When is my Steak Done?:

The most critical point when preparing steak is when you remove it from the heat source---it keeps on cooking internally for a few minutes.
Use an instant-read thermometer to test---
135º is rare;
145º is medium rare;
155º is medium

Tips and Hints

To neutralize burnt food odors in the house...mix 1/2 cup whole cloves with 2 cups water in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Simmer cloves for 15-30 minutes. The house smells wonderful and the burnt odor is gone.

When I make pancakes we always have leftovers so I freeze them and when a recipe such as meatballs or meatloaf calls for bread crumbs I substitute pancake crumbs.

Instantly core a head of iceberg lettuce by slamming it down on a cutting board.

Hold cherry tomatoes between two plastic lids to slice them all at once.

Coat your cheese grater with nonstick spray for clean, easy shredding.

Peel lots of boiled eggs at once by shaking them around in the pot.
