Can't find anything in your fridge to eat?

Image
Have you ever opened up your fridge and though you have many items, not have anything that you can eat?  You have milk but done have cereal, you have bread but don't have cheese, have carrots but don't have lettuce... and the list goes on and on... I am sure that everyone hates when this happens. Its frustrating.

Here is a great example on what to do when you encounter this problem. Make a meal out of all the things you do have. I've done it loads of times. Make your rice and just start dicing up everything in your fridge and adding it to the pot. Fry it all together and mix it all into a big mixture.

Trail Mix

Image
Here is a healthy snack. The alternative to those junky cravings, you may have throughout the day. Here is a tip that my husband and I do. At the beginning of each week, we make a big container of our own trail mix.

I don't buy the already made mix from the store because they add a lot of peanuts and raisins and only  a little of the GOOD STUFF like cashews, pistachios, almonds : - )
So what we do is we buy all our favorite nuts and dried fruits separately and then mix it all together in a big container.

To make it easier, I usually separate them into little baggies, this makes it easy to grab when in a rush and such a great option for when you just feel like munching on something. It's healthy...

Another healthy alternative that I used was doing the same thing but with fruits such as grapes, strawberries, oranges. Having them washed and cut up and separated into little baggies, really helps you to choose wisely when you are on the go and need a good option to choose from.

Do you get a white ooze when cooking Salmon?

Image
Does your salmon often look like this when you cook it? Tried baking, frying, poaching it but this stuff keeps coming out?

Quick tip: when cooking salmon it is common for a white sort of cream to come oozing out all around the fish. Though it does not affect the taste. It can be found to be annoying and not pretty. But I found the trick to solving this problem, it happens because salmon is an oily fish, there are many oils within the fish itself. When cooking all of these oils come out in the form of this white ooze, normally from my own experience, when this happens the fish tends to become dry. Because now all of that moisture and oils meant to keep the fish succulent and juicy was just taken out.

I found a solution to this problem. To keep all the oils locked in, you need to dry out the surface of the fish.  Before seasoning drizzle a little bit of vinegar on the fish and rub it in well. Continue your seasoning process. You will see that your problem will be resolved.

Pan fried Salmon

Salmon is such a tasty fish with so many healthy qualities. Cooking it in multiple ways really changes us the flavor and provides such a joy to the pallet. I've made everything from garlic salmon to honey glazed salmon; never was I dissatisfied.

Turkey leftover sandwich

Image
Who says that turkey is only for Thanksgiving day...  I make turkey more than just once a year. Many times I've cooked it on regular days, just because...
Making a whole big turkey lasts a long time. The meat supply seems endless. Because of this, people often run out of ideas on what other recipes they can make, once they get tired of eating it as is. Here is an option of what else you can do when you are tired of eating plain ol' turkey.
Here I made a sandwich. I layered it with chunks of turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce and I placed it in the oven under 350F /165C for about 5 minutes. Very delicious, especially when served warm. The cranberry sauce softens and melts in your mouth as you bite through all the layers.
Extremely good. You should try it.
