Kitchen Tidbits

When greasing a pan, cover your hand with a plastic sandwich bag before handling the grease or butter.  When finished, throw the bag away.

Ring-pull lids can be difficult to remove, especially if you have arthritis.  Slip the handle of a spoon through the ring and with the bowl of the spoon, push the lid away from you.  Off it comes.

Dressing up ice cream by melting milk chocolate chips in the microwave, add a little milk and light corn syrup and heat for 5 seconds.  Stir and drizzle over your favorite ice cream.

If a recipe calls for browned ground meat, get out the potato masher.  Mash the meat as it cooks twisting the potato masher around the pan.  Meat crumbles without chunks.

Instead of mixing mayonnaise and mustard with your yolks when making deviled eggs, mix the yokes with bacon ranch dressing.  It gives your eggs a great taste.

To crush strawberries for a recipe and still have pulp and juice, remove the stems, place the berries in a large bowl, chop them with a pastry cutter.  This allows you to chop them as fine as you want with very little cleanup.
