Cooking A very important part of any journey is knowing where you are going and the best way to get there. If you plan and prepare before you start to cook, you should reach mealtime with foods to write home about! 1. Read the entire recipe from start to finish and be sure you understand the process involved. Check that you have all the equipment you will need before you begin. 2. Check the ingredient list and be sure you have everything and in the amounts required. Keep cooking sprays
six-serving package when a four-serving package is listed in the ingredients, or you use instant when cook-and-serve is required, you won’t get the right result. 8. Clean up as you go. It is much easier to wash a few items at a time than to face a whole counter of dirty dishes later. The same is true for spills on the counter or floor. 9. Be careful about doubling or halving a recipe. Though many recipes can be altered successfully to serve more or fewer people, many cannot. This is especially
in mushroom soup, milk, and Cheddar cheese. Continue cooking until cheese starts to melt, stirring often. Add peas, carrots, and mushrooms. Mix well to combine. Lower heat and simmer for 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. HINT: Thaw peas by rinsing in a colander under hot water for 1 minute.
