Getting the most juice out of a lemon just put it in the microwave for a few seconds, roll it back and forth on the counter with the palm of your hand, slice open and squeeze.

You can do the same for garlic. Stick in the microwave for a few seconds (this softens the hard peel making it easier to peel) and follow Khazi's tip just above this post.

Kitchen scales trick.
Before weighing sticky stuff like butter, put some plastic foil on top of the scales. The foil does not affect the scales and you don't have to clean the tray afterwards( or calculate the tara of a bowl or saucer).

Talking When It's Time To Frost - 05-12-2008, 11:37 AM

Always let a cake cool before frosting it, not only will it not melt the frosting, but it's easier to handle as well. To make sure a cake sits still during the frosting process, put some frosting on the middle of the plate (a dollop will do) and then place the cake on top. Frost a thin layer first to seal in crumbs, then go over it again so that your cake is beautiful and crumb free.

P.s. After the cake is finished...that little dollop of frosting on the plate will have absorbed into the cake that was on top of it (THAT"S THE BEST PART!!!) Always wipe it clean with your finger.

Oh yeah great tip by the way beware_toxic_baby_gurl! Also, after chopping or preparing garlic, rinse your hands and cutting surface in lemon juice to get rid of the smell.

And whenever your sink drain gets stinky put lemon juice in there as well!

And Speaking of sink drains, discard egg shells in there (only if you have a garbage disposal!!!) turn it on with running water until there's no more loud grinding sounds. This sharpens the blades.


Please have a look at my Shop!
