Making Angel Food Cake………………..

Eggs 101 – Separate the eggs when cold, otherwise the yolk breaks easily. Let the egg whites get to room temperature before beating. They will be more relaxed and fluff up easily. (about 30 minutes out of the fridge).

Hints to keeping that Salad fresh from the Real Simple website………………………

Choose heartier greens

Butter lettuces, like Bibb and Boston, may wilt quickly, but heartier greens like arugula, watercress, baby spinach, and baby kale tend to stay fresh longer. They’re also super versatile: use them as the base for salads and grain bowls, and when they start to turn, cook them down for soups, frittatas, and more. Case in point? More bang for your buck.

Buy the freshest possible bag

You’ll need to do a little digging, but head for the back of the rack to find the freshest lettuces. The bags in front likely have the nearest expiration date as stocks are trained to put new bags in the back. If, however, you’re planning to use these greens soon, get the first bags. They’ll be fine for a few days, especially if you heed these storage tips.

Buying and storing Apricots…………………………

While it’s easy to tell if an apricot is ripe, it can be tough to tell whether it’s good. Look for fruits that have a deep orange-gold color rather than those that are pale orange or yellow. They should be plump and firm, with just a little softness to them.

Ripen apricots in a paper bag at room temperature for 2 to 3 days. Unripe apricots can be stored at room temperature up to 5 days. Refrigerate ripe apricots in a sealed container up to one week. (Be sure that they are ripened first, as they will not ripen in the refrigerator.)

Start the day with Oatmeal…………………….

Whether it’s steel-cut or rolled, quick-cooking or instant, oatmeal is good for you, experts say—with a few caveats. Oatmeal is rich in fiber, eases the insulin response, and benefits gut health. Benefits also include lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels, protection against skin irritation and reduced constipation. In addition, they are very filling and have many properties that should make them a weight loss friendly food. At the end of the day, oats are among the healthiest foods you can eat. As long as it’s sugar-free, eating oatmeal for breakfast is a good choice.

Always rinse your rice before cooking it………………………….

This is less important for long grain varieties, but important none the less. It removes the excess starch stuck to the outside of the rice that makes it gluey and prevents it from sticking together.

Blueberries……………….

The fiber, potassium, folate, vitamin C, vitamin B6, and phytonutrient content in blueberries supports heart health. The absence of cholesterol from blueberries is also beneficial to the heart. Fiber content helps to reduce the total amount of cholesterol in the blood and decrease the risk of heart disease.

To peel mango…………………………….

To cut a mango the old-fashioned way you first have to skin it. You can either do that with a knife like they used to do in the old days of the military or you can use a potato peeler. Once you have your mango peeled, place the wider end of your mango on the cutting board.

Stopping the dreaded Freezer Burns……………………………..

The easiest way to avoid freezer burn is by ensuring your food is wrapped as tightly as possible and has the most air removed as possible from the packaging. Adjust your containers as necessary. If you only have a cup of soup, don’t try to fit it in a quart plastic container. Instead, pour it into a zip-top bag and flatten.
