Making a fruit cobbler………………..

Fresh fruit is great, but frozen fruit works too. Just be sure to thaw the fruit completely first. Also be sure to cut all fruit into bite-sized pieces for easier scooping and eating. Enjoy that cobbler!

Shut the stove off before eggs are done……….

Whether you scramble, fry, or poach, always turn off the stove a few minutes before the eggs look done—even when they seem a bit runny. The remainder of the heat will cook them to fluffy perfection. Nothing like a good Egg to start the day!

Cooking pasta……………….

Cook pasta al dente when using in a pasta salad. This will allow it to absorb some of the dressing and not become mushy.

al dente – If you cook pasta or a vegetable until it is al dente, you cook it just long enough so that it is neither hard nor soft but is firm and slightly chewy.

Here’s a couple of Hints on freezing those leftovers……………

* Zip-top freezer bags can be used for just about anything, even liquids such as stew or soup. Just lay the filled bags out on a tray to make sure they freeze flat. Once they’re frozen solid, you can line them up in the freezer like books on a shelf.

* Pyrex bowls with plastic lids are great for freezing because they won’t develop stains or scratches after repeated uses. Better still, you can reheat the contents right in the container – they go from freezer to fridge to oven, and are also microwave-safe.

 

*Thank you to Janet H. for passing these hints along!
