Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Place prepped ingredients on a plate or cutting board in order of use. You won’t have to look at the recipe to see what to add next.
  • tip 2
    Buy fresh-from-the-garden produce at the farmers' market. Keep a cooler in your car to keep items fresh if you're not going straight home.
