Oversalted Your Sauce?

If you accidentally oversalt sauces, add a small amount of vinegar and let cook for 5 minutes. If it's still too salty try adding a little more vinegar. As an alternative try adding a teaspoon of sugar or a cut up potato.

A Few General Tips

Use an egg slicer to slice mushrooms. To make peeling tomatoes a snap, dip them in boiling water for 30 seconds then plunge them in cold water. The skin should peel right off. Cook pasta in lots of water to avoid having it come out sticky. Don't put salt in the water until it comes to a boil. Salted water has a higher boiling point, so it'll take longer to boil.
