==> To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes!

==> To prevent egg shells from cracking, add a pinch of salt to
the water before hard-boiling!

==> Use a pastry blender to cut ground beef into small pieces
after browning!

==> Sweeten whipped cream with confectioners' sugar instead of
granulated sugar. It will stay fluffy & hold its shape better!

==> For easy "meatloaf mixing", combine the ingredients with a
potato masher!

==> If you don't have enough batter to fill all cupcake tins,
pour 1 tablespoon of water into the unfilled spots. This helps
preserve the life of your pans!

==> To easily remove honey from a measuring spoon, first coat the
spoon with nonstick cooking spray!

==> Run your hands under cold water before pressing Rice Krispies treats in the pan. The marshmallow won't stick to your fingers!

==> Mash and freeze ripe bananas, in one-cup portions, for use in
later baking. No wasted bananas (or you can freeze them whole,
peeled, in plastic baggies.)
