    To use up leftover pasta —

    spray a pyrex dish with cooking spray and then place in leftover pasta with the meat sauce (marinara) mixed in. Once dish is completely cool – wrap with saran wrap and then foil. Can be stored in freezer for up to 2 months.

    The day before you use it – just pop into fridge to defrost. Cook at 350 for 30-45 minutes until hot – top with cheese and let the cheese melt for a few more minutes.

    Easy way to use up leftover pasta.

    There has been a new craze in my house, and that’s cutting the sugar! But what we used to use, Agave Nectar, I’ve just discovered is so processed, it’s not the greatest! I don’t like molasses, I am eh on honey, and forget about using fake sugar (ahem, Splenda, ew), so what to use?!?!
    Xylitol is a sugar alcohol sweetener used as a naturally occurring sugar substitute. It is found in the fibers of many fruits and vegetables, including various berries, corn husks, oats, and mushrooms. Xylitol is roughly as sweet as sucrose with only two-thirds the food energy.
    One teaspoon of xylitol contains 9.6 calories, as compared to one teaspoon of sugar, which has 15 calories. Xylitol has virtually no aftertaste (unlike fake sugar, ahem, Splenda). It also has a very low glycemic index of 13 (glucose has a GI of 100).
    Possessing approximately 40% less food energy, xylitol is a low-calorie alternative to table sugar. Absorbed more slowly than sugar, it does not contribute to high blood sugar levels or the resulting hyperglycemia caused by insufficient insulin response.
    And BONUS!!! Xylitol-based products are allowed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to make the medical claim that they do not promote dental cavities.

    While it is a bit more expensive than what people expect for sugar, it is worth it to try. It’s great for baking and I’m not sure I’ll use sugar again!

    Next time you buy a can of tomato paste, take what you aren’t using for the recipe, scoop them out in tbsp portions on an inside out freezer bag, and let set in the freezer for 2 hours.

    After it sets, turn the bag right-side in, with the tbsp portions inside, seal the bag and freeze. Take the portions out as you need them. 🙂

    I’ve learned how to make perfectly delicious scrambled eggs. First you heat your pan to med. low. Then you coat it nicely with oil (I usually use coconut oil). Then you beat the eggs in a separate bowl, add salt and pepper to taste. Once the pan is warm/hot add the eggs. For great, moist eggs you need to cook them low and slow. Make sure you take them off the heat while they still have a little shine… so yummy!

    We don’t have a dishwasher, so when I have to measure something sticky like peanut butter or honey for a recipe, I spray the inside of the measuring cup with a little cooking spray first. It makes it a lot easier to clean!

    When cooking chicken ive found that if you dont havce the time or patience for it to cook in its regular chicken breast form you can use plastic wrap and a rolling pin ad pound it down to be about a half of an inch thick and throw it in a frying pan with about a tsp or so of olive oil and it works out great!

    Fresh Lemon Juice – always! When lemons go on sale at my grocery store or they hit a good price at Sam’s, I buy a ton and squeeze them all at once. Strain and then pour into ice cube trays and freeze. Thaw one at a time, as needed. Tastes so much better than the bottled stuff and a snap to have on hand!

    I used to buy Paraffin Wax when I wanted to make dipping chocolate but just this year I learned that you can use a few tablespoons of Crisco shortening instead. In my mind, that is MUCH better than eating wax. The chocolate still works out great for dipping cookies, making cake balls, truffles, or dipping fruit. SO glad I learned this trick.

    One of the best things is to juice that citrus you get this time of year, freeze it in ice cube trays then you can have fresh lemonade on those hot summer afternoons!
