Basic Cooking Tips
- Take the time to actually read recipes through before you begin
- If you’re cooking for guests never try a new recipe and a new ingredient at the same time
- Cook pasta 1 minute less than the package instructions and cook it the rest of the way in the pan with sauce
- Instead of placing a chicken on a roasting rack, cut thick slices of onion, put them in an oiled pan, then place the chicken on top. The onion will absorb the chicken juices. After roasting, let the chicken rest while you make a sauce with the onions by adding a little stock or water to the pan and cooking it for about 3 minutes on high heat.
