Lyn Cote Shares her Mother's BEST Advice

My mother gave me much good advice and I have followed it and shared it with others.

My mother’s BEST advice to me was—“There’s an easy way to do everything, just find it!” 

 This came to mind recently and I figured out another way to follow it! Here it is. 

Since I live in the northwoods of Wisconsin where winter lasts till April or May some years, I make a lot of soups in the winter, at least, one big pot a week. 

And the main work of making a soup is chopping the veggies, don’t you know? ‘-) 

Last week it occurred to me that I didn’t have to chop them before when they are very firm and harder to chop. How much easier to merely clean and peel and drop them into the soup whole? 

Later I pulled them out when they were just tender, chopped them lickety-split and then put them back in for the last 30 minutes or so. It worked! 

The soup tasted fine and the veggies were more “toothsome.”

So to start the new year, now it's your turn—do you have a tip for me? 

This tip doesn’t have to be a cooking tip, just any little thing that makes your life easier! Please share! I'm always open to good advice!

And looking for something "seasonal" to read?
How about my LOVING WINTER?

Happily single, Winter Woodard who inherited her grandfather’s nursery is looking forward to a busy, fun fall and holiday season. 

And it all begins with her cousin’s wedding where Winter meets the man the ladies around town have been buzzing about. Single by choice, Clay Dixon, the very successful football coach at the local high school, has rebuffed all offers of “home-cooked meals,” keeping the female population at bay. That’s fine with Winter. She’s her own woman, thank you very much. 

Then bad things begin to happen. And unexpectedly Clay Dixon stands by her through a holiday season fraught with unnerving and destructive setbacks.

Is someone out to ruin Woodard Greenery’s, all she has left of her beloved grandfather and mother?
