10. Put cheese on the OUTSIDE of your grilled cheese.

If you hadn't considered this before, you won't be able to eat a grilled cheese the same way after trying it. Gooey is great — really great — but adding a crusty, crunchy, chewy extra layer of cheese is just downright smart.

11. Use basil ice cubes for your Bloody Marys.

Uh, hello great idea! Instead of using regular, boring ice cubes that water down your Bloody Marys or veggie juices, use basil ice cubes (or any herb), so the more you sip the more flavorful your drink becomes.

12. Put sugar on your tomatoes.

Think salt brings out the flavor of tomatoes? Think again! Sprinkle sliced tomatoes with sugar or add sugar to tomato sauce to enhance the sweetness and the taste of the tomatoes.
