Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    How To: To toast nuts, bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350 degree F oven about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Or cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
  • Tip 2
    Did You Know? : Soy milk is a great alternative to regular milk because it gives you many of the same nutrients, and studies show that soy protein, when eaten in the context of a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet, can help reduce the risk of heart disease.
