Drying Herbs In The Microwave
I tried this with parsley and works like a charm – so time saving since I did not have to to and let dry! Now I know it works I will get the rest of this done so we will have our cabinet filled with enough parsley for the year! Now on to find a neat way to store it all – we had used old milk containers which work out ok but as we used the herbs we were always stuck with these 1/2 gallon milk containers that were partially filled.
Foods To Eat That Are Good For Your Health
These are some simple foods that you can incorporate into your diet to help with things like breast cancer, heart disease, wrinkles, cancer and cholesterol. Some you already probably incorporate into your diet already but it is important to understand that the more raw and less cooked you eat them in is the healthiest for you and will help with the above conditions better. For instance, raw vegetables are best – but if you must cook steaming is the best way to cook, followed by blanching, boiling and placing into foil and baking are the best options. Nuts should never be purchased in snack isle or near registers – only get them in the baking isle. These can be found cooked or raw (some nuts are not edible in raw form) but they will not have added sodium and are much healthier for you. One final note is about frozen berries and vegetables – there is not a lot of difference in frozen berries and vegetables because mostly they are flash frozen which will allow them to retain their good properties. Just remember to look for things like added sugar or sodium (like that bag of frozen corn saturated with butter and salt that you throw into a microwave and serve right from the bag).
Melting Snowman Sugar Cookies
How cool and how SIMPLE! Do we love it? YES!
Make your favorite sugar cookie recipe. Make your favorite sugar cookie icing recipe when cookies are cooled and make a “puddle” that looks like the snowman has already melted. While the icing is still wet, stick a marshmallow to one side. Let icing dry. Use a red/orange candy sprinkle for the nose and black icing to make eyes, mouth and arms. Use blue icing for the scarf (or change this color up) and green for buttons (or change this color up as well).
I told you it was simple – and it looks so cool you people will think you took a lot of time to create your masterpieces.
