Let's be honest: when the holiday meal is over, the best is yet to come. For many of us, it’s not Thanksgiving dinner we look forward to all year but the leftovers. Maybe you like to sneak a piece of that pumpkin pie for breakfast or perhaps it’s the turkey sandwiches in between shopping on Black Friday you’re waiting for, or if you’re creative in kitchen, it might be that you’re looking forward to turning that stuffing into frittatas.
If you’ve spent time in a Mexican restaurant, you’ve probably noticed bottles full of colorful liquid in a curvy, clear glass: Jarritos. Jarritos are a naturally sweet Mexican soda that came about after World War II when businessman Don Francisco Hill created a new line of soft drinks sold in a larger bottle. Originally offered in coffee flavor only, Hill expanded production after he developed a process to remove tamarind juice extract.
You can’t be a great chef without the right tools and the most important of those tools is a good set of knives. Knives are vital, when you find the right ones you’ll suddenly find cooking is easier: chopping onions doesn't make you cry, slicing through steaks is easier than slicing through butter, and you'll be able to cut through bread and tomatoes without ripping them both to shreds.
