Cook's Tip:
Homemade cottage cheese will remain fresh longer if you wrap it in blotting paper before refrigerating.
Cayenne pepper can add a little fire to recipes. Use less, taste and then add more if you’d like.
If you cook Indian food, you are bound to get turmeric stains on your clothes at one time or another. The good news is they're really easy to take out. Wash the stained clothes/kitchen linen immedeately in cool water and soap. Dry in the sun and the stain will fade to a very pale pink. Wash the article again and the stain will be gone!
