I hope everyone is well and enjoying the last of the summer months before fall sets in. I have to say that I am looking forward to cooler weather having had enough h~o~t and humid temperatures. It also brings a desire to cook and bake recipes inside instead of on the barbecue (although, I love grilled foods and can usually grill all year round here in Florida). But still, there is something comforting about trying out new or old tried and true recipes when the weather starts to chill and the fall season sets in.
Summers are reminiscence of back yard barbecues, cool drinks (with or without alcohol) sitting on your patio or deck and enjoying your gardens. For me, fall and winter months are about experimenting with new recipes that can warm the house and add aromas of the foods you are preparing.
I love cooking and found the best recipes and advice come from a website called Food 52. I subscribe to their e-mails which brings me recipes and new items that are listed in their website shop. Today's e-mail brought me simple techniques on how to be a better cook by listing tips that I had forgotten about and in some cases didn't even know about from cooking rice, steaks and pasta to brewing cold coffee. Things that want to make you go humm, I didn't know that!
Enjoy the tips and remember, " to learn something new everyday". Link to article here: Food 52.
