Smells coming from the kitchen can many times evoke childhood memories of grandma’s famous apple pie or thanksgiving dinner. Creating lasting memories like these for your little one is important. The following cooking tips will help you to savor those old memories as well as cook up some new ones for generations to come.
When this happens, it’s still possible to salvage it. In a small bowl, combine two tablespoons of cornstarch and one tablespoon of water. Take this mixture and slowly stir it into the thin sauce, and this will make it thicker. When adding, do so gradually and continue to stir to avoid making your sauce too thick.
Use a heavy-duty, zip-lock plastic bag to separate pan drippings. After roasting the meat, pour the pan drippings into a zip-lock plastic bag. Let the fat rise to the top. Carefully snip off one of the bottom corners of the bag, and pour out the fat-free broth. The fat will stay in the plastic bag, and you will have a tasty broth as a base for gravy or a sauce.
The best thing that you can do when you are making hamburgers is to engage in trial and error. Instead of guessing that the meat is cooked well, make a small patty and taste it yourself. This will allow you to adjust your level of seasoning and cook your burger more if it needs it.
When it comes to cooking a good habit to do after preparing garlic is to rub your hands on the stainless steel sink vigorously for about 30 seconds. This will remove the unwanted odor from your hands. Washing them in less than 30 seconds will not take all the odor away.
If you invest in nothing else in the line of cookware, purchase a non-stick roasting pan with a removable non-stick roasting rack. Instead of wrestling with a disposable roasting pan this Thanksgiving, praying it doesn’t collapse, a decent quality roasting pan can save you time, money, and heartache. Look for a deep pan with steel handles, able to hold the largest turkey or piece of meat that you would normally buy for your family, along with a roasting rack that enables you to lift the meat from the pan effortlessly. The non-stick coating will make clean-up a breeze and the pan can also be used for a large sheet cake, a pan of lasagne and so much more.
