Did You Know?

* Take bananas apart when you get home from the market. If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster.
* Primates peel a banana from the bottom and don't have to pick any strings off.
* Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating, and peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking.
* Add a teaspoon of water in the pan when frying ground beef to pull the grease away from the meat while cooking.
* If making brownies as a treat, make them as directed on the recipe, and then add melted chocolate mints, pouring them over the warm brownies. Let them set for a wonderful minty frosting with less saturated fat and food chemicals found in many packaged frostings.
* If you want a light taste of garlic in a recipe, add garlic immediately as you cook, but if you want a stronger taste of garlic, add it at the end of the recipe.
* To reheat pizza with a crispy crust, heat the slices in a skillet on the stovetop at med-low temperature, and heat until warm.
* Deviled eggs can be made easier by placing the cooked egg yolks in a zip lock baggie. Seal and mash until the yolks are broken up. Add the remainder of your ingredients to the yolk in the baggie, reseal, and continue mashing. Cut the tip of the baggie and squeeze the yolk mixture into the egg white. Throw the baggie away when done for easy clean up.
* If you ever purchase a container of cake frosting (but I do not personally recommend it), whip it with a mixer for a few minutes to double its volume. This lessens the refined ingredients and dilutes the calories per serving.
* When reheating refrigerated bread, biscuits, pancakes, or muffins, heat them next to a cup of water. The moisture will keep the food moist and help it reheat faster.
* If you break glass in the kitchen, use a wet cotton ball or Q-tip to pick up the small shards of glass and those you can't easily see.
* Keep squirrels away from the house garden with cayenne pepper. The cayenne pepper won't hurt the grass or plants, and squirrels won't come near it.
* To retrieve something from under the refrigerator, add an empty paper towel roll or empty gift-wrap roll to your vacuum hose.
* Before you pour sticky substances such as peanut butter into a measuring cup, fill the cup with hot water. Empty the hot water, but don't dry the cup. Now the sticky ingredient can easily come out.
* To get rid of pesky fruit flies in the house, fill a small glass half full with Apple Cider Vinegar and 2 drops of dish washing liquid. The insects are drawn to the cup and drown.
