How to Drain Thawed Frozen Spinach
When recipes call for thawed spinach to be "well drained," this means the excess liquid must be pressed or squeezed out. Use clean hands to squeeze out portions of the spinach, or place the spinach in a sieve and press on it with the back of a large spoon.
How to Soften Cream Cheese
Place completely unwrapped package of cream cheese in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 10 sec. or just until softened. Add 15 sec. for each additional package of cream cheese.
