|Here's a convenient,
no-bake version of roast chicken. We've included
vegetables to make it a complete and healthy meal. Here
are a couple of tips when roasting meats. For a more
tender roast, soak meats from 3 hours to overnight in a
tomato sauce-based marinade. The natural acidity of
tomato sauce tenderizes meats by breaking down the meat
fibers. For a more flavorful roast, carve some slits on
the meat. This allows it to absorb the marinade better.

Here's a quick treat to brighten up your day. It's
something easy you can whip up. Best of all, you can keep
any leftovers in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days. It's
great for merienda or for dessert, too. Remember, sweet
potatoes will spoil once they get wet. It's best to store
them dry and just wash them when you're ready to use
them. And treat your sweet potatoes with care, if they're
cut or bruised, they'll spoil faster.
