Gingerbread added to Stews……………………………

* Thank you to Anne T. for passing this one along!

I have never heard or even thought about adding this to meat dishes! Add gingerbread cookies to meat dishes. – Believe it or not, adding crumbled gingerbread or gingersnap cookies to slow cooker meat dishes like beef stew, pot roast and sauerbraten is a secret ingredient that chefs use. The gingersnaps flavor the sauce and give the pan juices this amazing texture.

Strawberry Lovers………….

Strawberries may be available through the year, but they should ideally be bought and stored during winters. It is the perfect season to cherish its fresh flavor. So one of the most important factors to look out for buying these berries is to find them during winters. One of the best indicators of a stale strawberry is its smell. The freshest berries are the most fragrant. If you find its smell slightly mushy and unpleasant, do not buy them.

Constantly stir your pasta during the first minute of cooking……………..

When making Pasta – A large amount of the pasta’s starches starts to release during the first minute of boiling — meaning it’s the time when the pasta is most prone to sticking together. To prevent a sticky mess, constantly stir your pasta for the first minute, and after that you can ease up and stir it every 30 seconds or so.

One of my favorite Spices…………

Paprika
Paprika is a ground spice made from dried red fruits of the larger and sweeter varieties of the plant Capsicum annuum, called bell pepper or sweet pepper. The most common variety used for making paprika is tomato pepper, sometimes with the addition of more pungent varieties, called chili peppers, and cayenne pepper. – Wikipedia

This seasoning contains almost ¾ of the daily recommended value for vitamin A, along with other important antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
Paprika has shown promise in the treatment of diabetes, cancer, autoimmune conditions and cardiovascular disease.
Your eyes will benefit from regular consumption because of the presence of eye-protecting antioxidants and vitamin B6.

Hold off on the sauce…………..

Wait to baste when grilling – Basting with sauce adds tremendous flavor, but barbecue sauces burn easily. Try basting in the last few minutes and once foods have been removed from the grill.

Homemade Enchiladas……………

The most important tip for avoiding soggy enchiladas is to briefly fry your tortillas in hot oil before you fill and roll. This creates a little bit of a barrier so that the tortillas don’t soak up too much of the sauce and therefore start to break down. Enjoy!

Keep it cold…………….

When making Pies – Keep the ingredients cold. Butter should be kept refrigerated until using; solid vegetable shortening can be stored in the freezer without freezing hard as a rock. Also add ice cubes to a measuring cup and fill it with more water than you’ll need; add ice-cold water to the pastry mixture a tablespoon at a time.
