Tips & Tricks

~ Some foods just taste better as “leftovers.” When foods sit together for extended periods of time, the flavors combine and often change to develop even better flavors. My grandmother calls this phenomenon “Marrying” of the flavors within your foods.

~ Reheating Your Leftovers: To keep your leftovers from becoming dry when you reheat them, spritz them with a little water and place a cover over them before putting in the microwave or oven. This works well for casseroles, individual plates of foods, desserts, and breads. – Tip from: Mamaw Jane Montgomery

~ It is usually better to use Quick Oats instead of Old Fashioned Oats when baking cookies if you desire a cookie that is easier to chew.
~ Rotisserie chicken (bought pre-cooked at the grocery store) is easier to debone when warm and can be used in recipes calling for cooked, chopped chicken – saving you some valuable time and effort.
~ Frozen pie shells usually come in packages of two – When making a quiche (or pie, pot pie, etc), make two – one for you and one for a friend who has had a hard week.
