Peel A Head of Garlic in 10 Seconds!

Monday, March 18th, 2013


OMG! Who’s been keeping this secret!  I love garlic and peeling it is the least fun part of cooking, not to mention the time it takes to do it.  Peeling an entire head of garlic in less than 10 seconds is a secret no longer.  Pass this along, pin it, post it and tweet it to all your friends!

Easy to Make Fruit Fly Trap

Saturday, September 22nd, 2012

When pesky fruit flies are swarming, here’s an easy do-it-yourself trap. Place a funnel with a tiny opening or roll a sheet of paper with a small opening at the bottom, then place in a container with a piece of fruit at the bottom.  When the flies are all out of the room and into the jar, you can release them outdoors.  (When using rolled paper, you may need to tape the paper to the jar to the flies don’t escape.)

How to Easily Freeze Food in Small Portions

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

Freezing Ground Beef

To freeze food or sauces in small portions, put the food into a large freezer bag and press it out as flat as possible, eliminating air pockets. By making it thin, you speed up defrost time and pressing out excess air guards against freezer burn.

Use a long chopstick or ruler to create divisions within the food, forming individual portions. This way when you freeze the entire bag, you’ll be able to quickly break off just as much as you want to use, no more.

You also reduce the waste that would be generated by individually wrapping each little serving in plastic wrap. This freezing technique isn’t limited to ground meat, though. Think thick pasta sauces, mashed or pureed fruit or vegetables, rice, fried rice, cookie dough, etc.

To freeze, just fold the freezer bag into thirds and slide it into what available space you do have.
