Baking Cakes……

 

If you put a cake into an oven that’s not hot enough, it will affect the way it rises. Fan ovens can dry a cake slightly so for a longer shelf-life use the conventional setting. And then you can have your cake and eat too!

Pancake hints………

 

Mix your pancake batter just until ingredients are blended. Over mixing will give you tough, chewy pancakes. Also flip them once and only once. One of the easiest ways to know when to flip pancakes is to wait for bubbles to form and burst in the center.

Leave the Burgers alone……..

 

Constant turning will toughen and dry out meat, and if you flip too soon, burgers will stick. Cook 2 minutes per side for rare, 3 for medium-rare, 4 for medium, and 5 for well-done. Grill On!

Sneaking in the vegetables……

 

Looking for a way to sneak more vegetables into your children’s diets, try this one! Make your own Tomato Soup or Tomato Sauce. Then take some carrots, mushrooms, scallions, or zucchini and put them into a food processor. Chop them or puree them all together then add it to the Soup or Sauce as its cooking.

Buying Blueberries…….

 

When you buy fresh blueberries, look for berries that are firm, dry, plump and smooth-skinned, with a silvery surface bloom and no leaves or stems. Size isn’t an indicator of maturity but color is – berries should be deep purple-blue to blue-black.

Refrigerate fresh blueberries when you get them home, either in their original plastic pack or in a covered bowl or container. Be sure to wash your blueberries just before you start snacking, and eat them within 10 days of purchase.

Roasted Whole Chicken………

 

To add flavor and keep a whole chicken moist during roasting, gently lift the breast skin, and tuck slices of lemon or orange underneath. Brush with oil, season, and place in a hot oven. Use unwaxed lemons if possible.
