Salad spinner is vital for salad making. If you've had a salad that is watery and the dressing just won't stick, the salad spinner was not used. Drying salad greens is the difference between a good salad and one that is not. But it can also be used for draining pasta, or for dredging anything in the flour, like when making fried chicken. One quick turn in the salad spinner and you'll have perfectly dredged chicken for frying.

Having a hard time blending your food? Stick blender is one handy tool! Just a few safety tips: Do not use while pot is directly on the flame. Also, use an extension cord if your plug is too far away from the counter. Better to avoid the mess than have to clean it afterwards. So, you will have a clean food less the mess in preparing this pumpkin soup.

The bamboo steamer is one of those kitchen tools that just gets better with age. You can use it to make steamed fish, like we did here or even leche flan. The steamer also allows you to cook veggies and proteins in one shot allowing you to save gas. Department stores usually carry only small to medium steamers. To find larger ones, heat to specialty stores anywhere. This is one great help in the kitchen that does well every time.

I learned from children that a 30-minute play would not be enough to make their day. There seems to be plenty of activities in a day that always stimulates their eager young mind and body to yearn for more study and play. It is not surprising why these children needs proper nourishment to cope with the big demands of their growing years and to keep them going and going in every action that would take place every minute of their early stage of life.

Nutrition is a general term that refers to the process by which animals and plants take in and utilize essential elements found in food. Sadly, much of the food consumed today is low on the essential compounds needed for healthy bodies and minds.

While the tips and tricks that your friends offer you can be incredibly helpful, remember that you don't have the same life as them. If something they do just won't fit into your life, don't kill yourself trying to make it work. Instead, find another healthy alternative, and apply that to your eating regimes instead.

Hey there apple crisp lovers, this can be another apple crisp recipe which is rapid and quick to produce and bake. Best apples for this recipe are Granny Smith, but you may get away with some other apples that are appropriate for cooking. Another ingredient which can be adjusted to your taste is water. If you'd like your apple crisp to be a bit more moist you can add 1/2 cup of water instead of 1/4 and vice versa - if you prefer your apple crisp to be drier (we like it dry), you could eliminate the water entirely. And for the final twist for this recipe - you could add some ground pecan nuts or nutmeg into the mix.

Make this dessert even more attractive and indulgent by topping it with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. You can prepare the caramel sauce a week ahead and store it in the refrigerator. It will keep for two weeks. If cooking with hot sugar makes you nervous, use store-bought caramel topping but I suggest you do your caramelizing so you will appreciate the yields of your effort.
