These are a handful of cooking prep tips that I’ve learned over the last year or so that really improved my cooking and reduced my frustrations. I’ll post more tip videos as I find the ones that I think are the most useful. If you have any that you’d like to share, please post them in the comments!
How to Make Vegetable Stock / Broth

I originally learned how to make the stock in the The Hot Knives Vegetarian Cookbook: Salad Daze.
