Choose Pan Over a Pot for Boiling Pasta

Most people prefer using a pot for boiling pasta. But, have you ever thought why to take too much water when you can simply boil it with less water as well as fewer efforts. Boiling pasta in a pan is the best option as you don’t have to use a lot of water in the vessel to pour them. Another great thing about this is you’ll have a lot of space in a pan to boil them effortlessly.

Choose to Micrwowave

If you want to go for the quickest hack, then you’ll be going to love this one. Why not boiling them into a microwave instead of going the old ways? All you need to do is to take just a cup of water and set the timer and you are done.

But it is recommended only when you are cooking for just one person as it takes a lot of stirring in between which is surely not possible when cooking for a large quantity.

Freeze Onions to not Cry each Time you Cook

The biggest task everyone fears doing in the kitchen are chopping onions. Who likes crying every time you are going to make something really tasty in a very happy mood? Well, we have the perfect solution for you in this case. To save you and your eyes multiple times in a day from crying is to store the onions in a freezer after chopping.

You can simply store the onions for a long time after chopping them in sandwich bags. You no longer need to cut onions every time you are going to make something. Storing them in a freezer will keep them fresh for a long time. Isn’t it a life-saving hack, or should we call it a tear saving hacks!!

Place a Damp Towel Under the Chopper Board

Most of the time we end up putting the chopping board into our feet due to the slippery surface it is placed on. The best solution to save you from getting into this situation is to use a damp towel under the board.

By placing a damp towel under the chopping board, you will have a smooth and hurdle free experience where you don’t have to distract from the fear of getting it slipped. This small hack can help you a lot while working in a kitchen by reducing efforts as well as timings.

Freeze Marinated Chicken Breasts for a Quick-Cooking

Cooking your favorite chicken takes a lot of effort and of course time. There are different kinds of marinades we put on the chicken before cooking. The best hack is to marinate your chicken with your favorite one and put it in a freezer inside a Ziploc bag.

Storing them marinated in a freezer will help you cook anytime without having to worry about the marinating process. Now all you need to do is to just put the chicken into the pan straight from the freezer after thawing in a fridge and you are done!!

Cover Your Food with a wet napkin while putting in a microwave

Have you ever noticed that your food becomes rough while cooking or reheating them in a microwave? We have a cool hack to make your food moist and fresh. Just take a wet towel and place it over the food you are going to put into the microwave.

By doing so, the food will not lose its moisture due to the contact of direct heat it gets inside the microwave. This small hack will help you make your food contain its real aroma and freshness.

Use a flat surface instead of an edged surface to crack eggs

Now you must be thinking is there also a technique to crack eggs on a particular surface? Well, the answer is definitely yes! Cracking eggs over edged surfaces also breaks the shell into small pieces which ultimately gets into the vessel along with the egg.

To save you omelets from those broken pieces of eggshell, use a flat surface for breaking your egg. It will help the egg break equally without hitting the surfaces.

Get a roti-maker

In this hectic life, no one has time to cook Rotis especially when you have a whole family to feed. For this, Rotimatic has revolutionized the kitchen experience.

Use a container with a lid and put the garlic cloves inside them and shake them tightly for each use. shaking them tightly will separate all the garlic cloves from the peels directly and you are done. Now, you can save your hands from that stinky smell of garlic that lasts over a week.

CIMG Launches 33rd Annual National Marketing Performance Awards




The Chartered Institute of Marketing, Ghana (CIMG), has launched the 33rd CIMG Annual National Marketing Performance Awards, which was held at the Coconut Grove Hotel in Accra. The event took a hybrid form with virtual and in-person attendees.


In his welcome address, the Registrar of the CIMG, Mr. Kwabena Agyekum said, “The success of these awards has gone beyond the event itself. Many businesses have now redeveloped their corporate strategies and significantly changed their business operating models, enabling them to be marketing-oriented by meeting the key requirements of market focus, integrated marketing, long term profitability, and customer and competitor orientation.”


In his opening remarks, the National Vice-President of CIMG and Chairman of the Awards Planning and Selection Committee, Mr. Theodore Osae, lauded the CIMG for its historic accomplishments in previous awards ceremonies.

“There is no denying that the scheme has incredibly evolved into what could be considered Ghana’s benchmark awards scheme. As we take delight in the successes achieved by our awards, I wish to boldly say that the CIMG takes pride in the several landmark accomplishments, which have greatly contributed towards improvements in organisational and professional performances, and especially, for practicing Marketers,” Mr. Osae said.


Being mindful of these achievements, the Institute has resolved to keep the stakes as high and as relevant as possible so that the standards, by which CIMG assesses individual and corporate performances, are not compromised.


The institute, for the past few years, has adopted the online system of completing the awards questionnaire by nominees as well as online assessment for the judges, who are chosen from various sectors of the corporate world. This set up has made it easy for CIMG to continue to drive a rigorous process whilst maintaining its stringent standards.


The Awards cover six major competitive areas, namely: Hall of Fame, Personality, Media and Marketing Communications organisations, Business organisations, Products, and Not-for-Profit organisations.


There is a non-competitive award category known as the CIMG President’s Special awards which are given to noticeable female and male achievers in any endeavour, or a business entity or product or service that has positively contributed to national progress.


Mr Osae indicated that “the judges and assessors for the year’s event will devote time and attention to ensure the success of the 33rd CIMG Awards, as it represents Ghana’s benchmark awards ceremony.”


The criteria for selecting the winners and benchmarking their performance will include:

  1. Marketing Metrics including awareness, numeric distribution (where appropriate) and others
  2. Marketing Innovation

III.       Technological Innovation

  1. Segmentation, Targeting and Positioning (STP)
  2. Social Impact
  3. Contribution to National Development

VII.      Public Image

VIII.     Success in the Market Place

  1. Market Share
  2. Customer Service Orientation
  3. Ecological and Ethical Issues

XII.      Competitor Orientation


Launching the awards ceremony, the National President of CIMG, Dr. Kasser Tee, urged organisations “to refrain from cutting marketing budgets in hard times, as effective deployment of marketing communications is necessary for stimulating demand for their products.”


Dr. Kasser Tee added that organisations must re-examine their marketing mix elements and ensure an optimal blend for organisational success. He explains that “in the same way that you cannot do without products, or pricing, or distribution, so must you not cut promotion or marketing communications budget. You must however spend in critical areas, using the most critical, influential and most cost-effective media vehicles. You must differentiate your corporate and product brands to enable them stand out in the midst of intense competition and low consumption.”


He further encouraged all corporate organisations “to pay attention to some of the very key pillars of marketing that guarantee effective performance, by way of growing market shares, revenues and profits in these difficult times.”


For 32 years, CIMG has consistently held the Annual National Marketing Performance Awards with the upcoming one being the 33rd edition
