- Love chili peppers, but want less of the kick? Just remove the seeds and veins and rinse them in cold water. The spiciness will dissapear, but the taste will stay the same.
- You can get crispy crust potatoes without the frying oil by simply powdering them with flour and baking them.
- Counting calories? You can replace heavy cream with 3/4 whipped egg whites when making dessert.

- Use beets baked in foil for salads: unlike boiled beets, baked beets contain more vitamins and retain more taste and color.
