While everybody is breaking all the “rules” here I shall add my 2 cents worth

  1. For curries, casseroles and stews you do not have to brown the meat, onions garlic etc first. Just chuck everything in there with a bit of oil or *****, put in your veges stock, flavourings, flavour enhancers and slow simmer. I can’t tell the difference and for busy person this takes a 1 hour process and turns it into a 10 minute process.
  2. There is no scientific study done on MSG and how deadly it is supposed to be. Look it up on Wikipedia. MSG is umami in a powder form and to get true authentic asian flavours it really helps.
  3. To thicken sauces and gravy you do not have to mix flour with water, just sprinkle it over the mix and stir. Some lumps will form but will break down as the mixture cooks out.
  4. To enhance flavour use white pepper. Quite common in Australia but hard to find in the US. Black pepper makes everything taste like black pepper, white pepper adds heat, enhances flavour and richness.
  5. Dried garlic or onion powder contains garlic or onions, that is all. Good products to have on hand. Nothing added
  6. When cooking pancakes and pikelets turn when the top is just starting to form bubbles and your cakes will rise and be really soft and light and fluffy. And we all like fluffy don’t we!

Thanks for all the great tips.

I shall add one more. Caress self raising flour with the utmost tenderness and gentleness or your dish will become tough and leathery. Beat plain flour mercilessly, otherwise the gluten will not develop.

To enhance any salad add a couple of teaspoons of red wine vinegar and offset it with a little stevia powder. Adds a nice sweet and sour kick without the calories. But don’t tell anyone!
