    Have a big dinner party coming up or planning a special dinner this weekend? If you love to cook but sometimes have a "mess up" here are some tips for correcting them as well as the most common cooking mistakes we make in the kitchen.

    Not Setting Up Your Ingredients Before You Cook

    If you have ever accidentally used confectioners' sugar instead of cornstarch or used salt instead of sugar, chances are you forgot to gather all your ingredients before you started cooking. The next time you start a recipe, make sure you have prepped properly and set up your mise en place. It will make you a more efficient cook and you can avoid using a cup of salt in your cake or scrambling around the kitchen trying to find the can opener.

    Not Giving Yourself Enough Time to Cook

    The quickest way to mess up a dish is to rush through the process. If you know that a recipe is going to take two hours from start to finish, do not start the dish an hour before dinner. Cook a meal that is going to take a shorter amount of time and tackle the more time-consuming dishes later.

    Overcrowding Your Pan When Searing

    The reason we brown meat is to add flavor, but if you overcrowd your pan, your meat will never brown. Because food releases moisture when it is cooking, foods that are left in a crowded pan will steam instead of searing. Cook your food in batches or use two pans so the process is faster.
