RICE COOKERS

I am not a kitchen person and do not like shopping, cooking or doing dishes. I just do it! What I have done is buy a three level rice cooker (bottom does rice, 2nd does meat and 3rd does vegetables) just hit the button and way it goes. I also use the crockpot a lot ... all in one feeds all.

Smokin'

For my 50th birthday last year I asked for and received a Bradley smoker. Now I infuse a lot of flavour with minimal calories (watch the rubs) and have succulent, incredible foods to enjoy and give as gifts. My best recipe so far is Ginger Pineapple Smoked Pork Loin. Mmmmmm, good.

Cooking with Ground Beef

If you're browning and breaking up ground beef or turkey rinse it under hot water very well before adding it to your receipe. It will wash away a lot of the fat.

Invest in a kitchen scale

I like to calculate the calories I want and weigh out the appropriate amount rather than using the serving size on the package, especially for cereal. It's more exact than dry measure and I often find I'm getting more than I had originally judged.

Taking the fat off ground mince

I brown mince the day before and put it in the fridge. When I'm ready to use it, I scoop off any fat that has formed on top and then proceed to cook as usual - minus the fat.

Variety is the "spice" of life!

The only "secret" I have to keeping it exciting in the kitchen is to switch it up constantly. I try to buy a new ingredient each time I go to the supermarket. With one new ingredient I'm bound to find a new recipe or flavor.
