Quick & Easy Kitchen and Home Tips

No Lumpy Sauces:  When you need to add flour to a sauce, mix the flour with water (or broth) in a small cup first. Stir with a fork to break up lumps before adding it to your sauce.

EZ Marinade Tip:  Defrost your frozen steaks or other meats in the refrigerator the night before.  Add garlic, herbs and spices or a marinade mix for extra flavor.  If you use a packaged marinade don’t add extra salt.  Your steak is defrosted and ready for the grill when you get home from work!

Quickie Food Smarts:  Check those food labels.  “Certified Organic” is a legally defined term.  Growers and manufacturers who use this word on their packaging must have met Federal guidelines and have a certificate to make this claim. The word ‘Natural’ isn’t a legal term and just means the marketing department liked how it looked on the packaging.
