Strawberry Saver

I love strawberries and loved reading a tip about how to keep them from going bad so quickly—separating them from one another. That’s easier said than done in a full fridge. But, I came up with the perfect solution: egg cartons! Each berry has its own little compartment so they stay fresh much longer! Rosemary […]


Cheaper Veggie Noodles

I love using spiralized vegetables in place of noodles in recipes. Usually, I buy the frozen zucchini noodles (sometimes called “zoodles”), but recently my store stopped selling them! Determined to find a way to continue using veggies as noodles, I scoured the Internet. To my surprise, I discovered I didn’t need to go out and […]

Bone Up on Butchering

I like skinless, boneless chicken thighs, which are much more expensive than thighs with the skin and bone. I learned how to debone the thighs many years ago from a women’s magazine. Today, it is much easier to learn from YouTube videos (here is a great one), and it is quick work. Your only investment […]
