Any help in my kitchen is accepted with open arms. I like to cook, but I don't think I will be featured on the Food Network anytime soon. Or, ever in my life really. But I like to experiment with recipes, and you can see from recipes I have posted on my blog, they are not, by any means, professional looking. Hence, the reason why I did not start a food blog.
I found a bunch of Old wives tales that I put together. Through my research it seems as though a lot of these tips actually do work. I think a lot of them are great, and I can't wait to try some of them. But keep in mind, they are tales, so some of them might not work out. Like the one about using left over wine ice cubes for soups? Who has left over wine? I guess that could just be my kitchen and part of my recipe for cooking. Step 1: Open wine bottle. Step 2: Pour into glass. Step 3: Drink. Step 4: Start cooking.
Enjoy these tips. I think they are a fun read.
