A couple tips!

Ok here are some tips I learned from a master chef of 20 pay attention!

1. Spinach is only good for you if you cook it!! Raw means nothing, only cooking releases it's nutrients! Good thing I love cooked spinach!

2. Where are your spices for cooking??
If they are in the cupboard next to the stove, throw them out they are useless!! Keep your spices in a cupboard far from the stove in a cool dark cabinet or pantry!!
I moved mine to the pantry today and will replace them as I need them, because mine are probably dead anyway! They only last 3 months (even less next to the stove) and you should try to use fresh spices and herbs when cooking.

Ok hope you learned something and I hope you can benefit from my class, I am taking another one in August! So stay tuned!

Did you make that cool sculpture in the sand when you finished moving all those spices?

I think they've unleashed your inner beast with the cooking, girl! Glad you're enjoying it so much - and I DID learn, thank you!

Even though I don't cook, I do have spices next to the stove, I guess I'm prepared when/if I ever do cook!
