Sometimes supper doesn't turn out as planned. Rescue it with these tricks from Top Chef finalist Antonia Lofaso and the Food Network's Ingrid Hoffmann.
- Scorched brown rice. Transfer to a container with a whole peeled onion. Cover and let sit for 15 minutes. The onion will absorb the burned flavor and odor.
- Too-salty soup. Add one-half to three-fourths cup of liquid to thin it out. Use milk for pureed or cream-based soups like tomato, and unsalted broth or water for clear ones like chicken noodle.
- Overdressed salad. Toss in some raw baby carrots or broccoli -- they soak up a lot more dressing than greens do.
