5 Tips for Making Cooking More Relaxing

Some days it feels like cooking can be a frantic rush to get dinner on the table. However, the kitchen is often the ideal place to find good humor and smile after a day of work and stress. Ready to create a healthy and delicious meal for your familyWe break down our tips for staying calm in the kitchen. 

Be a Mindful Cook 

Whether you’re chopping, slicing, or kneading, the art of mindful cooking presents the opportunity to anchor the mind and focus your attention on the senses and the culinary task at hand. By paying attention to what you are doing, you will likely discover increased calm and clarity in the kitchen. You never know, it might even make the dish taste better, too! 

Turn On Some Music 

Studies have shown that music can have a profound effect on emotions and the body. Sometimes all it takes to unwind after a long day is a song that you can sing along to. So, listen to your favorite playlist, crank up the radio, or let someone else pick the tunes while you make dinner. 

Cook It Once, Eat It Twice 

If your family enjoys a particular dish, make your life easier by making more of it. Double or triple recipes and stash the rest in the freezer for future meals. Just remember to label foods — our Make Ahead Cooking Collections come with freezer labels for 10 freezer-friendly recipes — in freezer bags or clear containers, so you’re not left with mystery meals on busy weeknights.  

Ask For a Hand 

Cooking is more enjoyable with friends! Enlisting the help of someone else can make things run more smoothly in the kitchen, and it can be the perfect opportunity to catch up with each otherKids can even be excellent sous chefs — that Wednesday night meal could be just the thing that inspires their love of cooking.  

Read the Whole Recipe First 

This can prevent any stressful surprises in the kitchen. You don’t want to get halfway through a recipe and realize that you were supposed to preheat the oven or that you’re missing an essential ingredient. Of course, with Wildtree Cooking Collection, you’ll have step-by-step recipes and grocery lists to ensure you prepare a tasty meal meal with ease.
