1."My snickerdoodle recipe. People love them. They are chunks of Pillsbury sugar cookie dough, rolled in cinnamon and sugar."
3."I add pickle juice to tuna or chicken salad. Gives it just the right amount of tartness."
4."I use a little almond extract in all my baked goods (especially French toast) and a little espresso powder in anything chocolate."
5."My boyfriend is always amazed at how my scrambled eggs taste so good. He’s convinced I have magical scrambling powers."
7."I follow the recipe on the back of the Tollhouse chocolate chip bag to the letter. Everyone thinks I make the best of the best chocolate chip cookies."
11."I add mashed anchovies or anchovies paste to my salad dressings, pasta sauces, and gravy."
14."If I cook anything that requires bread crumbs, I use chicken-flavored StoveTop stuffing instead."
15."For pasta salad, mix the pasta (while still hot) with Italian salad dressing and diced pepperoni."
17."Instead of pine nuts (which are crazy expensive), I now make pesto with cooked quinoa instead."
19."I add salt to hot chocolate. It somehow makes it more chocolate-y.
20"My wife came back from Norway in love with a MAGIC spice we searched for everywhere. It's MSG."
"MSG powder. A sprinkling can really elevate a dish. People can be so afraid of it because they've been fed misinformation about its health effects. So unless a guest specifically mentions an allergy, I'll keep adding MSG to my food without telling anyone :)" —u/chasing-the-sun
22"Stop using corn starch or flour to thicken stew. Grab a pouch of instant mashed potatoes (I use Idahoan buttery herb or roasted garlic flavor)."
"Add that, stir it in, and thank me later." —u/Talanic
