Good food doesn't have to be complicated; just a few simple tricks can save you time, money, and hassle. And you can find them on r/FoodHacks!

From getting the most out of your leftovers to making the perfect wrap, this subreddit has plenty of useful and simple tips to help you get better results in the kitchen.

If, however, you don't take my word for it, consider this: the subreddit already has over 2.1 million members. That number wouldn't be so big if it was pure nonsense now, would it?

My mom just taught me. make your hard taco like normal. Then sprinkle some cheese on a soft taco. wrap soft taco around hard taco. Cheese melts, mess contained, utterly delicious.

You use the second taco to catch the mess from the first taco. Then you eat the second taco. No mess. More tacos.

You can use the bottom of a springform pan, also. Lemon will not only kill the natural fish's flavor, but will also overcook it. If you like your fish lemon-ey, just add some zeste on top instead (grated lemon skin)
