How to Chop Onions

How to Chop Onions

Onions add such great depth of flavor to so many dishes. I use them constantly when I cook. I’ve noticed though that many people do not know how to chop onions. Chopping onions is an important cooking skill to know because it is used often in recipes. Even if you think you do not like onions, most of the time it is a texture thing for people, when you learn how to chop an onion you can really get rid of the texture issue and enjoy the flavor it brings to your recipes. When I first got married and started … Continue Reading →

February 18 is National Drink Wine Day – Cheers! I wanted to share this day and the infographic for those of you especially who feel intimidated at times by the wine connoisseurs.

Steak with Garlic Shrimp Cream Sauce Recipe

Steak with Garlic Shrimp Cream Sauce Recipe

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and I cooked dinner for Hubby and I. Many go out to eat on Valentine’s Day but I prefer to stay at home. I can cook, even a bit fancier meal, for less than it costs to go out and we don’t have all the crowds and waiting in line as if we go out. Hubby is a meat and potatoes kind of guy so that was my focus for the meal this year. I decided to make filet mignon with garlic shrimp cream sauce along with roasted garlic mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus. Bragging on … Continue Reading →

How to Say I Love You Around the World

How to Say I Love You Around the World

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner so for this week’s infographic I thought it would be fun for us to learn to say “I Love You” in different languages from around the world. Impress your Valentine this February 14 by saying I Love You in all sort of different languages. Another idea that this infographic might help you with would be taking one (or more) of the languages and maybe making a meal with foods from that culture. This is great for adults, but also if you are celebrating Valentine’s Day with the kids. Are you ready for Valentine’s … Continue Reading →

Cold and Flu Prevention Tips

(Family Features) Being sick isn’t fun, but missing out on family vacations or parties for the big game because you are sick is even worse.

Additionally, Clorox partnered with epidemiologist Dr. Stephen Morse, a professor at Columbia University, to share some basics about the flu virus. What is the Flu Virus?

Safety Tips for Buying/Selling Locally Online

Safety Tips for Buying/Selling Locally Online

Do you regularly buy or sell items online where you meet up with people locally to make the exchange? Common places to find transactions are Craigslist, Letgo, etc. You can post items for sale or find items to buy and they generally are for local pickup and delivery. While most of these transactions present no problems at all, sadly, there have been some very serious crimes committed with some throughout the country. If you are like me, you like to think the best of everyone, but sometimes we all need to take some safety precautions. Safety Tips for Buying or … Continue Reading →
