From Taste of Home...Shortcuts Worth Sharing

Shortcuts Worth Sharing

THIS regular feature gives readers a chance to share their favorite kitchen tips, household hints and "home remedies".

> Put a few drops of peppermint oil in your hot dishwater to make your kitchen and surrounding rooms smell wonderful. --Dora B., Woodruff, South Carolina

> Rather than trimming a frozen roast to fit your roasting pan, try this: Put a fresh roast into a plastic freezer bag, then fit it into your roasting pan and freeze. Once it's frozen, you can take it out of the pan, knowing it'll fit perfectly when you're ready to roast. --Ruth B., Feasterville, Pennsylvania

> I've found that those plastic vegetable storage bags with tiny holes are perfect for storing fresh-baked muffins. The muffins stay nice and moist and don't get sticky. --Julie I., Sebeka, Minnesota

> When you find a recipe you like better than one in a favorite cookbook, copy it onto a file card and tape it over the recipe in the book. This way, you can use the book's index to quickly find your new, improved recipe. --Karen B., Gove, Kansas

> If your recipe calls for a can of chopped tomatoes and you have a can of whole tomatoes, insert a knife into the opened can several times to cut the tomatoes. It's much easier than using the food processor or cutting each tomato with a knife on a cutting board. --Sherry G., York, Nebraska
