Cooks Tips

- Dill is one herb that dries well so if you do not have fresh dill, replace it with half the amount of dried dill. - Three slices or 40 grams Cheddar cheese will provide an adult with at least 50 percent of their daily calcium needs. Put the slices in a sandwich or top them over vegetables at night.
