3 Interesting Beginner's Cooking Tips

Did you know....

1. that a squash is really a fruit because the seeds are inside? But we still consider it a vegetable.

2. that pesto can be frozen in an ice cube tray, then put into a clear plastic baggie and kept in your freezer until you are ready to use it? To serve it, simply pop it into a pan, add a little wine, broth and cook.

3. that you should cut herbs with a scissors so the leaves do not get bruised?

This is just a small snapshot of all the many tips and important information about side dishes, salsas, chutneys, fruit, vegetables and appetizers that are available in my book, In Addition... to the Entrée.

On your way home from work or play, stop at the grocery store and pick up a pre-cooked entrée, what should I make for a side dishes?

May your side dish always be in the spotlight,
