Coffee please…….

 

Next time you’re cooking a lamb or beef stew, try this secret ingredient: Add a few tablespoons of black coffee and your stew will have a nice dark color and a rich taste. This tip also works well for gravies.

Grilling Ribs………….

 

When cooking Ribs apply the barbecue sauce — especially a sweet sauce — during the final minutes of cooking. (Otherwise, the sugar will burn before the meat is cooked.) Move the sauced ribs directly over the fire. Watch carefully, and don’t let the sugars burn. Also remember – every time you open a grill, you lose heat and smoke—two of the most important elements for making a great meal. Get that grill fired up!

Whole Grains……..

 

Choose whole grain pasta for high fiber, healthy pasta dishes. If you find that whole wheat pasta is too heavy to eat on its own, you can mix it half and half with refined pasta that is the same shape.

Freezing Ground Meat…….

 

Before freezing ground meat, flatten it into a square or into patties, rather than leaving it in a mound. It will thaw faster later. Plus it will save on that valuable freezer space!

What, use Buttermilk?…………

 

 

Thank you to Kim K. for passing this hint along………

 

When cake mix calls for water use buttermilk instead. It will make the lightest and best cakes. Plus it will give it that homemade taste.

Keep the lid on……

 

When using the Slow Cooker – Every time you take the lid off it will release some of the heat, so if you keep doing this you’ll have to increase the cooking time. So keep that lid on!

Making Pie Crust……..

 

Do not over-handle the pie crust; overworking develops the gluten and toughens the dough. It’s okay to see flakes of yellow from the butter and egg yolk. Also, when working the dough, use your fingertips instead of the warmer palms of the hand.
