How To Dice



Identify the freshest strawberries: “Smell them. If they smell like strawberries, buy them; they will taste divine. If they look gorgeous but have no smell, they will have no taste. Simple and foolproof.” –Cyndi Perlman Fink

…and oranges: “Pick up the orange or grapefruit. If it feels light, it’s not juicy and will taste rather woody. Go through the bin picking the ones that feel heaviest compared to oranges or grapefruits of a similar size. They’ll be the tastiest ones.” –Karen Opas

Keep your pizza crust crisp, even after reheating it in the microwave: “Place a glass of water alongside to avoid the crust from getting chewy. The … water absorbs excess microwaves by acting kind of like an ‘energy sink.’ Thus, the water in the crust is preserved and not vaporized.” –Wassim Ferose
