    About Me

    I am going to use this spot to put some of my favorite cooking tips and tricks that don't really warrant going in as a recipe and so I don't lose them!!

    Get rid of fruit flies - small dish with vinegar and few drops of dish washing detergent

    Whipped Cream ahead of time - line a strainer with cheesecloth or coffee filter - spoon in whipped cream set inside a bowl and put in fridge. Some liquid will drip through but what remains will stay thick - even possibly overnight. Discard the liquid or whip it back into the mix if you want.

     

    Store brown sugar and marshmallows in the freezer - they won't get stale.

    If you don't do that add hardened marshmallows to hot applesauce or stewed rhubarb! Delish

    Place 2 tbsp of butter in your baking dish and pour it around the dish. Then place the dish in the freezer for a few minutes until hardened. Pour in your batter and bake - the cake will pop right out every time.

    I love canned biscuits. You can make so many things with them. Cut a hole and fry - you have a donut. Flatten them - you have a pie crust. Stretch and wrap around hot dogs or little smokies - you have pigs in a blanket. Flatten them, spread with butter and sprinkle on sugar and cinnamon - you have a tasty tea biscuit. Add 1/2 cup of shredded cheese to a can of biscuits then roll thin and cut into small squares, bake till crisp - you have cheesy snack crackers.

    To strain broth remove meat and bones. Line a colander with a double layer of cheese cloth and place over bowl.

    I always use red potatoes for a potatoe salad as they don't absorb excess dressing or break apart as easily as other varities.

    Handy Help Measurer:

    1 cup of these fruits and or veggies should equal close to one item: carrot, onion, potato, sweet pepper, apples, tomato

    2 1/2 c. sliced carrots = 1 lb raw carrots

    4 cups green beans = 1lb fresh beans

    1 cup mashed banana = 3 medium bananas

    1 tsp grated lemon rind = 1 medium lemon

    2 Tbsp lemon juice = 1 medium lemon

    1 cup orange juice = 3 medium oranges

    4 cups sliced peaches = 8 medium peaches

    2 cups sliced strawberries = 1 pint strawberries

    1 cup soft breadcubes = 2 slices bread

    1 cup egg whites = 6-7 large eggs

    3 1/2-4 cup chopped nuts = 1 lb nuts

    RICE NOTES: 1 cup white rice, 2 cups water = 3 cups cooked rice

    Never stir rice while cooking unless the recipe says too - this will make it sticky.

    Squeeze lemon juice into cooking water for a great flavor and wonderfully white rice

    To seperate grains sauce rice in a bit of oil or butter before adding liquid.
