Over the years I have developed a terrible habit of constantly tasting and sampling the things I'm working on in the kitchen. It doesn't matter what I'm making: main course meat, veggie sides, soups, baked goods, sauces, healthy food or junky food - anything and everything! I know an occasional taste is important to test seasoning, but I tend to go WAAAY beyond that - to the point that occasionally I have snacked so much that I am sick of the dish by the time I serve it. I can avoid snacking when I'm not cooking and doing other things in the kitchen - but when I'm cooking I'm hopeless.
So I'd appreciate hearing any tips from others who have this tendency but have managed to conquer it. Need some ideas so I don't have to banish myself from the kitchen altogether! (Also would love to teach better kitchen habits to my kids than my mom apparently taught me.)
