Cooking Tips, Tricks and Hints

Here you will find tons of cooking tips, tricks and hints to make your recipes easier and tastier.

With all of the recipes I add, I try to give you as much detail in the recipe itself, so you can make it without additional help, but sometimes I take it for granted that you know things you may not. As I've been working on some of my Gram's recipes, I've found that they aren't always explained well. So this section is for you. As I think of things you may need to know to create the best comfort food ever, I'll post it here.

I will also post all the tricks I know on how to fix those dish that somehow didn't turn out the way they should have--like too much salt. AND, if you're out of a recipe ingredient, check out the food substitutions page, because I have found a lot of ways to substitute, rather than run to the store to get what I need.
