Popcorn? Really?

As I was doing research for purchasing my grain mill, I read all sorts of “don’t do’s.” One of them was don’t try to grind anything that was too hard, including popcorn. But, when I got my grain mill (a NutriMill) the booklet that came with the machine said, “Popcorn will make the best cornmeal you’ve ever tasted.”

Roasted Red Peppers

Roasted red peppers are SO good in so many things — salad, pasta, on top of chicken…they have such a sweet and smoky flavor. If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary to do with your leftover Thanksgiving turkey, just toss the meat with some pasta and some roasted red peppers and you have and amazing, healthy meal in no time.

Tip: My “New” Stand Mixer

Try replacing the drawer and cabinet door handles or knobs, and the hinges with a nice looking but inexpensive set that will accent the look of the room.

For around $20, you can get a can of countertop treatment which fills in the cuts scratches and dings, and coats the whole counter, making that Formica look better than new in one of 40 possible modern colors.

Rope LED lighting is inexpensive and provides a warm, soft glow under the counter.

Maybe hubby can paint mis-matched appliances to match your other appliances.

Tip: Chopping Onions

My favorite onion dicer. It dices onion, peppers, garlic, pickles — almost anything except carrots! — in a small dice or a large dice.
