I'm a professional chef and my $3.59 Lidl staple enhances the flavors of my cakes, French toasts and even smoothies

A PROFESSIONAL chef is revealing which $3.59 Lidl staple enhances her kitchen concoctions.

Tori Hazelett shared some of her other favorite items to purchase at Lidl and why.

The professional chef, writing for Insider, called out one particular item from the Lidl baking aisle that enhances many more dishes than you may think.

Pure vanilla extract costs less than $4 and can be added to cakes, cookies, and even smoothies, Hazelett says.

She says her husband loves to add some of the extract when he makes french toast.

The chef also noted that vanilla extract can be used when making homemade whipped cream.

Adding the vanilla to a smoothie can also improve the taste while not adding any sugar.

Hazelett also said she buys a handful of items at the store to keep in her fridge and pantry at all times.

She specifically noted the low prices of items like heavy cream and yeast – both baking staples.

In addition, Lidl offers a variety of well-priced items that can help any family save on their grocery bill.
