-To keep cauliflower white while cooking, add a little milk to the water.
-Do not despair if you over salt gravy. Stir in some instant mashed potatoes to repair the damage. Just add a little more liquid in order to offset the thickening.
-A good way to keep celery longer is to wrap it in foil when you take it out of the package.
