You're Eating These Foods the Wrong Way

We all know pizza tastes better the next morning, but instead of simply reheating those leftovers in the microwave, place the slices on a skillet or waffle iron for that fresh pizza taste.

If you hate getting ketchup everywhere except your fries when you open the packet, you should cut the top off instead of tearing the corner. Bonus: You'll have a mini dipping bowl for your french fries.

Secret Sauce

Ketchup on a burger is boring. But when you combine it with other ingredients for a carefully balanced, creamy blend condiment with just enough acid, spice, smokiness, and sweetness, it becomes not boring but secret.

Cupcakes are delicious, but the frosting to cake ratio can be a bit lopsided when taking those first bites. To get your frosting more evenly dispersed, cut the top of the cupcake and flip it over with the frosting facing down to create a little cupcake sandwich.
