Creative Cooking Tips

  • Use a pizza cutter to cut everything at mealtime: pancakes, french toast, grilled cheese, fish sticks, sandwiches...anything that needs to be bite size. It's much faster and easier than using the knife and fork method.
  • Place bay leaves in kitchen drawers and in flour or sugar containers to keep crawling insects away.
  • Watch from the oven window to conserve energy because the oven temperature drops by 25 degrees every time the door is opened.
  • When opening canned goods, open the end that has been sitting on the shelf. The ingredients come out more easily and that end is usually the cleaner of the two.
  • Salt your food after cooking instead of before or during, and you'll use half as much or less without any difference in taste.
  • Be sure to use plenty of candles to set the mood, but never use scented candles when serving food. The two don't mix well!

Vanilla Sugar

Here is a simple recipe used in pastries, desserts and even tea or coffee. You can use this to sprinkle on French toast or grapefruit. You will use less sugar and save on vanilla by using it in place of regular sugar and vanilla.

8 cups sugar
2 vanilla beans, fresh
Pour sugar into airtight container. Shove vanilla beans down into sugar. Cover and let flavors develop for at least a week. Add new sugar as needed. Replace vanilla beans every two months.

"The working man needs quantity as well as quality, that the stomach may have something to act upon. Corned beef, cabbage, brown bread, and pastry, will not overtax his digestion. In old age the digestive organs lessen in activity, and the diet should be almost as simple as that of a child, increasing the amount of carbohydrates and decreasing the amount of proteins and fat. Many diseases which occur after middle life are due to eating and drinking such foods as were indulged in during vigorous manhood." - Source: 1918 Fanny Farmer Cookbook

Recipe for Friendship

Fold two hands together and express a dash of sorrow
Marinate it overnight and work on it tomorrow.

Dissolve the hate within you by doing a good deed
Cut in and help your friend if he should be in need.

Stir in laughter, love, and kindness from the heart it has to come
Toss with genuine forgiveness and give your neighbor some.

The amount of people served will depend on you
It can serve the whole wide world if you really want it to.
