I mixed a quick Roasted Roma Tomato Dip, just one way to use the roasted tomatoes. So good! Here's how to roast Roma tomatoes, Roasted Roma Tomatoes, including the Roasted Roma Tomato Dip.

One Quick Tip: How to Freeze Stock in Glass Canning Jars

Okay so you've finally made chicken stock. It was no big deal, right? But then what?! How do you store chicken stock for using later?
Just strain your chicken stock into glass canning jars and freeze the jars. Yep, you read that right. Freeze chicken stock in glass jars! I've been doing it for two, maybe three years. It really works.
And naturally, the same technique also works for vegetable stock, beef stock, shrimp stock and any other kind of stock you can make! ~ Skip Straight to the Details ~

They are simple things and just might offer an idea or two for easy additions to your own kitchen, no remodeling budget, no construction dust required.Please know, this is not an impulsive review. When we first moved into the new kitchen, I was of course sooo excited! But I waited to write about it, allowing time and experience to shape the story, to completely understand what works and what doesn't work, what was worth investing in and what wasn't, letting the excitement of the moment pass and the reality of cooking in and cleaning up the new kitchen to take hold.In case there's any question?
