Preparation Is Key
Don't start making any recipe without reading all the steps first and thinking through how to store it. If you are making a dish that needs to cook, make sure to decide whether you will cook it halfway now or whether you will just prep it and then cook it later. Don't get to the end of the recipe without having thought through whether it needs to be reheated. Make a plan before you even buy the ingredients and you will already be a step ahead.
