Some Great Helpful Hints

~~Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of an ice cream cone to prevent ice cream drips

~~To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.

~~When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won’t be any white mess on the outside of the cake.

~~If you accidentally over-salt a dish while it’s still cooking, drop in a peeled potato and it will absorb the excess salt for an instant ‘fix-me-up.’

~~Wrap celery in aluminum foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.

~~Brush some beaten egg white over pie crust before baking to yield a beautiful glossy finish.

~~Cure for headaches: take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.

~~If you have a problem opening jars, try using latex dish washing gloves. They give a non-slip grip that makes opening jars easy.

Thank you for the tip on celery. Mine never lasts more than a few days so I will have to try that!
