I NEED A GOOD CHILLED SOUP. SUGGESTIONS?
In addition to the classic Gazpacho, there’s a host of chilled soups – Sweet Pea with Mint, Cucumber Avocado, Curried Zucchini, and Summer Borscht with Tzatziki to name a few.
I HAVE SOME COCONUT THAT’S TURNED DRY AND HARD. SHOULD I TOSS IT?
No. Put it in a strainer over a steaming pot of water for a few minutes to rehydrate it.
HOW MUCH WATER SHOULD I USE TO COOK QUINOA?
This high-protein substitute for pasta and rice comes in white (golden), red or black varieties. Use a ratio of 1 part quinoa to 2 parts water. Great with curry, grilled vegetables or braised meat.
PUT THESE ON YOUR SHOPPING LIST
For most cooking and baking, regular ingredients are fine. There are a few items worth splurging on however. These include quality baking chocolate, extra virgin olive oil, maple syrup, pure vanilla, prosciutto and cheese. The difference in taste is remarkable.
MAKE IT FRESH
For spring’s quick and easy meals, buy the freshest in-season fruits and vegetables you can find. We get in fresh 100% organic produce three times a week!
A COOK’S BEST FRIEND
If you buy only one kitchen tool this month, make it a good knife. Experts recommend knives that weigh at least 7 ounces or more. After that, what matters most is how well it fits your hand. Most cooks find molded plastic handles most comfortable.
