Cooking Tips & Tricks

~ “To make your dish taste just perfect, my secret ingredient is to add a little cayenne pepper” – Mamaw Jane Montgomery, Port Gibson, Mississippi (the best cook I know)

~ “How can a nation be great if its bread tastes like Kleenex?” – Julia Child

Ordering Food

~ “An egg slicer can be used to slice strawberries, olives, and mushrooms for pretty garnish.”
~ “To decorate a child’s birthday cake, take them to the local dollar store to find their favorite little toys (plastic animals, army men, motorcycles, little tea sets, etc…) and use them as cake toppers. This is cheaper than official cake decorating kits and the children have a fun toy to play with after the party.”
~ “Saving various amounts of leftover vegetables from each meal in small freezer bags is a great way to “save up” ingredients to make homemade vegetable soup or pot pie.”
~ “Make FAMILY SIZED SUBS with one long loaf of French Bread… Wrap in foil andn use while camping or picnicing.”
