    Is your tofu mushy, watery, or crumbly? Are you having trouble getting it to brown? Try this. It's the perfect method for cooking tofu because it takes advantage of its moisture content. The results are so firm and flavorful that you will be able to convert the meat-eating non-believers! As a bonus, this is a VERY low-fat recipe!

    I always have a big herb garden in the summer. Basil especially just grows like crazy and I hate wasting it! A few years ago I was looking for how to freeze them, and kept reading about chopping and freezing them in water in ice cube trays or spreading them on cookie sheets to freeze, etc, etc. It just sounded like too much work. Then I stumbled across someone who claimed to do the following. It works great and tastes just as yummy as fresh! :O)

    Recipe #422240

    Based on a recipe from Jennifer Cornbleet's book, Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People. She says in its introduction, "Freeze your extra bananas so you will always have some on hand for quick shakes." Unfortunately for me, I froze my bananas before reading her recipe! I will update after I discover how truly difficult it is to peel a frozen banana! UPDATE: it's truly difficult! :( I will definitely go with this recipe the next time! :)

    Recipe #341808

    This is easy to make--just make sure you use 1 tablespoon of cornstarch per 1 cup of sugar.

    Recipe #88812

    If you come across a great buy on lemons or limes and want to save some for later use, they can be frozen.

    Recipe #410387

    Does running your fruit over a box grater / hand grater not work? Here is a handy post on how to zest citrus fruits using your handheld kitchen appliances since the by-hand way is so time consuming! I keep a jar of dried orange zest around but I like fresh lemon/lime zest sometimes.

    Recipe #429187

    Try this seasoning instead of using the packets of taco seasoning. Makes a great gift too! This not only saves you money it tastes better too! You control the amounts- feel free to adjust to fit your taste. If you like it hotter you can add some cayenne or up the chili powder! Enjoy!

    Although the ingredients sound unprepossessing; it is technique that makes this THE Salad. Be sure to pay attention to details to bring this to Olympian heights. Quantities give here assume that the salad is a major part of the meal, as in hearty bread-soup-salad dinner. If the meal has more courses, scale portion sizes down accordingly. THE Salad is at its height only very briefly, and after the moment has passed, it’s passed and nothing in the world can bring it back…. Everyone should be sitting down and ready to eat before you start tossing THE Salad. And get the salad plates out of the freezer only as the salad is completed. This recipe is more of a technique with some fabulous secrets I learned from The Dairy Hollow House Cookbook. I never thought I would use a recipe to make a simple green salad….but I am so glad I did. I hope you are too! Enjoy!

    Recipe #150702

    I often use flax seed and water as an egg replacer, but if you want to avoid a nutty taste, this can be used in baking, too. It is closer to the commercial egg replacers. From Vegetarian Times, January 2007.

    Toasting pecans brings out their flavor.

    Recipe #2688

    I got a kick out of this and thought you might too. Boiling water is essential to many recipes. If you have never cooked before, don't worry. It is not as difficult as it may appear. This recipe will guide you through the process, even if you have never set foot in a kitchen. Adapted from Serious Eats. Submitted by Adam Kuban. Thanks Adam!

    Recipe #445229

    The perfect pot of English tea leads to the perfect cup of English tea! I know this is NOT a recipe, but it is amazing how many people do not know how to make a PROPER POT of tea! We always make a pot of tea at home - even if there is only one of us here, we just use a smaller pot! I also prefer loose tea to tea-bags, but we do use good quality tea-bags as well. This is my method for making a perfect pot of tea, and therefore a perfect cuppa. This has been posted due to a request from my daughter, who obviously has FAR more sophisticated tastes as a university student than I did when I was one!! Plus, what can be nicer then baking a cake, inviting a couple of friends over and having a natter with a cuppa? It puts the world to rights! Quantities are listed for a pot of tea for two.....you can increase or decrease the amounts to suit.The following extract is from Mrs Beeton's book of Household Management printed in 1880; here she suggests the method for a "perfect" cup of tea, using loose tea of course and NOT tea bags! "There is very little art in making good tea; if the water is boiling, and there is no sparing of the fragrant leaf, the beverage will almost invariably be good. The old-fashioned plan of allowing a teaspoonful to each person, and one over, is still practised. Warm the teapot with boiling water; let it remain for two or three minutes for the vessel to become thoroughly hot, then pour it away. Put in the tea, pour in from 1/2 to 3/4 pint of boiling water, close the lid, and let it stand for the tea to draw from 5 to 10 minutes; then fill up the pot with water. The tea will be quite spoiled unless made with water that is actually ‘boiling’, as the leaves will not open, and the flavour not be extracted from them; the beverage will consequently be colourless and tasteless,—in fact, nothing but tepid water. Where there is a very large party to make tea for, it is a good plan to have two teapots instead of putting a large quantity of tea into one pot; the tea, besides, will go farther. When the infusion has been once completed, the addition of fresh tea adds very little to the strength; so, when more is required, have the pot emptied of the old leaves, scalded, and fresh tea made in the usual manner."

    My Mom taught me what to do when your celery gets rubbery. I used to just toss it, but if you put it in a jar or vase (I use a ceramic pitcher) full of water it looks brand new again. Sometimes I leave the celery standing up like that in the fridge (just cut off the bottom so it is easier to stand), or put it on the counter in water for 30 minutes or so before you use it for the same effect. Today I decided I wanted to freeze celery, but I didn't know if it was possible. I found it it was possible on thriftyfun.com Once frozen, you won't want to eat it raw but it will be ready for cooked dishes.

    Wondering what to do with all that squash? Freeze it for next time. Food remains at top quality for 3 to 6 months, and is still safe to eat after 6 months. Recipe courtesy of The Settlement Cookbook.

    Recipe #437061

    You can't go wrong with this method.
