If the butter is melted, you should place the bowl in the freezer for several minutes in order to get it hard, or you could place the dough into the refrigerator after you mix all the ingredients. Chilled dough will keep the cookies from spreading excessively as they bake.

You can put the dried tomatoes with fresh herbs in a jar with olive oil to preserve them. Keep it refrigerated and use it within two weeks.

Garlic's only disadvantage is that it transfers smell onto your hands. To get rid of the odors that garlic and other pungent ingredients leave on your hands, rub them around the inside of your stainless steel sink. You will clean your hands and stop smells from rubbing off on other foods.

If you are sauteing, don't use too much liquid in the pan. Excessive moisture can steam food, instead of actually sauteing it. Remember, sauteing is always done at low temperatures.
