Forget the fillets for a minute and hear us out—cooking a whole fish, head, tail, body, and all, is WAY easier than you might think it is. Perfect for a special occasion, company that needs to be impressed, or just an excuse to treat yourself to a fresh catch of the day, a whole fish of your choosing is a perfect and deceitfully easy entree for the home cook to master.

If your kitchen smells like a campfire every time you bake, you need to clean your oven. "But wait!" you say. "My oven has a self-clean setting. Why would I need to spend time cleaning it by hand when I could be doing something that's not hard and boring?" Great question. Basically, the self-cleaning function on your oven is lying to you. You can't set your oven to self-clean, put your feet up in for an hour, and come back to a sparkly-clean oven. The self-cleaning function is essentially just a screaming-hot temperature function. It burns everything stuck in your oven to a char, and then you then have to scrape out all that charred gunk. It can be really messy, smelly, and, if you have a lot of crap stuck inside the oven it can set off smoke alarms. So, what should you do? Cleaning your oven with a simple baking-soda paste is way better. PS: This works on toaster ovens too.Of course, you can buy oven cleaners in powder, liquid, or wipe form. Those are magical and will erase everything (including a few brain cells if you inhale them too deeply). When I moved into an apartment that had previously been occupied by 20-something guys who never cleaned their kitchen, oven cleaner-strength wipes were the only thing that removed the three-plus years of grease spatter stains from the fridge. (Side note: Why is it standard practice in so many apartments to put the white fridge next to the stove, so it's begging to be covered in bacon grease and barbecue sauce splatter?) While these extra-strength cleaners work like a charm, I avoid using chemicals labeled “do not inhale” on surfaces that come in contact with food, so I go the more natural route when cleaning my oven.
Admire your clean oven and get it dirty again.
