A few good tricks can end up saving you a ton of time in the kitchen.
So, take a look at these and put them to use next time you have the opportunity.
I'll continue to add to this list, so if you have a great tip you'd like to contribute, please do.

I'm constantly trying to adjust recipes either up or down.
Because it seems we always have either more or less at the dinner table than the standard recipe for four.
And each time this happens, I rely on my good old Better Homes and Gardens red checked cookbook. It is literally
falling apart I've used it so much.
So, it seemed logical to share these handy conversions with you. I've even added a few.
Cooked Pasta and Rice: Both these items freeze really well. Just make sure they are cool before you store them. Reheating in the microwave makes for a quick fix meal.
Butter: While butter freezes really well, other dairy products such as cream, milk, sour cream and many cheeses do not freeze well.
Pasta Sauces: Next time you have a recipe for pasta sauce, double it. Tomato-based sauces freeze very well.
