Good Morning Have A Great Monday Sa Lahat




Uncommon Ingredients Explained

Over the years, Dave and I have enjoyed using of several unique products that can cause confusion for people who have never used them in the kitchen before. Whenever we talk about them, inevitably, people have questions. Today we have put together a list of 4 items that we personally use frequently, explaining what they are and how to use them.

Save Your Bacon

Anyone who has cooked bacon has seen the incredible amount of fat that accumulates in the pan. Municipalities have become aware that this type of grease is wreaking havoc in their septic pipes and they will often encourage citizens to refrain from dumping grease down the drain. Perhaps you are keeping it in an old soup can to throw out in the trash. However there are a few ways of reusing the fats and rich flavours left over from bacon cooking to your advantage.

Reuse In the Kitchen

Picture in your mind all the boxes, little strips of metal for ripping sheets off the roll, the cardboard roll itself, and all the time shopping to get these various rolls of items in your cupboard. By reusing these it results in a heck of a lot less packaging, fewer things to buy, less waste and less time in the grocery store. Reuse really does pay us back for the effort we put in.

The Ratio of Dry and Fresh Herbs

Dry herbs and fresh herbs are easily exchanged for one another in any recipe. Advice varies and it can be confusing – there are reasons for this varied advice.

Oh Squash It

Squash that is not fully ripened will not store well over the winter – the ends will begin to shrivel and soften and then the stinky rot will set in. However, when you are in the possession of an unripe winter squash, you can still use it in the kitchen and turn it into another delicious, super easy dish.

Nutritional Cooking

Despite common belief, it can be pretty simple to provide a healthy menu plan without a lot of extra shopping and spending. In fact, you can save quite a bit of money simply by being a little craftier and less wasteful.

Make Your Own Citrus Zest

Have you seen a recipe calling for citrus zest and wondered, “What the heck is that?” It can sometimes be frustrating to find it in the store, and when you do the price tag can be a little shocking. Today, we are going to explain how easy it is to make your own citrus zest.

Kitchen Water Conservation – The Nutritious Way

Water consciousness is often on people’s minds in the searing heat of summer and we are all watching the timer for exterior irrigation, tenderly taking buckets of water to our potted plants and hanging flower baskets, helping them deal with the intense heat. There are a lot of ways we can all reduce wasted water just in the kitchen alone, all year long, in fact we dedicated a whole chapter to the topic in our Trash Talk – It’s Easy To Be Green book series. Today, we’ll touch on just a few things that are so very easy to start doing in the kitchen that can have a huge impact on the way water is utilized.

How to Make Home-Made Soup Stock

You might be surprised the difference in flavour that homemade stock brings to any meal. The volume of organic waste your kitchen produces is not only reduced, but the cooked mush now takes very little time to compost. You have saved your family money by eliminating the need to buy salty, packaged broth or stock and you have increased the nutrient content in the family diet.

Fork and Beans

There’s nothing like the comforting decadence of a beautiful slice of pie. Store bought shells can be laden with lard and preservatives, come with excess packaging, are shallow and are, sadly, often stale-tasting. Making your own pre-baked pie shell is much more desirable but people often have trouble making the crust look flawless.

Using Every Little Bit of Your Leftovers

While it may seem silly to save such a small amount of leftovers, you can now see that it is a smart and ecologically sound habit. Doing this means you took something that was formally considered waste, and turned it into a whole new meal that is both tasty and nutritious. With an extended budget and less time spent shopping, creative food planning like this can unquestionably have a positive impact on both your waste output and your family budget.
