At some point or the other, we become attracted to that part of our house from where the food supply comes. With age when we start exploring various places and their varied dishes, we do feel to make that special dish by ourselves. But here comes the big mystery when we enter our kitchen, how to handle so many things and even make our cooking perfect and different than others. So here are some kitchen secrets which will need to make your cooking perfect and be the smart home – chef:

Squeeze in the lemon juice, strain and refrigerate the extract in a glass bottle with some salt in it and enjoy our lemon throughout the summer.
