Fabulous Food Ideas 19 DIY Food Tutorials

If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen you'll love these Fabulous Food Ideas: 19 DIY Food Tutorials. Take a good look at your grocery list. You'd be surprised how many of those items you could make from home. Many common condiments that you may use each day have simple homemade recipes. When you use food tutorials to make homemade alternatives to store-bought food and ingredients, you'll save money and have the peace of mind of knowing exactly what you're eating. If you've ever gone cross-eyed trying to read an ingredients list on an item at the grocery store, give making your own ingredients a try. You'll be in control of what goes into your meals, and won't have to run in a panic to your cupboards when a food recall is announced. 

In addition to homemade alternatives to store-bought goods, this collection features tutorials for how to prepare fruit and vegetables with ease. Buying fresh fruits and veggies is great in theory, but the ease of buying the pre-cut food is so tempting. Resist that temptation by using these cooking hacks to master cutting, chopping, and dicing. Become the master of your kitchen with these simple food hacks and tutorials.

Homemade Syrups and Creamers

Who doesn't like coffee and tea? These homemade syrups and creamers are the perfect additive to either of these delicious drinks. Whether you want something sweet or something "adult" there is a syrup or creamer for you in this collection. Make a syrup to top your breakfast as well (or dinner, we don't judge). The creamers and syrups in this collection include basic recipes and flavored recipes, so you'll have an additive for every occasion. Once you're comfortable with the basics, you can even begin experimenting with customizing your own flavors.

Condiments Recipes

Condiments are a staple stock item in the fridge. With how much we consume them, why would we leave what goes into them up to major businesses and corporations? Let the person who will put your family first when deciding what ingredients to use in your most common condiments: you. Whether you’re a fan of smooth mayonnaise or a BBQ sauce with some kick, there is a recipe for you in this collection. These homemade recipes for BBQ sauce, ketchup, and mayo are all natural and don’t contain any unpronounceable ingredients. Making your own condiments is also a great way to cut high fructose corn syrup out of your diet, which is a common ingredient in many store-bought condiments. Take a few lines off your grocery list and try these delicious homemade condiments recipes. 

Cooking Hacks

If you like to cook, you likely have to cut food every once in a while; and, if you’re not a whiz with a knife, then having to cut food may be the bane of your existence. Suffer no longer! These DIY tutorials are ready to show you the best and easiest ways to cut vegetables or fruits! All of these how-to’s are for specific foods, but the techniques can easily be applied to other produce. Whether you’re wanting to conquer an avocado for some fresh guacamole or chop up a watermelon for a fruit salad (the fruit ninja technique does not work, our method is much easier), this collection has a tutorial that can make your cooking life easier.
