    Tomato Chopping Tip:
    To seed a tomato before chopping, cut tomato in half crosswise and gently squeeze each half to remove seeds and extra juice.

    I keep lettuce fresh longer by wrapping it in foil.

    The rynolds (sp) wrap press n seal is good for covering deviled eggs and keeping the smell out of your fridge
    I'm out of bed, and dressed what more do you want?

        When I chop onions for a dish I'll usually do a few extra and store the chopped onion in a ziplock bag in the fridge for future use, then I can just grab them & add as much as I want. ( I go through a ton of onion)

                Since we have the subject of dish towels going, lol...I thought of this hint...Place a damp kitchen towel under the bowl you are using (while using mixer, stirring, etc) to keep it from turning or sliding away while you work.
                I planted some bird seed. A bird came up. Now I don't know what to feed it.

                  When measuring crisco or peanut butter in a measuring cup, put a square of plastic wrap in first. Once you get it leveled out, just lift the "little package" out. It keeps the cups clean.

                  I use a sheet of wax paper layed on the counter-top to season, and flour, my meat on. Just toss the paper when finished.

                  To keep tomato or chili stains out of plastic containers, spray them first with cooking spray.


                  I use the dish towel to clean my floors around the stove after frying something too.

                    Ohhh thought of another...when shredding cheese with a grater - spray it with a bit of PAM, the cheese won't stick to the grater!

                      I love to use green/red peppers in cooking & in salads, so, when they're plentiful & cheap, I buy several, chop, and freeze in ziploc bags, just as I do with onions as others have said.

                        I do this with celery and it works great!

                          I especially like AllieK's suggestion of spraying plastic containers with Pam. I often throw my containers away because they get so stained.

                          I hang a small plastic store bag on a drawer knob while i am cooking and throw every bit of garbage in there as I go, wrappers, cans, peelings, etc. I then tie the bag and toss into my bigger garbage can.

                          I use a sray cleaner in a bottle and paper towels to clean my kitchen floor. It's easier and faster for me. No rags or buckets or sponges. I don't feel like i am smearing around old dirt and crumbs.

                            I got this from Rachel Ray, so I'm sure you've all heard it before. I use a garbage bowl, set a extra bowl by you when you're chopping and preparing a meal and throw everthing you would usually make a trip to the garbage can for in the bowl. I never realized how may trips I made to the trash can.

                              I do the same as bennet with the grocery bags on each doorknow for trash. It keeps you from having to run back and forth all the time. A great tip I learned from my mother!!

                              I also use the grocery bags in the trash cans that are 4 gal. or so size, like for the bathroom, kids room trash, etc. They are the perfect fit..........and FREE!! (a lot of people probably do this so it's not a *tip* really)

                              Place an open plastic bag near the telephone before you begin kneading dough or mixing meatloaf. When the phone rings (and it will), simply slip your hand in the bag before picking up the phone and avoid a sticky mess

                              Here are a few others:

                              To deodorize a plastic storage container in which onions or garlic were stored, wash thoroughly, then stuff a crumpled piece of newspaper in the container, and snap on the lid. In a few days the smell will disappear.

                              Leave baking soda on carpeting for the night to absorb musty odors, vacuum in the morning.

                              Wipe miniblinds with damp fabric softener sheets to eliminate static that collects dust. The same trick works for your T.V. screen.
