Helpful Cooking Hints With HolyJuan: Butter

Butter is in every single recipe. If it is not in a recipe you are using, you are cooking incorrectly. Here's a simple trick I learned.

When using butter, they usually ask that you measure out the butter in tablespoons. Instead of getting out a an actual tablespoon and making a mess, use the stick of butter measuring lines.  I'm making mac and cheese and need 4 tablespoons of butter.

FIRST: Get out your stick of butter and notice the marked lines.


SECOND: Cut the lines until you get to the 4 TBSP mark.


THIRD: We only need the 4 TBSP, so throw out the other chunks.


FOURTH: Put the 4 TBSP in the recipe. Done and done!
