Make a Flavor-Packed Stock From Shrimp Shells

Whenever I have the chance to buy shrimp shell-on—or, better yet, head-on—I take it. Deveining and then cooking shrimp in their shells is the tastiest way to go, and there’s something very satisfactory about peeling them just before popping them into your mouth. But their journey shouldn’t end there; the shells still…Read more… Continue Reading […]

Use Papery Garlic Skins to Give Broth Big Flavor

Garlic skins have always been my least favorite part of peeling garlic. They either stick to my fingers, or float about the kitchen, carried by slight breezes before making their home on random appliances. But I resent them no more, my dears, because it turns out they make a kick-ass broth.Read more… Continue Reading at […]

Use Discarded Cherry Pits to Flavor Whipped Cream

Cherry pits may seem like one piece of kitchen refuse that has no second life, but as Stella Parks of Serious Eats points out, the little bit of fruit that clings to the stone has the ability to infuse flavor and color into all sorts of tasty treats.Read more… Continue Reading at http://lifehacker.com

Make a Refreshing Beverage out of Pineapple Peels and Rice

Out of all the trash I’ve eaten, pineapple peels might be my favorite. Not only can you use them to make an ice cold glass of tea or a decidedly tropical infused gin, but it has come to my attention that there is yet another fantastic beverage this noble scrap can be used for: chicha […]

In terms of savory no-cook sauces, it’s hard to beat pesto. You can spread it on bread, toss it with grilled vegetables, drizzle it on fish, or use it as a pasta sauce.

What to Do With Strawberries That Are a Bit Past Their Prime

Picking your own strawberries is a dangerous game. What starts out as good, clean fun plucking berries from their bush quickly escalates into a manic race against everyone else at the patch to pick the most and the best berries, leaving me with scratched limbs, stained lips, and way too many berries.Read more… Continue Reading […]

“Lettuce Jam” Is the Perfect Use for That Last Sad Bit of Greenery

I hate to sound melodramatic, but lettuce and I are enemies. It’s not that I don’t like eating salad—I do—it’s that I never eat salad fast enough before my lettuce gets “weird,” as in “not technically inedible but kind of limp and not-so-fresh looking.” This makes me feel like a failure, and I hate failure.

Make Pineapple-Infused Gin with the Leftover Peels Like a Damn Genius

Pineapple is a flawless fruit. Not only is it a tasty summertime snack all on its own, but it’s delicious when dipped in chocolate, and plays super well with alcoholic spirits of all kinds. I like to buy them whole and break ‘em down myself, but I’m always a little sad to toss out the […]
