Simple Cooking Tips from your Fort Bend Apartments


What snack do you crave when you come back to your West Bellfort apartments after a long day at work? Some people want to rip open a bag of chips. Others want to start cooking a nice dinner. Still others, however, just want to be able to cook a snack or meal that doesn’t take much time, tastes good, and isn’t awful for you like potato chips are.


You could make the same tired grilled cheese sandwich that you’ve been making for yours. If you wanted to do that, you’d grab the sliced bread, the single-serving of processed cheese, and the butter that’s been sitting in the back of your fridge for way too long. You’d put this all out on the counter — it wouldn’t look appetizing, by the way — and you’d hopefully realize that a better meal exists. We’re not here to tell you to stop making grilled cheese sandwiches; we just want you to make them taste as good as possible.


Whether you’re into grilled cheese, peanut butter and jelly, or something as simple as boxed mac and cheese, these tips will help you make the most out of your simple meals. Check out the list of tips below, and please be sure to share this post with your friends and neighbors at your community of Fort Bend apartments.


Give your grilled cheese a little kick


Your grilled cheese doesn’t have to just be cheese and bread. Try adding one other ingredient and see how much that changes the flavor. We recommend bacon, tomatoes, sauteed onions and mushrooms, or roasted red peppers. You can also mix things up by adding two different types of cheese. If one of the cheeses has a kick, it’ll taste even better. Grab a chunk of pepper jack or monterrey jack next time you’re in the cheese aisle.


Oh, and remember that there’s only one thing more important than the ingredients inside the sandwich — the bread itself. You want the bread to be sturdy enough to support melted cheese, but you don’t want it to be so thick that the cheese doesn’t melt. Remember that stale bread is still good for grilled cheese because the heat of the pan will soften up the bread.


Add some crunch to your peanut butter and jelly sandwich


Yes, we know crunchy peanut butter exists already. However, if you like crunchy peanut butter you’ll probably enjoy even more crunch in your sandwich. If you don’t like crunchy peanut butter, you’ve been eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches all wrong. A little added crunch goes a long way, so consider adding things like Honey Nut Cheerios, pretzels or almonds to the mix. Next, sweeten up your sandwich by adding a drizzle of honey to it. Before you know it, you’ll be biting into the greatest peanut butter and jelly sandwich the world has ever seen.


Spice up your mac and cheese with beans and salsa


Turn your boxed mac and cheese into a savory southwestern dish by adding a can of black beans and half a cup of salsa. It’ll be much more flavorful than the boxed mac and cheese you’re used to, and you can even put all that into a hard shell taco if you’re really feeling adventurous. Give it a shot, folks!
