Infographic: A Cheat Sheet For Grilling Out It’s surprisingly easy to cook a single piece of meat perfectly every time. If you can’t eyeball it, you can simply use a thermometer. But what can get quite a bit more difficult is juggling a few different proteins--bone-in chicken breasts, brats, and burgers--on a jam-packed grill for a bunch of friends. Click to enlarge. Luckily, this infographic by Column Five Media makes grilling as easy as looking at infographics. Rather than focusing on temperatures, it lists your favorite grillables by heat and cook times. But where it gets interesting is in the graphic’s simplicity of quick comparison. Now I know, you’re a big-time grill master. [Image: Joel Gustaffson/Shutterstock]

LPT: Create a "Pizza" contact for multiple pizza numbers. : LifeProTips Avocado Fries Oh dear. I never should have done this. This may be one of my biggest mistakes all year. Can’t take it back now. So we’re totally enjoying our grilled avocados, but my husband innocently asks “What else can you do with avocados?” Sigh…. At a buck fifty a pop (at least around here), avocados can easily run up quite a tab on the grocery bill. So, consider yourself warned.

10 ingredients to fancy up your meals Sure, you can follow a recipe and whip up something elaborate when you want to show off. But you don’t do that every day. We don't do that every day. Nobody does that every day. We all look at what in the stores on the way home, or check out the sagging vegetables in the crisper and improvise. That's what professional chefs do, too – when they don't order take-out. Here are 10 things that you can keep around the house to make those dinners you whip up on the fly seem more like restaurant dishes.Sherry vinegar Sometime in the '80s, Americans discovered balsamic vinegar, the sweet and syrupy condiment that Italians had been enjoying for centuries. Pimentón Another Spanish import, pimentón is paprika – but not that tasteless, dusty stuff your mother sprinkled all over the chicken. Smoked sea salt Food geeks are in love with fancy salts: pink sea salt from Hawaiian beaches, hand-gathered grey salt from Brittany. Pancetta Shallots Miso Fish sauce Dried porcini mushrooms Dry vermouth

Skinny Mashed Potatoes Mashed potatoes are one of my favorite things to eat on Thanksgiving, but this year since I am pregnant and on a really strict low carb diet (for my diabetes) real mashed potatoes are out (bummer). I recently started researching alternatives to some of my favorite dishes because there is NO way my plate will be without a big ole pile of mash potatoes. I came across this recipe that uses cauliflower instead of potatoes. Hmmm not a big cauliflower fan so I wasn't sure. If there is a choice of either celery or cauliflower in a veggie dish 9 times out of 10 I will choose the celery. BUT I decided to give it a try since the reviews were outstanding. ***BEST MOCK mashed potatoes I have ever had! What you will need: 1 head of cauliflower 1 tablespoon of cream cheese1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic1/2 teaspoon of salt5 or so dashes of pepperChives for garnish Directions:Wash and cut cauliflower into small pieces. These were seriously unbelievable!

Hebrew for Christians Homemade Fruit Rollups Fruit Roll-Ups are fun treats, but they’re not exactly something I want my kids eating every day. I recently experimented with making homemade fruit leather. It’s so good! Recipes like this are perfect for when you have lots of less-than-prime fruit on hand that needs to be used up fast. In this instance, I had a combo of peaches and cherries that would soon be heading south. Give this 100% fruit snack a try next time your kids have a sweet craving.

Cheese Pinwheel Rolls Sooner or later, all my conversations inevitably turn to food. Don’t believe me? Call me up sometime and try to, say, sell me some insurance. I guarantee that before we get off the phone, I’ll be giving you my recipe for blackberry jam. I can’t help it. Perfect example: I was in a meeting a few weeks ago at the office. What was the best way to make them? Ah, the Frankenroll This recipe borrows heavily from two fairly unrelated things. To make these rolls, spread pizza dough liberally with melted butter, sprinkle it with cheese and spices, roll it up like a stromboli—then slice and bake like a pan of cinnamon buns. The result? Fill them however you like The best part about these rolls? This is what I always refer to as a Sliding-Scale Recipe. You can toss it together with a ball of pre-made dough and a bag of shredded cheese from the grocery store—or you can go all out and make the dough from scratch and grate your favorite cheeses by hand. So, this one’s for you, Scott. Melt the butter.
