Handy Quick Tip

After frying a morsel of edible goodness, instead of using paper towels flatted on a sheet pan to absorb the oil, crumple up the paper towels and lay them out loosely. The crumpled up towels reach up into the nooks and crannies of the food and help absorb even more oil.

And for goodness sakes, don't use shortening/Crisco(TM) when frying. That stuff's got NASTY trans fats in it. It'll lower your good cholesterol, raise the bad stuff and harden them arteries quicker than you can say, "OUCH, THAT HURTS!" Use canola oil or olive oil. They contain lots of good fats. More on this topic later.

I don't remember where I got the crumpled paper towel tip while blog-hopping, but I think it was at The Paupered Chef . If not, it's still a great blog worth reading.

Be well, eat well, love well & live long!
