  Sweet-Tea Brined Ham For Your Easter Celebration Sweet-Tea Brined Ham For Your Easter CelebrationSome of us consider a big, sizzling ham as essential to the Easter table as turkey is to the Thanksgiving feast. When it comes to cooking a large ham, or any celebratory entrée, we want the best possible outcome, which is why some cooks insist on brining a fresh ham to ensure it turns out juicy and flavorful. Some cooks up the Southern quotient by using classic sweet tea in place of water in a wet brine.

With the exceptions of cherry tomatoes—which are good pretty much all year—I try to avoid buying tomatoes until at least July, as purchasing them any earlier usually leads to disappointment.

Rather than throw them away, I decided to fiddle around and see if I can make them taste just a bit closer to a true summer tomato.

I then set them on wire wrack to draw out some of the water for about 10 minutes, then sprinkled on a little more salt and sugar.

  4 Surprising Lessons I Learned by Trying the Keto Diet 4 Surprising Lessons I Learned by Trying the Keto DietThe ketogenic, or keto, diet is a low-carb, medium-protein, and high-fat diet. It was first developed in the 1920s as a way to treat children with severe epilepsy. As a small side effect, it also helped with losing weight. Being on the ketogenic diet, and therefor being in ketosis, teaches your body to burn fat cells for energy instead of burning the carbs and sugars. Needless to say, it sparked my attention.

The process didn’t magically turn the tomato into an August tomato, but it was much improved. Drawing out moisture had helped concentrate the flavor, and the addition of sugar added some much needed sweetness, making it taste riper and fruitier.

7 Delicious Ways to Dress up Your Boring Oatmeal .
Oatmeal Not the best sounding word that describes an edible food. It's as though there's a sense of "ugh" that drags along with the use of the word. It's boring, nonetheless unappetizing. However, some people have no issue enjoying a bowl of boring oatmeal (ugh). But for others, it's not as easy to get around the texture, tastelessness, and the down right boringness of oatmeal. There are solutions to this, by dousing your oatmeal with a ton of added sugar. But doesn't that defeat the whole purpose of eating oatmeal in the first place?People don't grab a bowl of mush for the enjoyment of putting that in their mouths. They do it for the health benefits.
