Cook Grilled Cheese Sandwiches With Mayonnaise

While you may have heard that the perfect grilled cheese sandwich requires butter on the outer sides of the sandwich, there’s something else you should try. One of the best hacks for a crispier sandwich is adding mayonnaise. Remember to put the mayonnaise on both sides, with the outer one frying directly on the pan. Your life will never be the same again!

Add Soy Sauce to Popcorn Butter

The more butter in popcorn, the better the taste. And by adding some soy sauce to the creamy butter, you will be bringing out the cheesy, savory, and nutty flavors of the popcorn. There’s no going back after discovering this hack!

Add Coffee To Brownie Batter

If you particularly love chocolate, try adding some coffee to your brownie batter. It can help to enhance the chocolaty flavor. Contrary to what you may think, if you add a moderate amount of coffee, you won’t get a mocha flavor but an intense, deep chocolaty explosion in your mouth.
