Stale bread? No problem! Cube up the bread, toss with a bit of olive oil and herbs (oregano, parsley, basil and rosemary to name a few), then bake at 375° until golden and crispy. Voila! Perfect croutons for your spring/summer salads that last up to another two weeks!
Is the interior of your Dutch Oven stained brown? Do you have burn spots on your stainless steel pots? Use Bar Keepers Friend, water, and elbow grease to remove. In general, try cooking with fats (oil and butter) at lower heats. If you're needing to char something, opt for a cast iron.
