Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store.
If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster.

Store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil.
It will stay fresh much longer and not mold!

Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom
 are sweeter and better for eating.
Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom

 are firmer and better for cooking.

Ground Beef
Add a teaspoon of water when frying ground beef.
It will help pull the grease away from the meat while cooking.

To really make scrambled eggs or omelets rich add a couple of
spoonfuls of sour cream, cream cheese, or heavy cream; then beat them.
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.

Add garlic immediately to a recipe if you want a light taste
of garlic and at the end of the recipe if your want a stronger taste of garlic.

Reheat Pizza
Heat leftover pizza in a nonstick skillet on top of the stove; set heat to med-low

and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza.

Measuring Cups
Before you pour sticky substances into a measuring cup,
fill with hot water.
Dump out the hot water, but don't dry cup.

Next, add your ingredient (peanut butter, honey, etc.)
and watch how easily it comes right out.
