Cooking with Connie Where Every Meal Counts This week’s recipe uses a meat thermometer, citrus zester, and an oven roasting bag.  You may never have used a meat thermometer, but I always use mine to make sure meats are cooked to the proper internal temperature.  Most models even have the temperatures and different meats listed on the thermometer, so they are quite user-friendly.  A citrus zester is a small tool that you lightly drag across the peel of citrus fruits to shave off that … [Read more...]
