Hi Everyone, You can enrich your meals, reduce salt, and save money by making and using your own homemade stock. Stock is a flavoured cooking liquid made from meat, bones, seafood, vegetables, herbs and spices cooked in water for a period of time to extract the flavour from the ingredients used.

Hi Everyone, It is hard to resist ordering French Fries when a menu lists hand-cut fries, or house fries. For me, it conjures images of my mom standing at the stove, her lone, prized, non-stick pan filled with a little more than an inch of oil, and thick, hand-cut sticks of potatoes surrounded by bubbles from the hot oil.

Hi Everyone, There is something indescribable about the combination of freshly grated coconuts, flour, sugar, a little butter, ground cinnamon, grated nutmeg and a few drops of essence, all brought together by milk or water.
