Do you have a kitchen or cooking secret that saves time, calories or clean up?
Instead of a traditional cutting board, I have a thin, flexible, light-weight silicon cutting "sheet". It's easy to move around the kitchen, easy to transfer cut food with (it flexes!), and easy to clean.
My 3 year old hates veggies... If your child loves eggs like mine does give him/her egg whites with veggies chopped very thin into it and hide it with a little tomatoe sauce or ketchup on top. You can mix veggies into almost anything and cover-up the colors with sauces or a little cheese!
Coastal Indian Food uses a lot of Shallots(Red Onions) and Dry Coconut as a base for the Curry. I slice 2-3 kgs of Shallots very thinly and deep fry these in Rice Bran Oil till crisply golden.Drain on Paper Towels to soak up all the excess Oil.When cooled and drained store these in Tupperware.

GREAT TIPS FOR BAKING EXCHANGES

Save time and energy by melting chocolate in thr microwave: depending on the amount, about 2 minutes on High should do.
I am trying to keep up with the nutrition list.
In addition to draining the ground meats, beef, turkey, chicken, pork, etc. Take the pot and put a wire strainer over it then run it under hot water and drain. This will wash away most of the fat. If you season while you cook, you'll need to re-season, because it washes your seasoning away too.
