Flax Eggs

Mix 1 to 3 teaspoons ground flax meal with 1 cup of boiling water until smooth and let stand for 10 minutes and become gelatinous.

Use 1/4 cup per large egg when used in  baking.

It works well when replacing one egg but not as good replacing three or more eggs because it adds lots of fat.

Store flaxseeds or flax meal in the refrigerator to maintain freshness.

How to Cook The Perfect Pasta

Cook pasta in a big pot and test it several times for doneness, thus slightly hard or underdone in the center.

When you drain the pasta, don’t rinse it. That’s so in-Italian. The natural gluteus left on the pasta will make your sauce stick to the noodles.

Save about 1/4 cup of pasta water to add to the sauce at the last minute. Helps kick up the taste and enriches the sauce without adding calories.

Use Parmesan cheese, it replaces the salt and gives it a great taste.
