Freeze fresh herbs……….

If you’re still not able to use up all your fresh herbs before they go bad, here’s a hint on what to do. Chop them up and throw them in the freezer. Try freezing them in an ice cube tray. Once frozen, remove the cubes and place them in a freezer-safe bag. This way you can pull out just what you need the next time you cook.

Is that chicken done grilling?……………

The perfect internal temperature is 165 degrees for dark meat, 160 degrees for white. If you don’t have an instant-read thermometer, you can always do a little cut into the middle to check that it’s just about opaque in the center.

Strawberry storage hint……….

Remove the berries from their original container, and store them whole and unwashed in a partially-closed container lined with paper towels to absorb any excess moisture, preferably in a single layer so they don’t get crushed. They should last up to five to seven days.

Oh those Sweet Taters

Look for small to medium sweet potatoes, which are sweet and creamy. (The larger ones tend to be starchier.) The skin should be firm, smooth, and even-toned. The deeper the color of the potato, in general, the richer it is in the antioxidant beta-carotene. The best way to store raw cut sweet potatoes is in a cool, dark, dry place. You should refrain from refrigerating them as a temperature that is too cold and even too hot can ruin them. In a cool, dry storage space, raw cut sweet potatoes can last up to two months.

Shut the stove off……..

To always have great eggs, don’t overcook them. 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.

Shopping healthier………….

Next time you grocery shop, shop healthier. Choose the reduced or low-fat version of a food if possible – for example milk, cheese, yoghurt, salad dressings and gravies. Choose lean meat cuts and skinless chicken breasts. Also limit fast foods, chips, crisps, processed meats, pastries and pies, which all contain large amounts of fat. Eat Healthy and Live Healthy!

Cutting down salt………

Don’t automatically add salt to your food, taste it first. You can also add a splash of olive oil, vinegar or lemon juice close to the end of cooking time or to cooked vegetables – it can enhance flavors in the same way as salt.

Clean Up Hint……………

Cleaning up after a delicious scrambled egg breakfast? Use cold water. It cleans dried egg off pans and utensils better than hot water, which causes the protein to bind to surfaces and harden.

Reheating rolls…………….

The quickest way to reheat biscuits or rolls is to sprinkle them lightly with water and wrap them in foil. It should take about 5 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven.

For a super tender Pork Loin……………….

When roasting a pork loin, cook it with the fat side down for the first 20 minutes, so that the fat begins to liquefy. Then turn the roast over for the balance of the cooking time, and the fat will baste the meat.
