...From Someone who has been Cooking for Over Thirty Years and has Learnt Almost Nothing

This smiley banana-y face marks the beginning of my New Series of 'Food Facts and Cooking Tips'.

I hope you're excited.

I am a Big Fan of The Great British Bake Off, of Delia Smith, and especially of anyone who can produce a delicious and nutritious meal using 6 ingredients or fewer.  (More than six ingredients and I lose concentration).

However, I feel there is a gap in the market for the rather more basic cooking tips and info.
This is a hole I intend to plug. (Ooh,  sounds rude).  And so I begin...

TIP #1
Steaming Vegetables

There are all sorts of steamers readily available; bamboo steamers, stainless steel stacking steamers, electric steamers and even little steamer attachments for use on an existing saucepan.

Any or all of these work perfectly adequately; it would just be a matter of personal preference as to which device you opted for.
However, as the name would suggest, steam is a fundamental part of this cooking process.
It is therefore ESSENTIAL ...

...that you remember to add water to the steamer.


And in close-up...

That greeny-blue blob?  Washing up liquid.
Yeah right, like washing up liquid is going to get that mess off.

This is Kate at Do Not Break the Dog.  Making stupid mistakes - so you don't have to.
