"If you make your own whipped
cream, try using honey instead of sugar. I find
that it has a sweeter flavor and it also stays
firm longer than regular sugar. I especially like
it on tarts." -- C.A. in Louisiana
Here are two uses for dental
floss in the kitchen: 1) Use it to truss a turkey
or chicken; its strong and doesnt
burn -- just remember to use non-waxed and
non-flavored. 2) You can also use it to slice
delicate desserts, like cheesecakes, or even
brownies. It leaves a nice, straight line with no
"If your child really
dislikes taking medicines -- especially a young
child who does not like liquid medicines -- try
letting him or her have an ice pop first. Give
the child the ice pop, and when he or she is
about halfway through, the childs tongue
will be numb enough that the medicine wont
really taste as bad. Make sure the child knows he
or she has to take the medicine, but that it will
taste better after having the ice pop." --

If you are concerned about
wearing out your sheets evenly, try this old
trick: Attach a safety pin to side of the sheet
thats at the foot of the bed. Before you
remove the sheet for washing, switch the pin to
the opposite side of the sheet (the head of the
bed). Launder as normal, then when you make the
bed, arrange it so that the pin is at the foot of
the bed, as it was before the switch." --
I.L. in New York
To sprinkle sugar on cookies or
other baked goods evenly, use a salt shaker. Be
sure to mark it "Sugar."
