And save you lots of time. Time that you can spend eating!

1. Use two bowls to cut corn off the cob without getting kernels everywhere.

Wrap a small bowl in a paper towel (to keep it from slipping) and set upside-down inside a big bowl. A bundt pan works great for this too, if you have it.

3. Pre-soak pasta and it will cook in about 60 seconds.

Sounds weird, but it works! Soak the pasta in water in a sealed bag for a couple hours or overnight. Then you can cook it super super fast in boiling water or just add it straight to a hot sauce in a pan and let it finish cooking there.


17. No need to peel potatoes before boiling them; the skin will just slide off once they're cooked.

Transfer them to an ice bath when they're done cooking, then twist the peel off with your hands. This works best with Russet potatoes.
