But now? We’re finding ourselves scraping the bottom of our recipe reservoirs for new ideas. We may be growing tired of spending hours in front of the stove (quarantine cooking fatigue is real, mama)—and we’re busier than ever, so quick and easy meals are what we need right now.
TikTok is here to save the day. Sure, you’ve watched fun dance videos on the app, but did you know it’s also an amazing place to find super creative new recipe ideas and cooking hacks? We’ve gathered a few of our favorites. Give these a try, mama and then serve tasty dishes on our favorite plates.
