The Cooking Mom's Secrets and Tips

How Much Sugar?

When using granulated sugar, keep in mind that one pound sugar 
is the equivalent to 2 cups.

Fluffy Pancakes

Pancakes are lighter and fluffier when you substitute club soda 
for milk in the batter.

Separate Your Cookies

Always store different types 
of cookies in separate containers so they’ll keep their original 
flavor and texture.

Grocery Bags are Better

Drain deep fried foods on brown paper grocery bags as opposed to 
paper towels to retain crispness.

Warm Plates

Whenever possible, warm your dinner plates slightly in the oven 
before serving so the meal stays a little bit hotter.

Flour Weights

When using all-purpose flour, keep in mind that one pound of flour 
is the equivalent to 4 cups.

Thinly Sliced Steaks

To slice meat into thin strips partially freeze and it will slice easily.

Vinegar Magic

Use a drop of white vinegar to clean eyeglasses.

Juicier Chicken

Want juicier chicken? Marinade it in buttermilk for up to 24 hours to tenderize.

Cool Cookie Dough

If your cookies are spreading too much, try 
refrigerating the dough for a couple of hours before baking.

Colorful Atrichokes

Add a small amount of lemon juice to the artichoke cooking 
water to retain the color of the artichoke.

Keep Pesto Cool

Never heat pesto sauce! The basil will discolor and taste bitter.
