Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Eating enough vegetables can be quite a challenge for many children and even some adults. But you can hide veggies in a delicious, nutritious treat--scones!
  • tip 2
    A member of the morning glory family and native to South America, sweet potatoes are cultivated in many parts of the world. They are high in vitamins A and C.
  • tip 3
    Sweetheart, make it easy on yourself. A drained 23-ounce can of sweet potatoes gives you 2 cups of mashed spuds--no need to cook. Just measure 1 cup for the recipe and save the remaining cup for a side dish or another use.
