Expanding Frosting
When you buy a container of  cake frosting from the store, whip it
with your mixer for a few minutes. You  can double it in size. You
get to frost more cake/cupcakes with  the  same amount. You also eat less sugar/calories per serving.

Reheating  refrigerated bread
To warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were  refrigerated, place
them in a microwave with a cup of water. The increased  moisture will  keep the food moist and help it reheat faster.

Measuring Cups
Before you pour sticky substances  into a measuring cup, fill it with
hot water. Dump out the hot water, but  don’t dry the cup. Next, add
your ingredient, such as peanut butter, and  watch how easily it
comes right out.

Reheat  Pizza
Heat up leftover pizza in a non-stick skillet on top of the  stove,>set heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust  crispy.
No soggy micro pizza. I saw this on the cooking channel and it  really works!

Easy Deviled  Eggs
Put cooked egg yolks in a zip lock bag. Seal,  mash till they are all broken up. Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep  mashing it up mixing thoroughly, cut the tip of the baggy, squeeze mixture into  egg. Just throw bag away when done easy clean up.

Too much salt?

(contributed by Laurel Turner)

If you mistakenly add too much salt to a dish you’re preparing, drop in a potato and continue cooking. The potato will help to absorb the extra salt. Just remember to remove the potato before serving the food!
