Potatoes are the number one most bought vegetables. First, they are relatively cheap. Second, they pack in a lot of nutritional value. Lastly, they can be cooked in a variety of ways. You can find potatoes at any time of the year.
There is not a day that McDonald’s does not have French fries. Potatoes have become a comfort food for us. I would love to stock up on potatoes but how long do potatoes last before they get rotten or spoiled? I do not want to end up with rotten potatoes. Neither do I want to serve my family with spoiled potatoes.
I have been working on being a “chef” of my own little home kitchen. In the process I learned that there are certain ingredients that when added to a dish can make it taste a lot more delicious. When I added a stock or broth to my sauces, stews or soups it brought their taste to a different level.
Most chicken soup, stew, casserole, sauce and gravy recipes call for a chicken flavoring. Chicken base enhances the flavor of chicken dishes. Incidentally, so does chicken bouillon, broth and stock. I have cooked a good number of chicken dishes and each time a chicken base, bouillon, broth or stock is an ingredient.
Confusing though is the fact that some chicken dishes require a chicken base while some would require chicken broth, or stock or bouillon. I am pretty sure you too have the same observation. All of this chicken flavorings can be either home-made or bought in the supermarket.
Nutella is the Peanut Butter of Italians. You can use Nutella for recipes that call for Peanut Butter. Nutella is a hazelnut, milk and cocoa mixture with a smooth consistency and a chocolaty taste. Just like Peanut Butter, you can spread Nutella on crackers, bread or fruit slices.
I have completely lost track of the number of times I have cooked chicken and the number of times I have experienced serving half cooked chicken. Not to say that it was always the case but just the same I did serve half cooked chicken and I was completely embarrassed!
