During the COVID-19 quarantine many people have turned to cooking and baking as new hobbies. So much so, that I’ve even heard that there is a shortage on flour!
If you’re one of the lucky ones who still has a bag of flour at home, try your hand at a good ol’ traditional apple pie. It doesn’t require any fancy tricks or too much skill. You can even just skip the homemade crust altogether and buy a frozen crust! All you need are some apples, sugar, and perhaps cinnamon and nutmeg. There are countless recipes online- go find one that sparks your interest on #ApplePieDay.
Once your pie is fresh out of the oven, slice it up with this American-made Cutlery pie server and share it with your quarantine team! Yum!
Even though many of the major holidays have passed, we can still find any day to celebrate with a prime rib dinner. Today is National Prime Rib Day, the best reason to make a yummy flavorful dinner tonight. What exactly is prime rib?
It’s also called a “standing rib roast”
Plan on ¾ lb per person
Cook for 15-20 minutes per pound
Temps for cooking: Medium-rare= 110, Medium= 120, Medium-well=130, Well=140
Now that you know the basics of prime rib, you will also need the proper American-made Cutlery knives in which to cut and serve this yummy cut of beef:
How often are you able to corral your entire family together for dinner? Just one or two days a week? Everyday? It’s not a competition- do whatever is reasonable for your family to handle. Today is National Sunday Supper Day, a day that revolves around the idea to help bring families together around the dinner table. In decades past, it was a common tradition for families to gather in the kitchen, help prepare a large Sunday dinner, and then sit down to enjoy it together. Nowadays with work schedules, homework, after-school activities, and the like, it can be hard to get everyone together, no matter the size of your family. It starts with just one day a week, and can quickly become a weekly or daily tradition.
Here are some easy tips to help bring #SundaySupper back:
Plan the menu with your family- you’ll have something everyone will look forward to
Keep it simple- choose no-fuss recipes
Prep your meal with American Made Cutlery– it’ll speed things up so you spend more time bonding, and less time cooking
And don’t stress about it! Do what works for your family. Just cook, sit, eat, and communicate, and it will quickly set a positive vibe throughout your household.
