Recycled Christmas Card 2

  One of the most handy kitchen tools I use is a silicone trivet.  I actually got mine from Avon a long time ago when I used to sell it, but you can get them online and probably at various stores as well.  They are very inexpensive.  This is what mine looks like:     There are lots of uses for these things!  It’s one of those “I don’t know how I lived without it before”, items for me.  There are some obvious uses for a silicone trivet, such as : a trivet (well duh!) haha.  Great for keeping near the stove or on the table to set hot dishes and pots on A hot pad- you can use these in lieu of an oven mitt to grip the handles … Continue Reading

How to Clean/Care for Your Cast Iron Cookware

  In a previous post, I discussed what’s cool (and healthy) about cooking with Cast Iron.  If you want to catch up and check that article out just click on this title: “Tip of the Week-Cooking with Cast Iron & Creative Grilled Cheese Ideas”. This week’s tip is a follow up on how to take care of your cast iron.  Let’s talk first about Cleaning.     Washing Your Cookware: Some people will tell you to never use soap to clean your cast iron.  It depends on what I am cooking as to if I use soap or not.  If I am making something like grilled cheese for example, I don’t use soap.  With grilled cheese you can actually just wipe out the pan with a napkin when done (if … Continue Reading

Tip of the Week- Cooking w/Cast Iron & Creative Grilled Cheese Ideas

evenly browned and crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside!

Today I am inspired by cast iron skillets and grilled cheese sandwiches (Doesn’t take much to excite me, huh :)  ) because in my opinion they just make the best grilled cheese!   On a side note , I also love making breakfast foods in cast iron skillets.  Why cast iron?  I find that cast iron tends to get things just the right crispness on the outside , but yet soft inside.   My pancakes and omelets come out perfectly golden brown, and the bacon is more crispy.  Why is this?  It is because cast iron is an even conductor of heat (meaning stuff gets evenly browned).   What about saving money?  They also save you money because these pans can last your whole lifetime!  In fact, many people have passed … Continue Reading

A couple of months ago my cell phone fell in the bathtub.  Don’t ask how- it’s really quite stupid.  I am not the only one who has had this “O crap!” moment.  I have friends who have dropped their phones in toilets, sinks and who knows what else ( I am thinking swimming pools this time of year).  Aside from cell phones being expensive, no one wants to lose their contacts or other important phone stuff that they really need.  There IS a way to fix waterlogged cell phones though, so don’t worry just yet and give this a try:   First you will want to take your phone out of the water source as quickly as possible (I am not sure how well this method works with phones that … Continue Reading
