The goal is a clean kitchen at night… every night. In this episode I’m sharing time and energy saving habits that enable me to end the day with a clean kitchen – even on days when I have little to no energy to spare!
What Will You Learn?
Clean as You Go
I’m sharing my lazy mis en place method of cooking. This method makes it easy to clean as I go from putting ingredients away as I use them to my quick way of cleaning and soaking cookware as I use it. These are tips for anyone interested in upping their game when it comes to cleaning as you go in the kitchen.

Making it Nice
My recommendations for how to set the mood in your kitchen. Creating a beautiful, inviting space is a great way to motivate yourself to keep it nice. Dig deep at the end of the day to reset your kitchen so you can enjoy it in all its glory! (Even if it only lasts until breakfast).
