Make This Vinaigrette And Never Buy The Bottled Stuff Again


Ever since I made this super tasty vinaigrette I’ve never had to grab a bottle at the supermarket. The store-bought stuff is full of high-fructose corn syrup, preservatives and other junk. But this stuff is like liquid gold.

All you need are shallots, lemon juice, olive oil, parsley, mustard, salt and pepper. Jam it all into a mason jar, screw on the lid and shake it up. Presto, amazing salad dressing with simple ingredients and no fuss.

  5. Tablespoon Honey
  6. Spoonful of Mustard (Djon, Course Ground, etc)
  7. Pinch of Salt and Pepper

Steps:

  1. Add minced shallot to mason jar
  2. Add lemon juice

Make The Perfect Popcorn On Your Stove With A Stainless Steel Bowl

The products and services mentioned below were selected independent of sales and advertising. However, Simplemost may receive a small commission from the purchase of any products or services through an affiliate link to the retailer's website.

Here’s a great new tip, courtesy of Alton Brown that will take your popcorn making to the next level. All you need is a heavy gauge stainless steel bowl and you have the perfect popcorn machine.

According to Brown, the bowl helps popped kernels move away from the bottom of the bowl so they don’t burn. The oil and kernels slide to the bottom near the heat to keep the kernels popping.

Checkout Alton’s video as he walks you through the process. There are two keys to using this method:  1) Covering the bowl with heavy duty foil / poking slits it in for steam to escape and 2) Continuously shaking the bowl over a medium heat until the kernels pop.

If you don’t have a big stainless steel bowl, then you can use a wok.  In need of a great bowl, then checkout this really affordable one from Amazon.
