REHEAT PIZZA: Use a nonstick skillet on top of the stove, heat on med-low until warm. This keeps the crust crispy and not soggy like a microwave.
CHEESE: Store open chunks of cheese in aluminum foil to keep it staying fresh longer and not mold.
GREASE: Add a teaspoon of water when frying ground beef. It will help pull the grease away from the meat when cooking.
GARLIC: Add garlic immediately to a recipe if you want a light taste of garlic, and at the end of the recipe if you want a stronger taste of garlic.
BANANAS: Take your bananas apart at home to store them. Leaving them connected at the stem makes them ripen faster. Also keep them away from other items as they will ripen other food as well.
MEASURING CUP: Before you pour sticky substances into a measuring cup, fill it with hot water. Remove the hot water but don’t dry the measuring cup. Add ingredient (such as peanut butter) and it will come out easily.
PEPPERS: Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating. Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking.
STATIC CLING: A small safety-pin to the seam of your slip, skirt, or slacks will eliminate static cling.
ANTS WITHOUT POISON: Put small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it home, and can’t digest it. It takes a week or so, but you won’t have to worry about your children or pets.
LEG SHAVING: Use hair conditioner to shave your legs. It is cheaper than shaving cream and leaves your legs really smooth.
FOGGY WINDSHIELD: Use a chalkboard eraser and rub it on a foggy window. Works better than a cloth.
MOSQUITOES: Try putting a dryer sheet in your pocket to help keep the mosquitoes away.
