Recipe Hack / Cooking Tips:
- How Long Should You Marinate Shrimp: If there is any type of acid like vinegar, lemon, or lime no more than 15 minutes. The acid will cook the shrimp after 15 minutes and make the texture mushy instead of plump and juicy.
- Where to Get the Best Pizza Dough: Go to your favorite pizza restaurant to get raw dough. Every pizza place will happily sell it to you. This way you know you will love the crust and it makes your life easy!
- Gratitude While Stirring: Use the kitchen as a place for self care. As you stir or chop say what you are grateful for. I do this all the time so that cooking can be a time to recharge.
