I started cooking as a kid and have found it to be a passion for me throughout my life. I've worked in a cooking specialty store, ran a catering company and most importantly, fed my family and expressed my love for them through food.
Cry Me a River...Tip for taking the bite out of onions
With chili season in full swing, and I love chopped onions and cheese on mine, I thought I'd share this easy tip for taking the bite out of onions.
If working with chopped onions to be used raw, simply place them in a strainer (the wire mesh kind) and place the strainer in a bowl of cold water for about 5-10 minutes. Pull the strainer out of the water, shake off the water or pat with a paper towel. That's it.
You'll be amazed by how the onions are now crisp and flavorful without being too overpowering. Happy Eating!
