Cooking alternatives from Martha and friend:






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

            Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the  cone, for Pete’s sake! You are probably lying on the couch with your  feet up eating it, anyway!

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

            Buy Hungry Jack mashed potato mix. Keeps in the  pantry for up to a year.


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.

Go to the bakery! Hell, they’ll even decorate it  for you!


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.’

If you over-salt a dish while you are cooking,  that’s too bad. Please recite with me the real woman’s motto: ‘I made  it, you will eat it and I don’t care how bad it tastes!’

Wrap celery in aluminum foil when putting in the  refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.

Celery? Never heard of it!

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

The Mrs. Smith frozen pie directions do not  include brushing egg whites over the crust, so I don’t.


Cure for headaches: take a lime, cut it in half  and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.

Take a lime, mix it with tequila, chill and  drink!  All your pains  go away!

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

Go ask that very cute neighbor if he can open it  for you.

Don’t throw out  all that leftover wine. Freeze into ice cubes for future use in  casseroles and sauces.

            Leftover wine??????????? HELLO!!!!!!!

            Lastly, if you don’t forward this to 1 of your  friends within the next 5 minutes, your belly button will unscrew and  your butt will fall off.

 Really... it’s  true! Have I ever lied to  you?
