Clean As You Go

Clean as you go in the kitchen. It will be a lot easier to see where you’re at and to find your tools and bowls if you pile them nicely in the sink or even better, in the dishwasher if you have one.

Plastic Cups for Stored Ingredients

Get plastic measuring cups that you keep in your dry ingredients containers.

Keep Your Knives Sharp

It's important to keep your knives sharp. Not only will they cut better, but a sharp knife is safer to use.

What To Do With Ripe Bananas

If you have bananas that are getting too ripe and you don't have enough or don't feel like doing muffins or bread or cream pie, peel them (), wrap them in wax paper and freeze them.

Herbs & Spices

Use herbs and spices in your dishes. They often make the difference between a bland dish and a great dish.

Keeping Brown Sugar Soft

Brown sugar stays reasonably soft in the fridge. A piece of apple or slice of bread in the brown sugar will almost guarantee it remains soft.

Rubber Mats

You can find non-skid rubber mats or double-sided suction cups to place under bowls or cutting boards to prevent them from sliding around when you use them.


Did you ever stop to taste a carrot? Not just eat it, but taste it? You can't taste the beauty and energy of the earth in a Twinkie. Astrid Alauda
