About those Sweet Potatoes…….

Sweet potatoes are a rich source of fiber as well as containing a good array of vitamins and minerals including iron, calcium, selenium, and they’re a good source of most of our B vitamins and vitamin C. One of the key nutritional benefits of sweet potato is that they’re high in an antioxidant known as beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A once consumed.

Increase your Omega-3……..

Select oils that provide omega-3 fatty acids, such as canola or flax seed oil. Also add walnuts to cereal, salads or muffins. Try walnut oil in salad dressings, too.

When using a Wok…….

Always let the pan heat for a few minutes before putting ingredients in it. Two or 3 tablespoons of any vegetable oil is all you need, and give the oil at least a minute to heat up, too. Wok on!

Kick up those Scrambled Eggs in the morning……

 
Eggs can be scrambled with onions, peppers, and tomatoes, but they can also be scrambled with spinach or kale. A sprinkle of cheese can do wonders and I like using leftover chili.

Thank you to Cooking Bob for passing this hint along…….

 
Smash garlic cloves inside a resealable plastic bag with the back of a knife. That way, your cutting board and knife won’t smell.

Something’s Fishy…….

 

When cooking fish, to eliminate fish odor from your hands, rub them with a wedge of fresh lemon.

Corn hint…..

 
Never add salt to the water when boiling corn; table salt contains traces of calcium, which will toughen the kernels. Instead, add a little milk, which will bring out the sweetness of the corn.

Freezer hint…..

 
You can freeze any food except canned or preserved food and whole eggs. Some foods, however, do not freeze well. High – fat products like cream and mayonnaise tend to separate when defrosted, and high water content vegetables such as lettuce and cucumbers will go soggy. Freezer temperature is critical for maintaining the quality of foods. Keep it set at 0 degrees.

Slow Cooker Hints……..

 

* Slow cookers are great for cooking cheaper cuts like beef brisket, pork shoulder, lamb shoulder and chicken thighs. You can also use less meat as slow-cooking really extracts a meaty flavor that throughout the whole dish. Bulk up with vegetables instead!

* The lid should fit snugly over the slow cooker with no gaps for steam to escape. Slow cookers depend on bringing your food up to a stable temperature (usually around 210°) and keeping it there. If the lid isn’t snug, the cooker won’t work as efficiently. If your lid doesn’t fit snugly and has some gaps, wrap a sheet of aluminum foil over the top of the cooker to seal everything in.

* A lot of slow-cooker recipes require only some basic prep work like cutting vegetables or trimming meat before everything gets added into the slow cooker. If you have time, you’ll get better flavor in your final dish if you also brown the meat and sear the vegetables.

When making boiling Eggs….

 

 

Cover the eggs with cold water, not hot. When cooking hard-boiled eggs, we want the water covering the eggs to heat from cold to boiling. By starting with cold water and not hot, the temperature rises slower, preventing the risk of shells cracking and promoting even cooking.
