Don’t Lick Your Fingers!
Posted on 03.25.08 by itscrazydelicious @

Do not lick your fingers when you are cooking. Not only is it really gross for the peopl that will be eating your food but you could be poisoning yourself. If you are dealing with chicken or raw eggs you could get salmonella. This can be easily avoided if you just restrain from the the fingers! And always wash your hands. You do not want to get everyone else sick and you just may. Just remember this – sometimes you just don’t think to so make a little sign to remind yourself. Get nice soap too – it will make you want to wash your hands.

Trouble Seperating Those Eggs
Posted on 10.25.07 by itscrazydelicious @

There are appliances and things on the market now that you can actually buy to seperate your eggs – the whites from the yolks. But perhaps you do not have this gadget or maybe you do but you can not find it or it is already dirty sitting in the dishwasher. Just take out a funnel you have and crack it down the funnel – the whites should just slide out and the yolk should stay in tact inside the funnel.

Stinky Vegetables
Posted on 10.18.07 by itscrazydelicious @

I love to make broccoli and cabbage but the smell just really annoys the rest of my family when I am cooking them. So, here is a tip that I am going to try and I am hoping that it will actually work. I am going to put a piece of white bread on the top of the pot lid. Supposedly it is suppose to absorb the odor. I will try it …why not right!

Frozen Fish
Posted on 10.16.07 by itscrazydelicious @

Personally, I like fresh fish however there are many times where you may just have to have the frozen fish because you just simply do not have the time. That is ok…but you do not want ot have the frozen fish taste … you still would like it to have that fresh fish taste so just soak it in milk whilk it thaws…you will make it taste 99% fresher than just taking it right out of the freezer!

A Little Lemon Will Prevent A Lot
Posted on 10.14.07 by itscrazydelicious @

Do you have soggy lettuce…well if it just became soggy then you can fix it. Just had some lemon juice in a bowl of cold water iwht your soggy lettuce and put it in the fridge for around an hour. After that just put it on some paper towels to dry and you are allset to put them in your salad or your sandwich. Now you do not have to run on out to the market to make that sandwich that you have been craving all day.

Beer and Meat
Posted on 10.10.07 by itscrazydelicious @

Here is another great tip with beer..if you want a super tenerizer for that tough meat that you bought really cheap then put a can of bear of it and let it soak for an hour and then cook it. What I do is marinate it overnight in the refridgerator. This also works really great if you are cooking meati int he crockpot too. Sometime I just do not have the money for the expensive meat so this trick really saves me a lot of money!

Use Your Baster
Posted on 10.10.07 by itscrazydelicious @

A baster is not just good for that once a year turkey dinner or for your full chicken meals either. You can use it year round. It makes for the perfect measurer for your pancakes, muffins and even cookies because it will allow you to put the perfect amount on your griddle or cookie sheet. So if you have that baster – don’t let it collect dust until November…use it year round!

How To Get Rid of Your Cooking Oil
Posted on 10.08.07 by itscrazydelicious @

You do not want to just put your cooking oil down the kitchen sinks drain. This is just going to cause you major plumbing in the future. First, just wait for it to cool and put it in a seal able bag and then throw it away. It costs a lot less to get some cheap disposable plastic bags as opposed to finding that plumber to help fix your clogged drains and pipes!!

Marshmallows
Posted on 10.07.07 by itscrazydelicious @

I put marshmallows in my brown sugar bag because I just had to go to get some brown sugar for my cooking recipes and for it to be literally at times as hard as a rock. This way the marshmallows keep it nice and soft and separated. Much easier to put in your measuring cups and pack down because most recipes require you to pack the brown sugar down for a certain amount. And it is a lot cheaper than having to go out and get a new bag of brown sugar!

Here is one for you. Have you ever had one of those days where all of your utensils are in your dirty dishwasher and you just make this great cake. Well, sure you can go and clean a life so that you can cut it but a better way is with dental floss.

