It's spring and we're beginning to think about spending more time outdoors. Perhaps you're planting a garden or herbs this year.
This month's Cook It Quick gives you tips, recipes and food safety advice to help you save time and money. And ... include kitchen (and refrigerator) spring cleaning as part of your spring cleaning.
P.S. Ingredient counts don't include water, salt, pepper and cooking oil.
Cook It Quick's Goal
Our goal is to make you "hungry for healthy food" by offering tips and delicious, quick-to-prepare, inexpensive recipes.
Preparing these recipes and using the tips will help you increase consumption of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products. At the same time, you will reduce sodium, solid fats, and calories. Food safety tips are included.
