Simple Life Corporation - Quick
and Clever Kitchen Tips:
From our new cookbook - CLEVER
AND DELICIOUS COOKING
Quick Tip: Is your freezer too
full? Make one night a week "freezer night." This is the night that you take
something from the freezer--either as an ingredient or part of a meal, or
by choosing one of the long since unidentifiable, plastic-encased, frozen
globs from the back of the freezer shelf and finally throwing it away. In
either case, something gets removed from the freezer on at least a weekly
Quick Tip: When using a recipe
that calls for shredded cheese, you can safely substitute low or no-fat versions
if the recipe does not call for the cheese to be melted or otherwise cooked
in the dish. Melted no-fat cheese has a much different consistency than regular
melted cheese. You will need to experiment with brands and types of low fat
cheese to find good substitutes.
Quick Tip: Save water and time
when draining the dishwater from the sink: Unplug the drain and let the suds
and water drain completely before rinsing the bottom of the sink with clear
water. You won't waste water and time trying to rinse down soap bubbles that
would have gone down the drain on their own.
Quick Tip: If you do not immediately
remove your dish from the oven when the timer buzzes, always reset the timer,
even if for 1-2 minutes. Just make it a habit - you'll save yourself from
forgetting and overcooking the item.
Quick Tip: Save the rigid plastic
trays from frozen microwave dinners and make your own frozen dinners. Vegetables
will need a small amount of liquid for freezing. Meats will need a gravy
or broth to keep from drying out in the freezer.
Quick Tip: Don't throw out
that last bit of old peanut butter. Remove the label and mark with an "unhappy
face" (so there is no chance your kids or spouse will mistake it as edible)
and store it with your cleaning products. It is absolutely the best black
heel mark remover that I have used. Just rub a little on the mark and lightly
scrub it off. Rinse well afterwards, as it does leave a slick spot.
Clever and Delicious
a cookbook for the clever cook
Quick, delicious, and simple
Our NEW cookbook has over 200
tasty recipes and variations that use ingredients from your pantry shelf
and/or leftovers! These are recipes that your family will really enjoy and
eat. Hopefully, you will find one or two recipes that you remember being
a family favorite, or at least several that will become favorites now!
The cookbook is from our philosophy
that learning not to waste your food, your grocery purchases, and your time
will help you in an overall program of learning to save and invest and make
the most use of what you already have! We also strongly believe that eating
at home, around the dinner table with the family is one of the best ways
to strengthen family relationships.
Use our unique Index by Ingredient
to find a recipe for an ingredient that you would like to use, like that
container of sour cream in the fridge or that can of peaches in the pantry.
If you are eating takeout too
often or throwing out too much of your weekly grocery purchases, then we
guarantee that you will save at least the cost of our cookbook or your money
back! We hope this will be an encouraging step toward a savings and investment
program that will eventually lead to a calmer and higher quality of life

We are working on
our 2nd volume of the Clever and Delicious Cooking series. Clever cooks,
we need your recipes! If you have a recipe that you reach for when
you need to use up a certain ingredient, or when there seems to be "nothing
to eat", then we'd like to see your recipe. Our criteria is that the
recipe should be relatively simple, use common ingredients, including leftovers,
and be "real" food - not something a tired spouse or grouchy kid will snarl
We'd also love to hear the
story behind the recipe! If your recipe is the first of it's kind submitted
and we use it in the cookbook, we'll credit your name to the recipe and we'll
send you a free copy of the cookbook when it is
Don't send your only copy
of the recipe - we are unable to return recipes. All submissions become
the property of Simple Life Corp., but we do agree not to use the recipe
without your name credit.
Thank you, clever
