Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

Southern works really well with Zinfandel, Riesling, and Sparkling Wine. In general, there are a few rules that will help you pair wine with southern food. Food-friendly riesling or sparkling white wine will work with many fried foods, while zinfandel is great with barbecued fare. One wine you could try is Chillhouse Zinfandel Wine. It has 4.5 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 19 dollars.

Chillhouse Zinfandel Wine

The 2012 Chillhouse Zinfandel is both full and exuberant, with aromas of plum and violet jumping out of the glass, followed by chocolate, baking spices, and vanilla. A smooth mouthfeel and balanced tannins combine with flavors of black cherry, nutmeg, toasted almond, and hints of cinnamon. With a spicy, savory mid-palate and an extended finish, this wine will bring the party to you.

Tips

Health Tips

  • To make baked goods lighter and sneak in some extra nutrition, you can swap half the butter or oil (sometimes even all of it!) with an equal amount of unsweetened applesauce.

  • If you're following a vegan diet (or avoiding dairy), make sure the brand of chocolate chips you buy is suitable for your diet! Always read the labels carefully. If you cannot find chocolate chips free from milk or other dairy in stores near you, look online.

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

  • If you really want to benefit from chocolate's health benefits, use cacao nibs instead of chocolate chips. They are much less processed than chocolate chips and have no added sugar!

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

  • If you've had your baking powder for awhile, make sure it's still going to work by mixing it with a little water. If it doesn't fizz, you need to replace it.

  • If your recipe calls for ripe bananas and you only have green ones, stick the green bananas in a closed paper bag to speed up the ripening process. You can even put an apple in the bag with them since apples produce a lot of the gas that encourages ripening (called ethylene). This process takes some time, of course, so if you need ripe bananas immediately you might give the oven method a try.

  • If a recipe calls for buttermilk and you don't have any on hand, just pour a tablespoon of white vinegar into a glass and add enough milk to make one cup. Let sit for about five minutes, and voila, a great buttermilk substitute!
