Thanks GB and really? I guess the picture I have in my head is all wrong. Surely I need to grate a lemon tonight - I'll go home and try it!

Can't wait to test it!

Tired of "non-crispy" homemade pizza... try an inexpensive pizza stone. The results are amazing!

Have a kid in the kitchen with you. Charge them one round of dishwashing for the lesson, and enjoy the fact that for the most part, they will eat anything they cook.

crono, you stole my tip. :) I always have a "refuse bag" handy. I use a bag from veggies, or the styrofoam container from meat, or whatever. My trash can is across my (admittedly small) kitchen, and it saves me from having to carry veggie peels or garlic skins across the room, invariably leaving a trail of trash in my wake.

What I really want is one of those magical "trash holes" cooking show hosts have. Maybe one day.

Use baking soda on chopping boards to remove the smell of onions and garlic. Sprinkle on baking soda, scrub with a damp sponge and rinse clean.

I fill up my empty spice bottles with water and add a teaspoon of baking soda to them and shake to get the odor out. I let them dry, and reuse the bottles for my own spice mixes.

hi every one,
some times it is good to put your sponges in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds, this is kind of an autoclave process and it kills the bacteria and other microorganisms.
