Cook'n Notes!

Hey Dan! This is a little trick I use in Cook'n to keep track of those little things I either already know and want to pass on to my kids and grandkids, or that I don't know and/or can never remember. In my personal cookbook, I added a chapter called Tips and Techniques. I then add the information I need in the description area of a new "recipe". This is also a great place to store some of the articles from your newsletters.

This is a sample of the kind of information I place there:

Can sizes and equivalents

All About Pasta & Noodles

Egg Substitutes

Global Spices & Substitutes

Jello and Unflavored Gelatin

Ordinary Mayo to Extraordinary Mayo!

Oven Temperature Conversion Table

Spaghetti - How Much to Cook

For example, in the "recipe: Can sizes and equivalents, the following information displays:

8 ounce can - - 8 ounces - - 1 cup

Picnic - - 10-1/2 to 12 ounces - - 1-1/4 cups

12 ounces vacuum - - 12 ounces - - 1-1/2 cups

#1 - - 11 ounces - - 1-1/3 cups

#1 tall - - 16 ounces - - 2 cups

#1 square - - 16 ounces - - 2 cups

#2 - - 1 pound 4 ounces or 1 pint 2 oz - - 2-1/2 cups.............. etc

Just wanted you to know. For what it's worth.
