Tips for the Day

Before opening a package of bacon, roll it. This helps separate the slices for easy removal of individual slices.

Noodles, spaghetti and other starches won't boil over if you rub the inside of the pot with vegetable oil.

If you're buying eggs to be used in recipes, purchase large eggs. That's what most recipes use (whether or not the size is stated). Using extra-large or medium eggs in a baked-good recipe could significantly alter the outcome.

Freezing Cookie Dough Tips

Most cookie doughs freeze extremely well and can be kept frozen for up to 4 or 6 weeks. The most important thing to keep in mind is that the dough will absorb any odd odors present in your freezer if it's not properly wrapped and sealed. To prevent this smell-sponge effect-as well as freezer burn-wrap the dough securely twice. It's also a very good idea to write the type of cookie dough and the date it was frozen on the outside of the package. When you are ready to bake simply let the dough defrost in the refrigerator.

This will take several hours, so plan ahead. The cookie doughs that freeze best are shortbreads, chocolate chip, peanut butter, refrigerator, sugar, and brownies, just to name a few. The types of cookie doughs that do not freeze well are cake-like cookies and cookies that have a very liquidy batter.

Ways to Cook Corn on the Cob

Boiling: Length of cooking time depends on the freshness of the corn. If the corn is young, fresh and tender (picked that morning), remove the husks and cook for 2 minutes maximum in rapidly boiling unsalted water (salt makes the kernels tough) and forget the sugar, the corn is sweet enough.
If the corn is a bit older or has been refrigerated, boil it for 4 minutes.

Microwave: Best for cooking only one or two ears of corn.
Cook with husks off at the highest setting (one ear for 2 minutes, two ears for 5). Rub ears with butter or olive oil
before cooking, if desired.

Roasting on the grill: Husks on or off, there's really no need to soak the ears or remove the silks (they'll come off with the husk).
Place on hot grill. If husks are on, let
them char a bit to impart a wonderfully smoky flavor to the corn and grill six to eight minutes. Or remove husks for
beautiful color and taste (the heat caramelizes the sugar in the corn) and grill for 3 minutes.

Roasting in the oven: Set temperature to 450 degrees and roast six to eight minutes with husk on. If you desire seasoning,
first pull back the husk, rub with flavored butter or olive oil and pull the husks back over the tops.

Salt Tips and Uses
* Put a few grains of rice in your salt shaker for easier pouring.
* Add salt to green salads to prevent wilting.
* Test the freshness of eggs in a cup of salt water; fresh eggs sink; bad ones float.
* Add a little salt to your boiling water when cooking eggs; a cracked egg will stay in its shell this way.
