: My favorite cooking tip is to use fresh spices when possible. I often grow my own and find that it dramatically enhances the flavor of many foods.
: Grow your own herb garden indoors. It's easy and much cheaper than the supermarket.
: My second tip is to use a cornstarch and water mixture to dip sliced meats in before cooking. This ensures tenderness.
My best ttip for spices is to buy them at an Indian Grocery store. Share the shopping with a friend and split the bags. That way you won't have such a large quantity to keep on hand. Best prices on cinnamom, cumin, cinnamon sticks, curry powders and garam masalas.
