Quick Tips

Cooking Tip Icon

Cooking Tip: To keep a baked coating on a slippery food like the string cheese, a dip first in cornstarch holds it all together. Try it out when coating other foods, like chicken breasts.

Keep it Healthy Icon

Keep it Healthy: Remember this easy-to-make marinara sauce for your next pasta dinner, which is just a combination of strained/crushed tomatoes and spices. Warm on the stovetop or just heat in the microwave. It has more flavor and less sodium, sugar, or preservatives than a jarred marinara.

Tip: Can't find fat-free mozzarella sticks? Use part-skim or 2 percent mozzarella string cheese.
