When it comes to tips in the kitchen, there can never be enough. The ones we have for you today might be little in number, but they are all oh-so-very interesting!

Looking for an eggcellent idea for breakfast? The HOuseholdHacker refers to his fascination with Gordon Ramsay, a celebrity chef whose restaurants have been granted 16 MIchelin starts to date, by presenting with one of the simplest tips when it comes to cooking scrambled eggs. If you wish to keep indulging on your favorite breakfast food but wanna preserve your waist line, skip the milk or cream and start with a knob of butter in your frying pan. Pour your lightly scrambled eggs in the pan and stir with your spatula as they cook, lifting the pan off the heat every 10 seconds. Anyone for some velvety goodness?

Making caramel at home has always been the idea of a messy business, but with this tips it is as simple as one-two-three. All you need is a can of sweetened condensed milk! Place your can on its side into a pan and cover it with water. Simmer for 2.5-3 hours. The cans should be completely covered with water at all times, so top it off as needed. Allow the cans to cool completely before opening them to reveal their delicious goodness.

This next one is a two-in-one special on the matter of hard boiled eggs, or in this case, hard baked! If you need to cook a large batch and can’t fit them all in your dish, just place them on the rack in your oven. Turn the oven on 325 and cook for 30 minutes. After this, place them in ice water to prevent further cooking and ease the next step - peeling!

Place each egg one by one in a dish with a bit of water in it and cover it with something sturdy. Give it a few shakes. The egg will literally slide off. Just don’t get too passionate with the shaking.

Don’t have a pastry brush and you really need one? Now this is really simple - substitute it with a lettuce or kale leaf. They will work just as good and no one will be the wiser.

Does your recipe call for super ripe bananas, but all you’ve got are the bright yellow ones? Place your bananas on a baking sheet lined with foil against any leakage and put them in a preheated oven at 300 degrees for 20-30 minutes, or until they turn black. Then just slice them open and carefully pour out their insides. Perfect for banana bread!
