A cake pan? Forget about it; birthdays only come once a year. A toaster oven? Let your broiler do the work! But the one must-have tool you must keep in your cooking arsenal is the muffin tin. It just may be one of the coolest tools you own. Obviously, it’s great for muffins—but you can use it for so much more. And, of course, with a muffin tin you’ve got the assurance of built-in portion control. Get out your muffin tin and let the magic begin. From lasagna to sumptuous mini pies, these six foods get a whole new look.</p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/6_new_and_genius_ways_to_use_your_muffin_tin#comments Food Blog Cooking tips Hilary Meyer Kitchen tools Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Tue, 11 Mar 2014 15:23:09 +0000 jbrandt802 282034 at http://www.eatingwell.com How to Pick the Best Kitchen Knives http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/how_to_pick_the_best_kitchen_knives <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/how_to_pick_the_best_kitchen_knives" target="_blank"><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/MCL_kitchen_knives_102079975_lyons_andy_310_0.jpg" alt="How to Pick the Best Kitchen Knives Blog Post" title="How to Pick the Best Kitchen Knives Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148"/></a></div> <div><p>For most purposes, an 8- to 10-inch chef’s knife is the perfect tool. Because the blade is wider at the base, it’s strong enough to cut through a winter squash and the tapered point makes it just the right shape for the rocking motion used to mince, slice and dice. When shopping for a new knife, there are three things to consider: how it feels, what the blade is made of and the way it’s constructed. Spend some time in a kitchen store and try a few out. The material the handle is made from does not necessarily indicate quality—so find one that fits comfortably in your hand.</p> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/how_to_pick_the_best_kitchen_knives#comments Healthy Cooking Blog Cooking tips Kitchen tools Stacy Fraser Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Fri, 03 Jan 2014 19:51:15 +0000 Stefan_20 280815 at http://www.eatingwell.com Healthy Ways to Use Your Leftover Pulp from Juicing http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/healthy_ways_to_use_your_leftover_pulp_from_juicing <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/healthy_ways_to_use_your_leftover_pulp_from_juicing" target="_blank"><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/juice_pulp_blog.jpg" alt="Healthy Ways to Use Your Leftover Pulp from Juicing Blog Post" title="Healthy Ways to Use Your Leftover Pulp from Juicing Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148"/></a></div> <div><P>Juicing is an easy and quick way to get more healthy fruits and veggies into your diet.
