The shortcuts in Amazing Food Hacks span from hilariously low-brow to ingeniously gourmet, and put a twist on recipes that don’t require buying expensive, exotic ingredients or employing complicated kitchen techniques. MacGyver your way to great flavor with ideas like:

  • Breakfast Hacks: Add Sprite and sour cream to biscuit mix for fluffier results; make breakfast Popsicles (yogurt + fruit + granola) for a healthy grab-and-go fix; cook canned biscuits on a waffle maker for “instant” waffles
  • Snack Hacks: Jiffy Muffin Mix + hot dogs = easiest corn dogs ever; bake wonton wrappers with pizza flavorings for a crispy snack; mix blue cheese into deviled eggs to amp up the deliciousness
  • Meal Hacks: Add peanut butter to a bowl of ramen for a richer broth; spread alfredo sauce on a grilled cheese for a fancier sandwich; cook meatballs in cranberry sauce for a tangy and delectable dish

Whether you’re a college kid with dorm-approved kitchenware, a busy young professional in a big city with little time and space to cook, a parent looking for fun snack ideas for the kids, or someone who just likes to try new things, Amazing Food Hacks is a must-have for kitchen creativity.
