When it comes to separating eggs, I usually just do it by hand. Literally. I crack the egg into one hand, catch the yolk and let the white drip between my fingers into a bowl below. If a speck of yolk in the whites won't hurt, I might use the shell method, catching the yolk in half of the shell, while letting the whites fall into a bowl below. Both methods are messy, but effective. Separating eggs by hand means I don't have to give up precious kitchen space for a tool I use only occasionally.

Cooking with diabetes: Maple orange puree a heartwarming dish

Winter squash might be so named because it is hardy enough to keep through the coldest season, but its bright orange hue and the time it is harvested signal autumn perfectly. Its brilliant color also indicates a wealth of nutrition, because beta carotene, a powerful antioxidant and source of vitamin A, is what makes the squash orange.
