Cooking tips or anything related pass em on, grocery shopping etc. I used to have a roommate that was a chef for a bit and the easiest tip they gave me was one I use today. It was related to the microwave, so nothing gourmet. If you're going to heat something for a minute just hit 111 or say 33 for 30 seconds.. it's just keyboard quicker, easier. Most of my microwave use is just reheating a cup of soup or coffee myself so it works for me-!!
