5 Cooking hacks to the fastest spaghetti dinner ever

Spaghetti is an easy go-to dinner on nights when you’re short on time, but at your busiest, even spaghetti can’t get on the table quick enough.

Use these hacks to make your quick dinners even quicker.

1. Add your salt later

It’s true that adding salt to your water enhances the taste of your pasta, but don’t add the salt until the water is already boiling. Adding it earlier will only increase the water’s boiling point, making the whole process take longer.

2. Use pot-sized pasta

Breaking up spaghetti makes it easier to eat, but it takes time (and usually makes a mess). Buy Mueller’s Pot-Sized Pasta to shave time off your cooking and your cleanup.

3. Precook your meat

The next time you get a free half hour or so, cook up a bunch of hamburger (or whatever meat you prefer in your sauce), and freeze it in baggies, separated by how much you’ll need per batch. Put it in the fridge to thaw the night before and you can skip the browning step when you’re cooking. Just take it out of the freezer and add it

Ice Cream Dorayaki Recipe

Dorayaki, one of the most popular traditional Japanese sweets, has many not-so-traditional variations.  Some come with whip cream, some with custard, and some with fruit.  My new favorite has ice cream (and don’t forget the Anko!)  Think of it like ice cream sandwiches here in America.  I have to tell you, it’s truly addictive.

My kids who were never big fans of traditional Japanese sweets have started requesting Dorayaki quite often these days.  It has a lot to do with Doraemon loving Dorayaki.  Doraemon is a very popular Japanese animated character who is often snacking on Dorayaki in the show. It’s usually around snack time when kids watch Doraemon on TV!  Naturally, kids having Dorayaki while watching Doraemon himself eat Dorayaki makes so much sense!  Now with ice cream inside, Dorayaki has never been better.  Ice cream Dorayaki is a huge hit during these hot summer afternoons!

I’ve made Dorayaki many times, especially since my kids started watching Doraemon on TV, but I’ve never tried “not-so-traditional” versions before.  I’ve been wanting to experiment with Dorayaki for quite some time, and adding ice cream has always topped my list of things to try — I am
