Frozen Cubes of Buttermilk

From time to time, I’ll use a recipe that calls for a small amount of buttermilk. I buy a quart at a time and freeze it into ice cubes and keep them frozen until needed. In my ice cube trays, eight ice cubes equal one cup, although your mileage may vary. Naomi


Be Famous for Something Cheap

Don’t become famous for something expensive. Become famous for something cheap! A cheesecake can cost in the $10 range to make for a potluck or other get-together.

When she retrieved them the next day they were beautifully frozen without any sticking together, all loose in the sack! I now freeze […]

I always keep two plastic bags in my freezer, one for vegetable scraps and the other for chicken bones. When the bags are full, I get out my metal pasta strainer. Next, I dump out all of the  bones and scraps from both bags into the strainer and put the strainer in the soup pot. […]
