Cooking Made Easy: Dice a Carrot in Three Easy Steps

No comments:

With my family`s busy schedule, it`s difficult to get good meals on the table during the week without doing some upfront prep work. So I set aside an hour on Sunday afternoons to prep ingredients for the meals I have planned for the week ahead. 

A couple weeks back, I had Tortellini Kale Soup, Sloppy Joe Sandwiches and a Vegetable Stir Fry on my meal plan, so I diced a carrot for the soup, cooked ground meat for the sandwiches, and whisked together a sauce for the stir fry.

How to Pan Fry Fish Fillets
For some reason I fall into the trap of associating cooking fish with being overly complex. I believe my reality about cooking fish has been distorted by watching too many chefs prepare it on cooking shows.

Here are the steps I used to pan fry frozen sole fillets earlier this week.
