The Cooking Corner

cooking coner 2You will find that the Cooking Corner is a section here that’s really fun to explore.  I have tried to provide you with an array of interesting subjects.  There is something for everyone.

Cooking Tips…
There is a section on cooking tips from making meal planning easier to brining turkeys for the holidays.  Plus, there are some ideas on ways to save money but still provide healthy meals.

Health Tips…
I’ve put together a special section on health tips.  This section includes a chart on substituting high calories items for lower calorie ones and other healthier options. There are several articles on healthy foods and drinks and some articles on things you may have never heard about.

Holiday Treats…
One of my favorite sections is on holiday treats and meals.  I love to cook for the holidays and make different items I make only at those festive times of the year.  I think that makes them special and my family always looks forward to them.  I’m sure you have your specialties you make on the holidays. If you would like to share your favorite holiday treats in this section, just contact me here and I will be sure to post them to share with everyone.

Slow Cooking and Pressure Cooking Tips and Tricks…
There are also special ideas on slow cooking and pressure cooking.  Some are recipes and others are tips on how to best use these appliances to make your life easier while preparing scrumptious meals.

Outdoor Cooking…
There is also a section on outdoor cooking.  We love to cook outside on the grill, you can actually make  whole meals on the grill by roasting your vegetables while cooking your meat.  Just put a little olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder and you will love the taste – plus no clean up.

Children and Cooking…
I am a firm believer that children should be involved in everyday cooking, so I have included a section specifically to get kids cooking.  You can have special recipes from a children’s cookbook, off the web or you can have them help with your recipes.  There is something in every recipe that children can help with, even if it is just cutting up fresh vegetables.  Get them involved!

Book Reviews…
Another favorite section of mine is the review of cookbooks.  I must admit I can’t pass up a good cookbook.  I have included reviews of ones I think are top of the line.  In the reviews I discuss what I think is special about them and talk about some of the recipes.  Don’t miss this section, you are sure to find something you will fall in love with.  If you have a special cookbook you would like to share, please email me and share what you like about it so I can review it also.
