Butter at room temperature

To bring butter or margarine to room temperature quickly, use a grater to shred it into your mixing bowl.

Here are a couple of tips for preparing cheese...
- If you need to grate cheese for a recipe, chill it first. Chill hard cheeses in the freezer for 30 minutes and soft cheeses for 15 to 20 minutes, or until firm to the touch. It will grate much easier for you.

- 4 ounces of block cheese equals one cup shredded or grated.

- Grate any cheese that you plan to add to a recipe, it will melt much more quickly with no clumping.

Don’t boil over
To help keep a pot from boiling over, I like to put a toothpick between the pot and lid. Just be careful to remove the toothpick before you lift the lid to check your food.

Sticky situation
Before measuring ingredients such as honey and corn syrup, lightly coat the measuring spoon or cup with vegetable oil. This also works great if you have to measure peanut butter.

Too salty?
If the food you are cooking comes out too salty, add a little lemon zest. It will help balance out the flavor.
