Tomatoes & Alcohol

"I like to think about the science of cooking. For instance, tomatoes contain flavors soluble in alcohol only. If making a tomato dish, it helps to add a touch of alcohol. Even sliced tomatoes, if spritzed with white wine, the flavor will be heightened. "

Quick Way to Bring Eggs & Margarine to Room Temperature

When baking, most recipes call for eggs and margarine/butter to be at room temperature. If you forgot to leave them out, don't worry – here is a great tip from Reyna Simnegar:

Microwave the margarine for 10-15 seconds and place the eggs in warm water to bring them to room temperature.

Tip for Freezing Baked Goods

When freezing baked goods, make sure that they are thoroughly cooled. Place in a freezer bag and close almost all the way. Insert a straw into the opening and suck out all of the air and then seal. This technique removes any chance of ice crystals forming in the bag, which would change the texture and flavor of your baked product. Almost any food can be frozen this way.

Always Have Fresh Lemon Juice Ready

Can't resist buying a bag of lemons or limes and don't know what to do with the extras - freeze them like ice cubes!  Just juice the lemons/limes and fill an ice cube tray. When you need fresh lemon/lime juice, just pop out the needed cubes and "presto"...fresh lemon/lime juice.

The average ice cube is equivalent to two tablespoons or one ounce. For larger quantities, the following equivalents will help determine how many cubes you need:

2 cubes = 1/4 cup 
4 cubes = 1/2 cup 
6 cubes = 3/4 cup 
8 cubes = 1 cup

Egg-stra Good Tip!

Peeling hard boiled eggs — a tedious task at Passover! A "chef's tip" to make hard-boiled egg-peeling egg-stra easy!

Place the eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water by at least one inch. Add some salt and 1 tablespoon white vinegar (secret ingredient; add more depending on the size of the pot and the number of eggs). Cover pot and bring to a boil. As soon as water boils, remove from heat and let sit, covered, for 15 - 17 minutes. Place cooked eggs into cold water and let sit until cool.  They will be easy to peel and will not be overcooked.  

Fresh eggs are difficult to peel, so plan ahead and purchase eggs at least 5 days in advance.
