There are also little things that you and your family can be mindful of throughout the day that will save you a lot of time in the kitchen. Have your family members commit to only using one glass per day. You can even add name tags to the cups to make sure they are not getting mixed up throughout the day. Additionally, rinsing and reusing dishes when it is sanitary to do so while cooking will save on dishes afterwards. For example, if you are going to be using a knife to cut up multiple ingredients, first start by cutting up your produce and saving your raw meat for last. Then all it takes is a quick rinse of your knife and cutting board if necessary and you are ready to cut your raw meat. And finally, if you find yourself using too many dishes, it may be time to do a cupboard cleanout to get rid of some! The less you have, the less you will use!

Use these helpful hints and whip up these quick and easy-cleanup recipes this summer to spend less time in the kitchen and more time doing the things you love with those you love. You’ll be glad you did!
