1. Handling fruit
•  Many fruits are sprayed with pesticides and contain dirt. 
•  Before eating fruits not enclosed in a peel, rinse them off.

2. Cooking vegetables
•  Boil certain vegetables such as carrots, zucchini and squash to soften them before frying them. 
•  Use just enough oil to cover the bottom of the skillet.

3. Cooking meat 
If you choose to fry meats, cook them in grease or vegetable oil on both sides with enough oil to cover half of the meat.
Reduce cooking time by having your oil hot before putting meat into the skillet. 
•  Generally fry chicken for 9 minutes on each side then simmer it for two minutes on each side with a lid covering the skillet to soften the meat; however, you should first cook all pieces for 11-12 minutes on each side if not enough of their redness disappears by the time the 9th minute arrives. 
•  Prior to cooking, pork chops and steak should be covered in store-bought marinade.
To tenderize steak, beat each side with a cooking mallet - do this step before doing a marinade.
•  Broil steak, pork chops and fish on each side to save time, enhance taste and protect your health - eight minutes total for pork chops, 18 - 20 minutes total for steak. 
•  Use coating for chicken and fish for better taste.

4. Preparing meat to freeze 
•  It helps to measure the amount of foods such as ground beef you're putting in a plastic freezer bag before freezing it. 
•  If your package of beef weighs five pounds, split it in half and put each half into separate bags with 2.5 lbs written on both of them.  

5. Thawing out meat
•  Meat that has bone in it generally takes longer to thaw. 
•  Chicken and steak are perfect examples of this with beef being an exception even though it has no bone. 
•  If you must keep these meats on the kitchen counter or sink instead of the refrigerator for a few hours, soak them in cold water after the first hour or so. 

6. Dicing and chopping onions and other items
•  If you must cut something such as an onion into small pieces, first cut it into big slices then mash those slices with a large, sharp knife, working your way all around your pile with the blade tip down. 

7. Making sure the meat you buy will be smooth, not tough
•  Choose marbled steaks and ribs. 
•  The more marble, or white stuff, the meat has, the less tough it's likely to be. 

•  You didn't really think you were done, did you? 
•  Now that you've come this far, top it off with my e-book or CD located to the right or the culinary enhancers below that put the cherry on top of your eating/cooking pleasure. 
•  Do it now.

About me


As required by FTC, I reveal that I make money through ads displayed. Links to retail affiliate items I provide originate from Viglink. Before I begin running any new banner ad from CJ, I vet the advertiser's website. 

The way you take in food should be done the right way. Preparing, cooking and storing your food in an ideal way will take your culinary pleasure a long way. 

By being required to begin cooking dinner for the household soon after the 2008 presidential election, I learned to cook various foods and use certain techniques in some cases for more efficiency. Consequently, I've come to enjoy cooking. 

I created this site based on my personal cooking and eating experience. Eating is one of life's best pleasures. You should make the most of this pleasure by making your food taste better, handling your food safely and getting the nutrients you need. 

How can you enhance your culinary experience? Seven tips to prepare and cook food are discussed on homepage.

How Pick Your Price Program Works/Purchase Terms

- Terms can be tweaked anytime for clarity -

My goal is to provide superior customer service while bending over backwards to serve you well. You'll enjoy the Pick Your Price program which lets you choose what to pay for the e-book I directly sell here - you'll discover this as you scroll down any page. In order to be fair to everyone, the policies below apply to all customers with almost no exceptions*.  

*In order to establish trust, I'm making it so that if you're enduring dire circumstances such as a death in the family, I can grant you a break on the policies below without seeking proof. I generally send two emails of importance after a purchase (more information throughout this page).

Ultimately, it's up to you to quickly tell me your status. If you wait more than 48 hours after that second email, I can't guarantee you'll get a break where a refund takes priority over anything else. A rebate is still available at anytime after waiting too long in the case of hardship.

How this all works introduction (Part 1): I'll send a purchase confirmation notice in which I acknowledge your purchase, let you know your order is being processed and tell you whatever, if anything else, you should know. A satisfaction follow-up email where I ask about your satisfaction once I've completed your order then delivered it should come within a few days at the most.

How this all works introduction (Part 2): Please be aware you may avoid further contact by using my email address listed above in the site header to request a refund, should you immediately change your mind upon completing purchase. Unless I see something unusual or suspect you've committed fraud (which I don't foresee), I'll automatically issue a refund you're entitled to per these terms - more information on refunds and rebates is below. 

Communication and response are key. I'll send just enough emails to process your order and keep you updated until service is delivered whenever necessary. Reading my emails and having dialogue will make it easier to give you any refund/rebate you may want.   

If you end up not getting that consolation reimbursement because you didn't communicate with me, don't blame me. For the purpose of learning how to improve my items and service, I may ask what went wrong anytime I issue remittance. Refusing to respond to this question will have no bearing on getting any refund/rebate you're entitled to in accordance with these policies.

To save both of us time in the event you want the e-book over the CD, please leave a note saying you want the cookbook as you pay or immediately notify me of this by email after completing purchase. If you don't let me know about this and I can't get a response from you by email within a day, I'll simply send you all of my how-to books (typing, tennis, study, job hunt and cooking tips combination) in one email.

Want a refund for my e-book? Providing an e-book is like a service and returning my e-book has no value to me. However, I'll grant a refund if you express dissatisfaction within 7 days after I send satisfaction follow-up notice. If you do this after that, I may give you a rebate mainly based on how much you paid for the book and not exceeding 50 % in any case. 

Is the listed price for the CD not within your budget? You may email me to haggle the price down to 15 % discount and have me send you a billing invoice for that.

Shipping should begin within one business day. No hidden fees are added in checkout and I cover the shipping costs for all national and international customers. Please return your CD in good condition within 60 postal business days* for guaranteed refund if you aren't satisfied. *Day 1 is the day after the day your item is delivered. Sundays and holidays don't count. 

It's at my discretion to reimburse return shipping fee too or give you a rebate mainly based on the shipping cost and not exceeding 50 % in any case within the next few weeks if you return the item damaged or past my deadline. Regarding this fee: if there's enough money in my PayPal account at the time, I would prefer to immediately take that out to cover this remittance rather than waiting a few weeks when there's more money in there to do so.

The condition of the returned CD may not truly be your fault and I could still give you the benefit of the doubt to grant a rebate if the item comes back with perhaps a scratch or in other condition not to my liking. A destroyed item will result in no rebate.  

Disrespect to me in any correspondence will result in no rebate and no return fee reimbursement. 

Ultimately, I may not have that much money to just dole out from my PayPal account at any time you request or have earned a rebate - this applies to issuing shipping fee reimbursement in the case of a return because the money I would have paid for shipping wouldn't have come out of your payment in the first place. 

I may issue your remittance by check instead of having you wait up to a few weeks to get payment through PayPal. Ultimately, I'll give you that option. In the case of getting a rebate, I'll tell you what it is before securely processing it.

Finally, your information won't be sold. Improvement from my products and service isn't guaranteed. Although it'll likely never happen, I reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for whatever reason and to not grant refunds/rebates to persistently bad customers who have previously been given a final warning.
