Kraft Kitchens Tips

Healthy Living
Looking to include more whole grains in your diet? Then use whole-wheat pasta in this Greek-inspired meal.
Storage Know-How
Stand fresh asparagus spears upright in a container filled with about 1 inch of water. Cover with a plastic bag and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
Shrimp Sizes
The size of a shrimp is indicated by the count or number of shrimp per pound. The smaller the number, the larger the shrimp. Shrimp size terminology varies from place to place, so the count is the most accurate way to call for shrimp in a recipe. A basic guideline is: 11 to 15 is jumbo; 16 to 20 is extra large; 21 to 30 is large; 31 to 35 is medium and 36 to 45 is small.
