Sprinkle a little sugar on top…..

Lightly sprinkling lean proteins (and even vegetables) with sugar helps them brown better and faster, enhancing their flavor without the risk of overcooking.

Make a list and check it twice…..

Create a grocery list, this will save you time and money, so you don’t get distracted by items in the store you don’t need. A grocery list should be based on the ingredients of the meals that you wish to make. Meaning, we need to think about what meals we want to have for the week. Stick to your list!

Homemade…..

Cooking at home saves money. Buying ingredients is usually cheaper than restaurant meals or takeout. It may save time. It can actually be quicker to make a meal at home than order takeout – especially if you meal prep, cook in bulk, or freeze your extras for later. It also ensures healthier ingredients. Take out and preprepared foods are typically higher in salt, fat, and sugar. When we make our own meals at home, we know exactly what we’re eating. Homemade is better!

Are Jalapeños good for your health, yes…..

Jalapeños are rich in vitamins A and C and potassium. They also have carotene — an antioxidant that may help fight damage to your cells – as well as folate, vitamin K, and B vitamins. Many of their health benefits come from a compound called capsaicin. Capsaicin, a compound that likely accounts for many of the health benefits of Jalapeños, including weight loss, pain relief, improved heart health and lower ulcer risk.

BBQ Sauce…..

Want to make the BBQ Sauce even better? Onion powder, cumin, garlic, peppers: these are all go-to flavors for amping up the flavor profile of a too-bland, too-generic barbecue sauce. Two popular ingredients to add are Worcestershire sauce and plain yellow mustard. Kick it up!

Toast your spices….

A quick trip in a dry skillet over medium heat wakes dry spices up and releases their oils, which means your paprika will taste a lot more paprika-y. Use whole spices, watch the pan like a hawk, and stir constantly until the spices are fragrant, then transfer to a plate to cool before using. Spice it up!

How do you store shrimp and lobster…..

Wrap fresh seafood in cling wrap or store in airtight containers. Store fresh, pasteurized or smoked seafood products at 32 to 38 °F. Refrigerate live clams, oysters, mussels, crabs, lobsters and crayfish in well-ventilated containers. Cover the container with a damp cloth or paper towel.

Buy two loaves of bread and freeze one……

Bread keeps really well in the freezer. And there are always plenty of uses for it. Just remember: Air is a bad thing! Wrap that loaf in foil (sliced or unsliced) and put it in a freezer bag before stashing.
