Kitchen tips

*Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of an ice cream cone to prevent ice cream drips.

*To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.

*When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the outside of the cake.

*If you accidentally over-salt a dish while it's still cooking, drop in a peeled potato and it will absorb the excess salt for an instant 'fix-me-up.

*Wrap celery in aluminum foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks. (Works too!)

*Brush some beaten egg white over pie crust before baking to yield a beautiful glossy finish.

*If you have a problem opening jars, try using latex dish washing gloves. They give a non-slip grip that makes opening jars easy.
