Here’s a great tip coming from a guy who specializes in quick and easy recipes. This is not a recipe per say, but a nice and simple hack that will take lots of pre-planning out of your cooking. It’s a butter softening trick.
Most recipes require room temperature butter, right? The safest way to soften it is to get it out of the fridge ahead of time which takes time or use a microwave that can easily make it too soft. This method is fast and easy and it will get you perfect consistency butter every single time. Awesome.
