlining the Cooking Process

I do about 80-85% of the things on this list, and they are all tips that I’ve shared with friends who have reasonable gripes about cooking.

To be honest, I had seen a variety of these things when I first started cooking and dismissed them as not really necessary.  But, although I forgot about all of them as time went on, I somehow ended up developing these habits on my own (for example, I had no idea what a mise en place was but I do it for everything).  You’ll see these tips come up again as I share recipes, but I wanted to post this list so it’s all in one place!



  1. Thanks for posting this. Discussing the global process of cooking – and not just fulfilling a recipe itself – deserves much more attention in general. And mise en place = awesome. Such a common sense thing that I never really paid attention to. Definitely a time saver!
