Sugar… Ah, Honey Honey! Part III

I have been sharing my “sugar experiment” with you in previous posts, and want to just wrap up by encouraging you to consider the refined sugar content in the food you keep in your house, the food your kids eat and your “go-to” food fixes when you feel tired, depressed, etc. My self imposed “sugar experiment,” which lead to a 35 pound unexpected weight loss and the return of my health, revealed a few things to me that I think apply to almost everyone.

Tip-Me Tuesday ~ Timeless Tips for Your Kitchen

Timeless tips for your kitchen ~ 1. Pull out your mom’s egg beater rather than your big electric mixer for most batters. (I found this one at Williams-Sonoma… I love it!) 2. Another old fashioned kitchen utensil that can’t be replaced is a cast iron skillet. You can sear meat in a cast iron skillet hotter and more evenly You can use your skillet for baking frittatas (crust-less quiche), chicken pot pie, and cornbread in your oven. And of course, you must bake your Pineapple Upside Down cake in it! (Use a very light soap rinse to clean your cast iron skillet, dry and then keep it “cured” and ready to use again by rubbing in a teaspoon of vegetable oil before storing. Then your grandkids will still enjoy using your skillet!)
