Wash your hands thoroughly with hot water and soap after handling raw meat or eggs.
Cook by the appearance of the meal over what the cooking time is. Look for it to be “golden brown” before “done in 30 minutes”. This is known as “common sense” cooking.
Cook healthier foods by using a little less salt, a little less sugar, and a little less butter. Bake instead of fry when possible and use whole grains and fat-free milk.
Leftovers – Hot foods should be refrigerated within 2 hours after cooking. Be careful with leftovers. Remember; when in doubt, throw it out! Do not “taste test” something that you think might be bad. Even just a small taste can make you ill if the food is bad.
Be extremely careful not to drag your sleeves over the burner. Wear tight fitting clothes while cooking. Also, put your hair up so that it doesn’t catch fire while leaning over the stove.
