Never fail baked chicken

I thaw boneless skinless chicken breasts and cover both sides liberally with seasoning of choice. Perhaps GrillMates Monterrey Chicken or any number of homemade spice mixes. Put in a 13x9 inch pan & spray with nonstick spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Always moist & delicious!

Easy Organization for Salad or Sandwich Preparation

I like to be able to make a meal in less than 10 minutes... so to speed things up I store all my salad makins (lettuce, green onion, tomato, nuts, etc) in a bin in the refrigerator crisper. When I make a salad, I just take out the bin and it saves a lot of time. I use the same method for sandwiches

Chew Gum While Cooking

I chew gum when I'm cooking anything that will be a temptation for me to snack on. Somehow the thought of food mixed up in my gum keeps the snacking from occurring.

Microwave cooking can really save time.

I precook almost all of my vegetables in my microwave. This is especially good for onions and root vegetables. We love onions and sauteeing them till clear is needed in many recipes. No spatter when micro-sauteed Less oil is needed.The microwave ensures greens stay bright green and attractive.
