Martha / Maxine

Martha's way
Stuff a miniature marshmallow
in the bottom of a sugar cone to

prevent ice cream drips.

Maxine's way
Just suck the ice cream out of the

bottom of the cone, for Pete's sake!

Your probably lying down on the couch

with your feet up eating it anyway!

Marthas way
To keep potatoes from budding,

place an apple in the bag with the


Maxines way
Buy Hungry Jack mashed potato mix,

keep in the pantry for up to a year.

Marthas way

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.

Maxines way
Go to the bakery! They will even

decorate it for you!

Marthas way
If you accidentally over salt a dish while

still cooking, drop in a peeled potato

and it will absorb the excess salt for

an instant fix me up.

Maxines way:
If you over salt a dish while you are

cooking, that's too bad! Please recite

with me, the real woman's motto:

" I made it and you will eat it and I

don't care how bad it tastes

Marthas way

Wrap celery in aluminum foil when

putting in refrigerator and it will keep

for weeks.

Maxines way

Never heard of it!!

Marthas way

Brush some beaten egg white over pie

crust before baking to yield a beautiful

glossy finish.

Maxines way
The Mrs. Smith frozen pie directions

do not include brushing egg whites

over the crust, so I don't!

Marthas way

Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it

in half and rub it on your forehead. The

throbbing will go away.

Maxines way
Take a lime, mix it with tequila, chill

and drink! What headache??

Marthas way

If you have a problem opening jars, try

using latex dishwashing gloves. They give

a non-slip grip that makes opening jars


Maxines way
Go ask the very cute neighbor if he
can open it for you!

Marthas way

Don't throw out all that leftover wine.

Freeze into ice cubes for future use in

casseroles and sauces.

Maxines way
Leftover wine?????????????

Ha ha. Good one texas! Have to save that one & send it around. (Is Maxine the lady on the left?)

Flipping through the tv channels one day (think it was Martha), the tip I learned for making spaghetti al dente:

Throw a strand of spaghetti at your stainless steel refrigerator. If it sticks, it's done.

Maidrites way, if someone else is cooking, eat it and smile, Just don't eat there again !

My Mother always said, "If you don't have something nice to say,Don't say it !"

Thank You Texasgirl! You are a Hoot!
If you need a smile, take mine, I'll make a new one.

This is so cute! My mother-in-law sent the same one to me this weekend. Until she explained it...I didn't know who Maxine was....so I just substituted myself. lol Now that I do know...I'm wondering...is she trying to tell me something?

You can close your eyes to the things you do not want to see, but you can't close your heart to the things you do not want to feel.
