Chef’s notes: A meat thermometer is an investment that will help you avoid overcooking the meats and poultry you serve. Try making your own stock, freezing it in ice cube trays, and storing the cubes in freezer bags. You will save money and add to the nutritional value of your meals. Watch for further info on making stock!
