To reduce the calories and fat of mashed potatoes, and to avoid sacrificing taste or texture, replace some potatoes with the same amount of cauliflower. Cauliflower’s subtle flavors blend in with the potatoes and other ingredients easily. It also mimics the texture and color of the potatoes almost perfectly letting you up your vegetable intake, and drop the calories, all the while giving the same delicious potato experience we all know and love.

Oysters are versatile. You can prepare oysters in other ways than just raw with some drizzled lemon juice. Place oysters that have already been opened in a broiler pan. Cover them with a small amount of cream. Next, give them a healthy sprinkling of freshly-cracked black pepper, some Parmesan cheese, maybe a little bit of parsley, and let them broil until they’re lightly browned and bubbling. Another option is to saute the oysters. This is accomplished by using a light layer of seasoned flower and putting them inside a dish of frying butter for only a few minutes. You can bake oysters while they are still in their shells. Put them in a dish made for casseroles, and put a little of butter with fresh breadcrumbs on top of each; preheat oven to 425 degrees, and bake for 4 to 5 minutes. Whenever the juices and butter are bubbling hot, you can then serve it alongside a toasted baguette. Leaving the bone in a roast can help shorten the cooking time. The bone will retain the heat and make the meat cook faster from the inside. After the roast is cooked, just slice around the bone to serve.

Measure the amount of cooking oil you use! If you want to get rid of some of the fat in your recipe make sure to measure how much you’re using instead of just pouring it into the pan. Measuring the oil will let you closely examine how much oil you are using.

Are you going to cook with fresh basil? If you want to keep it fresh, first place it in a glass. Next, ensure the stems are covered with water. This will allow it to stay fresh for weeks! If you occasionally change its water, it will sprout roots. Encourage new growth by occasionally pinching back or trimming your basil. Add some zing to your stews, soups, and mashed potatoes by using stock instead of water. Try using boullion cubes and water if you do not have chicken stock. Your food will have the right balance of moisture but with a fuller underlying flavor.
