6 Quick & Easy Tips for Zesty Eating

Whether you're a college student suffering from cafeteria food boredom, a dad who loves to cook, a busy mom looking for quick ways to liven up family meals, a bachelor searching for easy but zesty food, or simply someone who enjoys good eats, here are six easy tips to add flavorful flair to everyday dining:

*Turn plain cooked rice into festive "Spanish" rice by stirring 1/2 to 3/4 cup warmed chunky salsa into 1 cup of hot cooked rice - and yes, simply multiply the quantities for more rice.

*Spoon some chutney over a block of softened cream cheese and serve as an appetizer with crackers, bagel crisps, pretzels or toasted pita wedges.

*Don't settle for plain oatmeal or other bland hot cereals: Wake up your taste buds by stirring in your favorite marmalade or apple sauce. Or if you love hot & spicy foods, splash on some Toad Sweat Dessert Hot Sauce.

*Stock your pantry or dorm room with unique, full-flavored mustard & ketchup so that you never have to suffer through boring fast-food, takeout or cafeteria meals.

*Surprise family & friends with this easy, no-cook alternative to snack chips: Pour 1/2 cup canola oil into a medium bowl, stir in 2 Tablespoons of your favorite BBQ dry rub seasoning (I recommend Bear-Man Tummy Rub), add 4 cups of oyster crackers & stir to coat crackers completely. Let stand about 20 minutes for the seasoned oil to soak in, then serve in a clean bowl for snacking or use as a topping for soup or salad.

*Add a splash of your favorite hot sauce or mild spice sauce to ratchet up the flavor of tuna salad, egg salad, potato salad and other mayonnaise salads
