Expert Tips

Instead of perfectly smooth mashed potatoes, leave some of the spuds in chunks for a side dish with hearty character.

Kitchen shears, or scissors, make quick work of many tasks. Use them to: • Snip chives and other fresh herbs. • Cut up canned whole tomatoes right in the can before adding to soups and sauces. • Cut chicken breasts in half along the breast bone before cooking. • Cut pizza into serving-sized slices. • Snip grapes into serving-sized clusters. Be sure to wash the shears in ho soapy water and dry thoroughly to store.
