Substitute Raw Sugar for Honey

Most recipes that call for honey can substitute sugar. Instead of using refined white sugar, use Sugar in the Raw. This will greatly decrease your overall sugar and carbohydrate intake while giving your body something it can digest more easily. Natural is always the best option!

fresh herbs

In spring, I head to the nursey and stock up on fresh herb plants. They really bring out the flavors in salad dressings. My favorite is mint which I boil with two large tea bags and 10 quarts of water for my iced tea supply.

Food measuring time saver

I eat oatmeal for breakfast and I know that 1/2 cup is a serving. So, I leave the 1/2 cup measure in the container and I can measure it out quickly.

To remove excess fat on soups and stews.

After removing the pot from the stove let it cool for a couple of minutes to let the fat settle on top. Wrap a few ice cubes in a cloth and draw it across the stew/soup the fat will congeal on to the cloth and can be easily removed.

Applesauce for Oil

When baking, I use applesauce instead of oil. I get the packs of individual sized applesauce so that I don't waste opening a can or jar and the rest goes bad. YUM!
