I started mentally preparing to make a new recipe that my dear friend, Katie, sent to me. I was agonizing over cutting the onions. I use fresh veggies for nearly ever meal. And onions kill me every time. So, needless to say, that's the veggie I save for last!
As I was procrastinating to get started, I decided to google how to cut onions without crying. I've googled this before and have gotten 10+ different answers; wear sunglasses, wear goggles, cut it under water, freeze them, etc. None of them actually worked for me.
This time I found a different idea. And I loved this guy's video - short and sweet. Check this out.

I tried cutting an onion using his method. It resulted in nearly NO tears. I did get a little irritation, because I'm a moron and left the bulb right next to me. DUH.
But, nothing near what happened when I cut the second onion. I decided to try cutting it like I always do, with no precautions. I was in tears in seconds. Horrible tears. I had to walk away probably five or six times to get the nastiness out of my eyes. I have mascara streaks on my sweatshirt to prove it.
Try it next time you cut an onion! It really works.
I searched a little more through this guy's videos and found a few more great ideas.

Oh yeah, and if you haven't noticed yet, I started a recipe blog. Originally it was because I wanted to have all my favorite recipes online when I was out of town and wanted to cook. But, Laura has now started adding some as well. If you have any wonderful recipes you'd like to share, we'll give you credit, if you don't mind it being on the page.
