from the test kitchen

Food Director Canadian Living There’s no denying that the team of talented folks in the Canadian Living Test Kitchen loves to cook and create in the kitchen. The thing is, we have busy lives too, just like you, dear readers. And when it comes to dinner, sometimes it takes all the energy we can muster to get a meal on the table. That being said, the importance of taking time each day to sit, share a meal and check in with one another is not lost on us. Studies have shown time and again that eating dinner as a family can lower the risk of obesity in children, increase the consumption of healthier foods, boost confidence levels and promote better performance at school and work. Sounds good, right? So let us help you. This…

cook smart

KITCHEN SECRETS FROM The Canadian Living TEST KITCHEN STAY FRESH FRESH HERBS ADD COLOUR AND FLAVOUR TO ANY DISH, BUT CAN TURN MANKY WITHIN DAYS. PRESERVE AND EXTEND THEIR SHELF LIFE BY WRAPPING WASHED HERBS IN DAMP PAPER TOWEL AND REFRIGERATING IN A RESEALABLE AIRTIGHT BAG OR CONTAINER. TIMING IS EVERYTHING Oven and burner temperatures differ slightly, so we provide a range of cooking times in our recipes. Always check at or just before the first specified time. But, even more importantly, pay close attention to the indications of doneness; for example, cook until onions are softened or bake until crisp and golden.

slow cooker best practices

We love the slow cooker for convenience as it saves time and effort in the kitchen. Here are our top five slow cooker tips: 1. No peeking! Each time you lift the lid to peek or stir adds 15 to 20 minutes to the total cooking time. 2. Trust and stick to the recipe.

As a general rule, the slow cooker should be two-thirds to three-quarters full and no less than half full. 4. Always defrost meat and poultry thoroughly before placing in a slow-cooker. Frozen vegetables can be added near the end of the cooking time. 5. When…
