As the nation celebrates Small Business Saturday, D.C. business owners say, for them, the day is a chance for people to support businesses in the community, and not the usual big box stores.

Amaya Smith, co-founder of The Brown Beauty Co-op in Dupont circle, says she’s happy that Small Business Saturday has become a staple of the holidays.

“Everybody thinks of Black Friday and the big box stores, but small businesses really power our economy and it’s great for small business to have a piece of this huge retail opportunity that takes place after Thanksgiving,” she said. “It’s been a critical part of our business success, and I think it’s important in general.”

As someone who has built a business from the ground up, Smith recommends small businesses learn to make themselves as visible online as possible so potential customers aren’t limited to their immediate area.

Kimberly Smith is the owner of Marjani Beauty and also co-founded the Brown Beauty Co-op.
She says Small Business Saturday is a reminder for people to shop local whenever they can.

“We’re competing against huge department stores, and it’s a reminder for people to realize that you can still go into small businesses and get everything that you need and want,” Kimberly said.

You’ve been making egg salad all wrong – you need to use a CHEESE GRATER to get it right

CHEESE graters can be used for way more than just a block of cheddar.

A food expert shared how she used a cheese grater to create the perfect egg salad.

Social media user and foodie Rachl Mansfield shared a video of her making egg salad, but in quite an unusual way.

Rather than slicing or mashing up the hard-boiled egg with a fork, this food expert shredded her egg using a cheese grater.

First, she peeled off the shell of the egg and then dragged it over the blades of the grater, making sure the egg shreds landed in the bowl underneath.

The result was perfectly grated fine-shreds of hard-boiled egg, ready to use for egg salad.

She mixed her egg with mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, and bacon nibs and spread it across toasted bread.

"Oh my gosh, it is so good," she said.

One user commented, "I've been grating eggs for 30 years, makes them so creamy."

Another said she uses a potato ricer for her hard-boiled eggs.

A 5-star egg salad recipe suggests using 1/4 a cup of mayonnaise and 2 teaspoons of Dijon for 6 large eggs.

Another eggs-pert suggested that when frying eggs, make sure to crack the eggs in a separate bowl rather than on the pan (which she also said should be non-stick).
