Diva Tasting: Hot Tips from the Grandmothers…

  • Instead of frying eggs in olive oil, give them a serious flavor boost by frying them in tablespoon of pesto.”
  • The trick to life-changing mashed potato gravy: the spice packet from your instant dry onion soup mix. Make my gravy with butter, flour, water and a packet of dry onion soup mix.
  • Put extra yolks in my scrambled eggs. It makes them so much more decadent. So, for example, if making eggs for two people, use four whole eggs and two additional egg yolks. Save the whites for scrambled egg whites or baking needs.
  • When making something with ground taco meat, mix in a chopped chipotle pepper in adobo sauce. It gives the meat a smoky heat that really elevates the flavor.
  • Try this trick from culinary schools and now I swear by it. If you’re making something savory and it just seems like it needs something but you’re not sure what, add a bit of mustard. Yellow mustard or Dijon always does Works.
  • Add a bit of brown sugar or a drizzle of maple syrup to pretty much any savory stews, soups, sauces, salad dressings, chilies, and marinades. It helps cut those sour, acidity, bitter flavors and adds another level of deliciousness.
