Expert Tips

Pouring bacon drippings down the drain can cause plumbing problems. Instead, pour it into a can, refrigerate until solid, then toss into the trash.

Garlic-pepper is a seasoning mix of garlic powder and cracked pepper that can be found in the spice aisle of the supermarket. It adds a double dose of flavor with just a few dashes.
