I buy most of my fish and meats from the fresh markets in town. I usually go about once a week. It's not always easy and practical for me to consume fish/meats fresh, so I want to start freezing more. What are the best ways to freeze and store fresh fish and meats. If it's consumed within a week or two, will there be any freezer burn? How should I go about wrapping it for storage?
I managed to acquire too many boxes of hot cocoa mix this winter and now i'm stuck with it. Now that spring cleaning has arrived I don't want to let it sit around. I'm looking for ways to get some use out of it now that the cold season has passed.
What are some ways I can incorporate it into other dishes?
Does anyone have any favorite recipes or combinations they have tried?
Let me start off by saying I am by no means a vegan or a vegetarian. I eat meat and just about everything else. But I am looking to try something new and enhance my abilities in the kitchen.
I'm looking for a few good cookbooks to start off with. Just one or two will do for now. Any recommendations, recipes or tips anyone can offer will be much appreciated.
