Cooking Tips

Tea Time
H/T to Brother John

Reheat Pizza

Heat up leftover pizza in a non-stick skillet on top of the stove, set heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza. I saw this on the cooking channel and it really works. (We have always warmed pizza this way. Pizza comes out so much more tasty.)

Easy Deviled Eggs

Put cooked egg yolks in a zip lock bag. Seal the bag and mash till they are all broken up.
Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep mashing it up, mixing thoroughly.
Cut the tip of the baggy, squeeze the mixture into the egg.
Then simply throw bag away when done - easy clean up.

Expanding Frosting

When you buy a container of cake frosting from the store, whip it with your mixer for a few minutes. You can double it in size. You get to frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount. You also eat fewer sugar/calories per serving.

Reheating Refrigerated Bread

To warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were refrigerated, place them in a microwave with a cup of water. The increased moisture will keep the food moist and help it reheat faster.

Measuring Cups

Before you pour sticky substances into a measuring cup, fill it with hot water.
Dump out the hot water, but don't dry the cup. Next, add your ingredient (such as peanut butter) and watch how easily it comes right out.
