Do you love to cook but hate how long it takes you?  Well, we’re here to help with that!  Food should be enjoyed, not tolerated, and cooking should be a joy, not a pain.  So, if you’re struggling a bit, let me help you.  Here are 15 tips to help you cook faster (so you can spend more time eating).

1. Use a sharp knife

That’s right– a sharp knife will enable you to cut through foods more quickly and safely.  Also, hold your knife like this, not with the thumb on the top of the blade.

2. Cut on a flat surface

If your food is rounded (like an onion, apple etc) slice off some of the side or cut it in half to create a flat surface for chopping. It will be much easier and faster for you to chop when everything is stable.  Also, bend your fingers back, like in the photo below, in order to keep them safe.
