Tip of the Day
Tip of the Day:
The following tip comes from Chef AJ. She saves her spice bottles when they are empty and reuses them.
She says that research shows that most people don't eat 30 distinct and different meals each month, but rather repeat their favorite meals every week.
Chef AJ says her Red Lentil Chili is no exception. Instead of measuring out all 7 of the spices everytime she goes to make it, she uses several empty spice bottles and makes them all at the same time. Then all she has to do is grab one and put them in her pressure cooker with the rest of the ingredients.
I have always done this with taco seasoning mix that I make up, although I just place them into small bowls. I make about 10 at a time and it is a big time saver, but now I'm going to start saving my spice bottles for this purpose. :)
Simply live by the rule of not spending money you don't have.
