Hack your way into the holiday season with cooking and baking hacks for a stress-free noche buena. Food prep and entertaining are much easier with holiday hacks on what to freeze, what to make ahead, and the best way to prep your ingredients. 

 

1 A cooler is essential

During parties, keep all your drinks in a cooler. This way, you will have ample space in your refrigerator and freezer for pre-prepped salads and veggies, meats in marinade, and leftovers. 

 

2 Wrap it up! 

Speaking of drinks-did you know that there is a quick way to chill room-temperature wine quickly? Wrap a damp paper towl around the wine bottle and place it in the freezer for at least half an hour. 

 

3 Oven-to-table

Use casserole dishes that can go straight to the dinner or buffet table from the oven. This saves you time and effort in both preparation and clean-up. 

 

4  Make ahead and freeze

Components of your mains and desserts can be made days or weeks ahead: cookie dough, pie crusts, roast stuffings, broth, and stock all hold well in the freezer. 

 

 

5 Keep your recipes visible

Write down or print out your recipes on a piece of paper and tape it onto your cupboard or wall, right next to your work station. You'll have everything you need at a glance instead going through your phone or flipping through a cookbook in between food prep and cooking time.
