I have a food thermometer, but I accidentally dropped it last week. How do I know it still works?
I am doing some spring cleaning in my food pantry and refrigerator. I found some baby food in the back of my cupboard. What is the difference between a "sell-by" date, "best-if-used by", and "use by" date?
The grass is growing and flower bulbs are beginning to bloom. Everything looks refreshed outdoors. When spring rolls around, many people freshen their homes with some spring cleaning. Kitchens are a good place to begin.
I'm having a graduation party for my daughter, and I'm planning to serve tacos, fresh fruits and veggies with creamy dips, and cupcakes. I will have a buffet line from 4 to 9 p.m. I'm not used to serving a large crowd. Do you have any tips?
You may have noticed that grocery prices are on the rise. You might be tempted to bypass the "healthy foods" and fill your cart with the least-expensive foods you can find.
Fruits and vegetables provide a wide range of essential vitamins, minerals and fiber. They are naturally low in calories. Eating more fruits and vegetables can help with weight management and can help reduce your risk of cancer and heart disease.
I went to a nutrition class and found out I should try to eat at least 4½ cups of fruits and vegetables a day. I usually only have a glass of fruit juice and some carrot sticks with my sandwich at lunch and corn for dinner. I have about 2 cups of fruits and vegetables per day. I could use some ideas!
These days, many of us get more salt than we need, and that’s not good for our hearts. Salt is made up of sodium and chloride. Diets with too much sodium can increase your risk of getting high blood pressure.
I just found out I have high blood pressure. My doctor said I need to cut back on my sodium. Do you have any ideas?
I have heard that sea salt and kosher salt contain less sodium then table salt. Is that true?
