Cooking Tool Thursday: Citrus Juicer

Lemons and limes are a pantry staple.  They are fairly inexpensive, loaded with vitamin C, and brighten almost any dish, baked good or adult beverage. That means, a good quality citrus juicer is something you simply must not live without.  I prefer this style of juicer because it squeezes every last drop of juice out …

Cooking Tip Tuesday: Rest your meat

You've probably heard, "let your meat rest" before slicing but, do you actually do it?  It's hard when you're hungry and that juicy piece of meat is calling to you, "Eat me!  Eat me nowwww!".  OK, maybe meat doesn't talk BUT, if it could, it would cry, "Let me rest.  Just for 10 minutes.  You …
