It dawned on me recently that sometimes I don’t like to try new things in the kitchen because it inevitably takes more time.
It could be a new recipe or mix which I have to look at and reread multiple times to get it right. The recipes I know and love I can throw together much more quickly.
It could be a new way to do something such as cutting a fresh pineapple. It’s amazing how much difference muscle memory makes. When you have cut certain things a particular way numerous times, it becomes habit and can be done quickly.
It could be learning to use a new appliance or tool. They can be fun, but they can also take time to learn and figure out.
Tried and true recipes, techniques, and gadgets are all good things, but don’t overlook something new just because it will take a little more time. That new thing might end up being added to your tried and true list in the future.
Have you tried something new in the kitchen recently?
