Miscellaneous Cooking Tips

Please replace all or   part of the flour in any recipe with whole wheat instead of bleached or   unbleached regular flour.You do not have to use   all the ingredients in specific recipes. Sometimes it effects the flavor,   other times it may actually improve the dish to leave something out or add   additional seasoning or ingredients. Just experiment with common sense. You   cannot make Chicken and Dumplings without the Chicken.

Learn to cook without   the need for measuring ingredients, except for baking. Don’t ever cook   without any seasoning or salt, much too blah!

Use Vinegar to rinse   fresh fruits and vegetables. I have seen washes specific for cleaning produce   that are expensive and I have even heard of some who use detergent to wash   off the various pesticides. Watered down vinegar solutions are great for   washing fruits and vegetables, much better than just water, safer than soap   and much cheaper than store bought products.

Be careful using   pre-washed and bagged leaf vegetables and baby carrots. You don’t really know   how clean they are and they may put various additives to preserve and prevent   browning. Fresh is best. Use a large clean bin or kitchen sink to clean all   the leaves in water with slight amount of vinegar. Then drain and rinse with   plain water. You do not have to bother with vinager if you know the products   were grown organically, such as the produce you take from your yard,   depending on how polluted the area you live in is.
