non-stick ideas

Hi there!, before you measure peanut Butter, or molasses into a measuring cup, coat the cup with vegetable oil. the peanut butter or molasses will slide right out, making the cup easier to clean! Happy baking!

food too salty!

If you accidently over- salt a dish while it's still cooking, drop a peeled potato into it, and it will absorb the excess salt, for an instant fix!

stained containers?

to prevent your Tupperware from getting stained,(from tomato- based sauces), spray your containers with non-stick cooking spray before adding the food. no more stained containers!

to keep celery longer!

To keep celery longer, wrap it in aluminum foil. it'll keep for weeks in your vegetable bin!

flouring baking pans

when a recipe calls for "flouring your cake pans", use a bit of your cake mix instead of flour, and ya' won't have that unsitely powder all over your cake!

for the kids!

before making your child an ice cream cone, stuff a miniature marshmellow into the bottom of the cone to prevent drips!(if the cone is already broken a bit, use a few!)

stained containers

stained containers

I especially like your tip about spraying the non-stick coating on plastic containers to keep them from staining. My plastic containers got really messed up from spaghetti sauce and the like so I'll give this one a try.

The marshmallow in the ice cream cone is one of the best! The little ones were forever "dripping" all over the car and this one is an absolute must! (Keep a little zip lock bag of them in the glove compartment for those surprise trips to the ice cream shop) !
