Do you have a kitchen or cooking secret that saves time, calories or clean up?
There's a NO sodium bouillon - chicken and beef - by Herb Ox now. I use it for everything, any time I don't have my home-made broth (which is most of the time.) By the time I get all the rest of the flavors in the dish, I really can't tell the difference - and the sodium savings is huge.
I love to cook but the mess I used to make in the kitchen was terrible.
Delicious and nutritious and easy!
1 c. Dannon all natural lowfat vanilla yogurt
1/2 frozen blueberries
1/3 c. granola
DIRECTIONS: Pour blueberries in bottom of sealable container and cover with yogurt and top with granola. Seal and carry to eat on the go. YUM!
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.

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.
I have a spice that is called "Slap your momma" It is Cajun. it is good on every thing. Even mac and cheese.
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.
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.
