Kitchen Tips I Use Religiously

KITCHEN TIPS I USE RELIGIOUSLY 1. When shopping, choosing heavy-for-their-size lemons and limes. 2. Rolling lemons and limes on the countertop before using (using arm muscle to break apart the inside to release more juice). 3. Revering the fragility/rancidity of oils (storing in cool, dark places without light exposure; opening bottle only when necessary and not very often; keeping oil/butters contaminate-free by keeping fingers out of it and using a clean wooden spatula to extract). 4.

Stage 1 Route

I must admit that Stage 1 research may have caused some stress. There was so much written from so many different sources that said this was the most difficult section.
