Cooking Charts

Who hasn't wondered how long to cook meat or ruined a pot of noodles by cooking them too long -- or not long enough? With our how-to cooking charts and helpful guides, you'll never have to worry about ruining a meal again. How to cook meat can be a tricky task. You need to make sure it's cooked to a certain temperature to be safe, but what are those levels? Keep copies of our free downloadable charts next to your stove and grill to ensure you know the times and temperatures required for beef, chicken, turkey, lamb, and fish. While you're learning more about cooking meat, be sure to take a look at our guide to roasting meat and poultry; the step-by-step article makes the process easy to understand. We've also got explanations of various types of fish, as well as how-tos on techniques such as boiling lobster tails. Texture is key to perfect pasta, and we've got a cooking chart that explains how to get it right. When you're in the produce aisle, determining what's fresh and what needs to ripen might be overwhelming -- but our guide takes the worry and questions out of shopping for fruits and veggies.
