Pasta Hints…..

Use a big enough pot. During cooking, pasta can expand in volume up to three times its original size. So you’ll want to be sure you leave plenty of room in your pot. Next, use plenty of water. Fill your pot with at least 2 quarts for each ½ pound of pasta. This will help prevent your pasta from sticking together during cooking.

Keep those Strawberries…..

How do you make strawberries last longer in the refrigerator -All you need is a bit of vinegar, water, and a colander or salad spinner. To start off, pour about ½ cup of white vinegar and 2 ½ cups of water into a large bowl, and soak your berries in the mixture for a few minutes. The vinegar will get rid of mold spores and bacteria, which make your strawberries spoil quicker.

Save them bones…..

Bones are one of those ingredients that no one cooks with anymore but should. If you save your vegetable scraps and carcasses from turkey, rib roast or whatever meat you had for dinner and simmer them all together, you’ll make a broth that’s better than anything you can buy at the grocery store. Plus it’s cheaper than store bought!

Freeze…..

When making dough, freeze the butter and grate it into the dry ingredients. You’ll handle the cold dough less, resulting in more tender and flaky pie crusts, biscuits, or scones.

Relax…..

Never cook meat that is straight from the fridge and still cold. Give the meat a chance to come to room temperature and ‘relax’ before cooking.

Olive Oil or Canola Oil…..

Use olive or canola oil. Research has shown that the use of olive oil is linked to a lower risk for obesity and cardiovascular problems. If olive oil seems too expensive or you don’t like the taste, canola oil can be a good second choice. Canola oil does contain some healthy omega 3 oils and has been shown to reduce cholesterol levels. It is a low-flavor, healthier alternative to corn, soy or vegetable oil and animal fats like butter.

Keep the home fire burning…..

Cook at home. Eating at restaurants or getting take-out means you are not in control of what’s in your meal or how it’s prepared. If you cook at home you can ensure that your meal is healthy. Cooking at home can also save you money.
