100 Greatest Cooking Tips

A very useful list from Food Network.... 100 GREATEST COOKING TIPS (OF ALL TIMES!) These are some really great tips. A few that were new to me, and I will definitely try:

* For an easy weeknight meal, save and freeze leftover sauces from previous meals in ice cube trays. The cubes can be reheated in a sauté pan when you need a quick sauce. -David Burke

* Don't overcrowd the pan when you're sautéing — it'll make your food steam instead. -Ryan Poli

*Season all of your food from start to finish. Seasoning in stages brings the most out of your ingredients and gives you the most flavor. -Jose Garces

* When making mashed potatoes, after you drain the potatoes, return them to the hot pan, cover tightly and let steam for 5 minutes. This allows the potatoes to dry out so they'll mash to a beautiful texture and soak up the butter and cream more easily. -Wolfgang Puck
