More Cooking and Kitchen Tips
Ready To Go Garlic
When I buy my garlic, I open and peel them all at the same time and then put the peeled cloves in a baggie and store in my fridge, so when I need garlic, it's ready for cookong and my fingers only smell like garlic once!
Remember to Sift
Over the years, I have done a lot of baking with whole grain flours including wheat, rice, barley, etc. I've found that sifting these heavier flours - even when the recipe does not call for it - will make the end result much lighter and tastier!
