  • SO PAM THINKS SHE CAN COOK – OR – LITTLE KNOWN COOKING TIPS

    Posted on January 29th, 2011 Pam No comments

    Most of you know ‘I CAN’T COOK’, but I have lots of cook books I love watching cooking shows. So I have learned a few neat tricks and tips along the way. Here are a few of them.

    1. Using a wisk when mixing dry ingredients with flour eliminates the need to sift the flour.

    2. Using a electric mixer to make mashed potatoes can cause them to be gummy, use a hand masher instead.

    3. When sauteing garlic, it is important to make sure not to over-cook it. It burns easily.

    4. When making peanut brittle, it is best to stir often, this mixture can scorch easily.

    5. When using lemon or lime zest it is best not to grate any of the white stuff that is just under the outer peeling.

    6. Using a plastic ketchup bottle makes a no-mess pancake batter dispenser.
