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!
