1. Adding fresh herbs such as parsley, coriander or mint at the end of a dish topped with a squeeze of citrus (lemon or lime) is one of the simplest ways to bring additional fresh flavors to your meal to take it up another level.
2. Having a big pan that can both be used on the stove and go in the oven is so incredibly handy for multiple uses. Toast spices, sear vegetables, then throw it all in the oven for a quick, easy, delicious meal.
3. Taste as you go! Season as you go! Use your tastebuds, this is the fun creative part of cooking!
