Did you know that Raisins………..

Raisins pack more nutrition than their small size might indicate. When grapes are dehydrated to produce raisins, the nutrients become more concentrated, making a handful of raisins a snack rich in B vitamins, iron and potassium. Besides nutrients, raisins are also a good source of carbohydrates for energy.

Why I prefer Buffalo over Beef……….

There are many health benefits of eating buffalo. Rich in flavor, low in fat and high in protein, buffalo meat is an ideal substitute for beef in your favorite recipes. Bison meat is lower in calories and cholesterol than beef, pork, turkey, skinless chicken and even some fish!

Cookies…….

* Chilling the dough helps softer doughs keep their shape and makes the dough easier to work with. I find that chilling the dough improves the flavor and allows the dough to relax a bit.
* Bake one sheet of cookies at a time on the middle oven rack; if you need to bake more than one at a time, rotate the sheets from the top rack to the bottom rack halfway through baking to encourage even browning.
* Check cookies for doneness at the minimum baking time.
* As a rule, let cookies cool on the baking sheet for 1 or 2 minutes, just long enough to firm them slightly and make it easier to slide them off the sheet and onto a rack……

When making a batch of Chili……

To make a classic beef chili that’s still healthy, choose Beef that is at least 90%-lean, which fits into the USDA guidelines for lean meats. Or opt for lean and flavorful ground Turkey Breast or ground Bison instead. Also feel free to use generous amounts of spice in your chili. It’s a great way to add great flavor without any added fat or calories.

Cottage Cheese………..

Because of its high water content, cottage cheese doesn’t last as long as other food products in the refrigerator. To extend its life, store it in the container upside down. This will also work for other dairy products like mayonnaise and sour cream

Don’t Peel it………

All fruits and vegetables have nutrient and fiber dense skin, so if you have tender product don’t bother peeling. Just make sure it is washed well. Carrots, sweet potatoes and beets all roast up great skin on.

Duck, Duck,………..

If your cooking Duck for the first time and not sure how to season it; A few herbs, zest of an orange or some star anise placed inside the cavity will give a good aroma and add to the flavor when cooking.

Simmering………

When making Homemade Soup keep this hint in mind; Once soup has come to a boil, reduce to a simmer and make sure that it stays there. Boil things too vigorously, and the vegetables will get mushy, the meat will toughen, and the noodles will start to break down.