Wash Your Fruit and Vegetables!!!
Posted on 09.22.07 by itscrazydelicious @

I can not stress enough the importance of cleaning your fruits and vegetables before you eat them or cook them. Not only do you want to wash off pesticides but it just healthier. Think of all the people that have touched all of that vegetables and fruit…kinda discusting if you ask me. You do not want to get sick just because you didn’t clean and wash it off. So wash your stuff before you eat it!!!

Apple Cider Vinaigrette
Posted on 09.21.07 by itscrazydelicious @

I know how healthy that apple cider vinegar can be but many people just can not take the taste of this. I found this product that i have been using on my salads that just love. You an get it right on amazon too – but the shipping is a little costly. I think they sell this at Whole Foods though also. It is the Braggs Apple Cider Vinaigrette and it is just so tasty and very healthy for you. Even if you do not like vinaigrette – this is a really nice one. Try it!

Use Your Jar Lids
Posted on 09.20.07 by itscrazydelicious @

I do not know about you but when I cook I always make just such a mess. But here is a simple tip to eliminate one clean up for you. When you are making something or heating up something like sauce that comes in a jar – do not throw away the jar. Take the lid and use it as a spoon rest. This way you will not get sauce encrusted all over your countertop or your stove. Thus there will be less clean up!

Cook With Your Kids
Posted on 09.08.07 by itscrazydelicious @

I think it is a great thing to introduce to your child. Here is the thing though….alot of people are always worried about the mess that comes along with it…that is ok. Let your child make a little mess. As long as they are not doing it on purpose then what is the harm. It is find as long as you also teach them to clean up. That is very important. Help them clean up but show them how and start them with this early. Otherwise they will never clean up and sometimes certain things have a special clean up process. Have fun!!!

Camping and Cooking
Posted on 09.03.07 by itscrazydelicious @

Do you like to go camping and cooking in the out doors. Well be sure to take your seasonings because just because you are cooking outdoors doesn’t mean your food has to be black and gross. Get out those film canisters and fill them up and label them with your favorite spices that you already have. You don’t have to go out and spend more money on the little canister of spices…this does the trick just find!

Sneezing
Posted on 09.03.07 by itscrazydelicious @

If you have to sneeze while you are cooking…sneeze in your sleeve or in your arm rying to go away from the food. Sometimes a sneeze just happens and you have no way of stopping it. But you can stop it from going in your food…gross!! And dont just sneeze in the air either because you are making it more available to the food because the germs are not really contained. And do not forget to wash your hands even though your sneezed in your arm. Try to think of the people you are cooking for. And even if you are just cooking for yourself…wash your hands.

Cook To Music
Posted on 09.02.07 by itscrazydelicious @

I just got an ipod and I know I am so behind the times. But I just love to cook and even clean to the music. It just makes it so much more enjoyable. And now there are these ipods that you can get that hook up under your cabinets. That is something that I am looking into. But if you like to cook – try it to music. Just be sure to concentrate and put that timer on. That is the only draw back – I got a little distracted with the music and I almost ruined my dish. It wasn’t that big of a dish but still!!!

Chestnut Shells Opened
Posted on 08.27.07 by itscrazydelicious @

Do you have trouble opening those chestnut shells? No problem here is what you do. Use the pointed end of the bottle opener that you have. You pierce the tops and the bottoms of them and then just boil them and you will have chestnuts without the shells. Just boil it for 10 minute and then you will be all set. My grandmother told me this tip and she is full of great stuff. I should really talk to her more because she is amazing in the kitchen!

Cleaning Your Countertops
Posted on 08.21.07 by itscrazydelicious @

If you do not like to clean your kitchen top with harsh cleansers then try some vinegar. It really does the trick. i love to use it because if it does end up in the food or on me then I am not really worried because it is all natural. And then when you put food directly on the counter you do not have to worry about the poison of products going into your food. Vinegar is a great anti-disinfectant and I use it all the times. And if I do use other products I always rinse it off with the vinegar or water.
