Super Easy Creamy Spicy Salad Dressing

Mix a very small amount of ranch (preferably reduced-fat) with some salsa for a great salad dressing or dip. You can enjoy the creaminess of ranch and the spicy flavor, but only with minimal fat and calories!

No Nutritional Information? Email and Ask!

If you look on a restaurant's website and they don't list any nutritional information, send a polite email and ask if they have information available. This week I've been able to get stats from three different restaurants!

Prepare and Freeze Burgers!

Make your own burgers with lean beef or turkey, doctered up with spices, onions, bits of cheese, worceshire, teriyaki, or whatever you fancy, then freeze patties between parchment paper to pull out for quick meals!

Much better than hitting the drive-thru & you know exactly what you're eating!

Freshen Up the Sink!

When you have leftover orange, lemon, or lime rinds, grind them in the sink disposal to naturally freshen up your sink.

Keep Grated Carrots and Cabbage Around!

And add them to everything! They add crunch and nutrients to sandwiches, tuna salad, stews, stir fries, eggs, and a whole slew of other things!

I buy mine pre-shredded, as I'm lazy, but you definitely can DIY!

Silicone Muffin Pans

Silicone muffin pans -- regular, mini, or individual -- are GREAT for freezing servings of gravy, rice, beans, BBQ, or anything else. Unlike regular plastic ice cube trays, nothing sticks! Once you've frozen whatever you're freezing, pop them into a labeled (and dated!) plastic freezer baggie.

Spices Can Open Up a Whole New World!

I love trying new spices - they can turn a plain chicken breast from Italian to Cajun to Moroccan to Thai!

Some great resources are www.thespicehouse.com, www.penzeys.com, or www.victoriagourmet.com. Also try the bulk spices department at your local fancy grocer!
