Last year, a family member retired (my mom…). Since their retirement, the number of forwards in my inbox have sky-rocketed. Everything from jokes to kitchen tips. At first, I trashed them, but then I realized that some days I needed a laugh and I always need tips! And honestly – most of them have been circling since about 1999 (when I had my first AOL email account) – so its sometimes nice to ensure a little “blast from the past”.
My favorite recent email was the kitchen tips…one kitchen tip that I learned was that when you are cooking something in boiling water (i.e. the manicotti shells from Friday’s post), put a wooden spoon over the pot, and it will stop it from boiling over. This definitely helps my annoying electric stove which is a COMPLETE pain to clean not get messier than it has to!
Hope this tip helps…would love to hear in the comments some of your favorite tips as well. Anything to make this mom’s life easier!
