No one entertains (or throws together a casual weeknight dinner) quite like Martha Stewart. What’s great about Martha is she not only provides mouth-watering and seasonally inspired recipes, but through her cookbooks and website, she also shares incredibly practical pieces of advice to improve her readers’ cooking skills.

5 Pieces Of Cooking Wisdom From Jamie Oliver That Will Never Steer You Wrong

  5 Pieces Of Cooking Wisdom From Jamie Oliver That Will Never Steer You Wrong The pantry ingredients every kitchen must have, and other secrets from the celeb chef.

Home cooks and professional chefs alike often ask Martha for a little help in the kitchen. Here, she answers some frequently asked cooking queries. Cooking and Baking Tips . Choose a slide. 1 of 8 .

From tried-and-true recipes and DIY crafts to home decor tips and holiday party planning, let Martha Stewart inspire you every day.

Here are some of her best tips, including the ultimate way to make baked potatoes.

1. Cook in batches

Martha’s a big fan of batch cooking, especially in your slow cooker. But cooking in bulk isn’t just for soups and stews. When you actually take your waffle iron out of the cupboard, don’t just whip up enough for brunch. Make more than you need and freeze them for the next time a waffle craving hits. You’re basically making DIY Eggos.

2. Bread is the key to cleaning your coffee grinder

Most grinders can be used for both coffee and spices. But you probably don’t want to use it on your fresh beans after you’ve ground up a bunch of fragrant spices. To get rid of spice-related odours and oils, Martha says to run fresh white bread through your grinder. It’ll be coffee-ready in a jiff.

A Creamy, Spicy Pasta Dish to Warm Your Soul

  A Creamy, Spicy Pasta Dish to Warm Your Soul A Creamy, Spicy Pasta Dish to Warm Your SoulThe story of how this recipe came about almost reads like a rom-com plot (emphasis on almost). One day, my then-boyfriend was over for dinner, and I combined all the leftover ingredients in the fridge to make this pasta. I always have poached chicken on hand, since I make my chicken stock that way, and I happened to have a good stock of fresh herbs. Cue some Aleppo pepper (my favorite way to add heat to any recipe) and a touch of cream and bam—best date-night meal I’d ever made.

It is best to thaw turkey in the refrigerator, where it' s too cold for harmful bacteria to grow. Stuffing cooked inside a turkey is more flavorful and moist, but you run the risk of exposure to bacteria. If you do stuff the bird, make sure to do it right before the turkey goes in the oven, not ahead of time .

3. Bang baked potatoes on the counter

Martha’s favourite way to make baked potatoes looks ordinary at first glance  — she coats her potatoes in oil and salt and sticks them in the oven. But after she takes them out, she bangs each potato, once, on the kitchen counter. Apparently,  this is the key to a fluffy spud.

4. Your slow cooker is a space saver

In her latest cookbook, Slow Cooker, Martha says your slow cooker is particularly helpful if you’re making a big meal. If you’re cooking a main in your oven, use your slow cooker for a side. You can also think of it as a low burner if you run out of space on your stove. Or, use it to keep food warm.

5. Flash freeze your bacon before chopping

Plenty of recipes called for diced (or sliced) bacon, but cutting bacon can be tricky because it’s so fatty. To keep your knife from slipping, stick your bacon in the freezer (until it’s just chilled and not completely frozen) before you cut it.

I Tried the Viral Red Wine Spaghetti Recipe, and Here's What Happened

  I Tried the Viral Red Wine Spaghetti Recipe, and Here's What Happened I Tried the Viral Red Wine Spaghetti Recipe, and Here's What HappenedSince both cooking spaghetti in tomato sauce and Martha Stewart's one-pot pasta hack turned out to be total failures, I had to see if the same was true for Food and Wine's spaghetti cooked in red wine. Spoiler alert: it was the opposite. Thousands of people, like me, were intrigued by the publication's recipe video that went viral on Facebook, so I had high hopes that the pasta would taste as delicious as it looked. The verdict is in, and all I can say is this fast and easy dish will no doubt be added to my regular dinner rotation.

Martha Stewart ' s five best meals of all time span from Shanghai to New York City. “I couldn’t believe my eyes at the dessert cart at Paul Bocuse, but the best part of the meal was the Poulet de bresse I met his whole family during that trip—they were all cooking in the kitchen, the whole gang.

Martha shared in her Reddit AMA that her top three entertaining tips are as follows: "1. Pay attention to your guests. 2. Interact with them. Sometimes, what a host truly needs is a handful of excellent time -saving tips to throw a terrific party in no time at all.

6. Keep a big cutting board handy

While Martha has a white commercial-size cutting board on her kitchen counter, choose one that fits in your space (the bigger, the better). Keep it out so you always have somewhere to prep a quick meal or snack on the fly. And place it on a non-slip mat so it actually stays put when you are cutting on it. A mat or damp paper towel under your cutting board would also do the trick.

7. Mise en place isn’t just for chefs

Chefs love to talk about the importance of mise en place, or having everything prepared and in its proper place before you start cooking. Instead of chopping veggies and measuring out spices as you go, Martha recommends you portion and lay out your ingredients, just like the professionals. Consider investing in a set of small glass bowls. This will make you a more organized and efficient cook — especially when you’re feeding a crowd. You can even prep your ingredients on Sunday afternoons to create DIY meal kits for busy weeknights.

8.  Start using a trash bowl

When you’re busy cooking, keep a designated trash bowl (a large stainless steel or plastic mixing bowl will do) nearby. Instead of tossing wrappers, peels and food scraps in the bin as you go, just throw it all in your garbage dish and chuck everything out once you’re done your prep work. You can use one bowl for organics and another for just for waste.

The best method for cooking asparagus is 2,000 years old

  The best method for cooking asparagus is 2,000 years old I used to think I didn’t like asparagus, but it turned out to be—as these aversions often are—a textural problem. Their stalks would remain fibrous and tough even as half the stalk and the tips turned to mush. My mind was changed a few years ago when some restaurant dish I ordered came with a salad of pleasantly al dente asparagus, the tips tender but not mushy. At home, I tried blanching the stalks, grilling them, baking them, but nothing recreated that texture—until I learned of a combination boiling-steaming method involving a mason jar and very little kitchen skill.
