Mom Knows Best

Our favorite cooking tips passed on from the woman in our lives who doesn’t want us to burn our food.
SideChef
Created from scratch in the SideChef Kitchen, where recipe inspiration and ingredient experimentation are a way of life.

Whoever you celebrate on this day, chances are it is their words that roll through your head when contemplating life’s big decisions - should I buy these shoes (money doesn’t grow on trees!); will I ever meet the right person (when you don’t expect it!) and can I use a q-tip to clean my ears (Never stick anything bigger than your elbow in your ear!).

For this Mother’s Day, we compiled kitchen tips from our favorite Mothers. Read on and you may just learn something!

“Fry garlic on low heat, always.” - Greg, Content Partnerships Manager

“Start every soup with mirepoix (onions, celery, and carrots)” - Caroline, Managing Director

"If you can't make a flavorful pot of white rice from scratch, you're doing something wrong" - Sandie, Director of Content Management

“Always keep some good sausage in the freezer, you never know when you'll have extra stomachs to feed.” - Peidi, Product Manager

“Wash the meat to remove any blood or extraneous materials, then pat dry with paper towels. The meat should be completely dry before it is added to the pan. This seals the flavor and creates a wonderful texture.” - Matt, CTO

“Eat everything on your plate! No grain of rice should be left” - Kevin Yu, CEO

We are celebrating all mothers, whether it is the woman who underwent 12 hours of grueling labor, the person who attended every single soccer game, or the confidante who can be turned to time and time again.
