Cooking Tips

I learned to cook by watching my mother.  It wasn't until I started writing down recipes that I realized that she had taught me many of the fundamentals that not everyone knows.  In some of my posts, I have added a brief cooking lesson to make it easier to create the dish being explained.

How to cook Scallops
How to make Béchamel (classic White Sauce)
(and how to make Infused Béchamel) 
How to peel a Tomato
How to poach an Egg
Toffee-making steps

Here's some additional Kitchen Witch Tips, as well, which are tied to Recipes.
