Tip from the Edge

It’s kind of ironic…before I had kids, I didn’t really cook but I would watch cooking shows all the time.  Now that I have kids and actually cook, I have no time to watch TV, let alone cooking shows. Anyways, as I was standing in my kitchen chopping onions, I thought I would share this really useful tip I picked up from some cooking show way back when.  You know how you get these giant onions at the market and a recipe will call for 1 cup of chopped onions, which ends up about being 1/2 an onion?  And then you end up with half a rotting onion in your vegetable drawer.  Here’s the tip: chop up the other half and put it in a freezer bag and into the freezer.  Then the next time you need chopped onions, you already have some ready to go. You don’t even need to defrost them.
