The Cooking Mom's Secrets and Tips



Pies

Beat an egg white and brush over your pie crust before baking for a beautiful glossy finish.

Perfect Pancakes

Use a meat baster to squeeze your pancake batter onto the hot griddle.

Onion Odor on Hands

The easy way to remove the onion odor is to rub your hands on your stainless steel sink. Then wash them.  And… for those of you who don’t have a stainless steel sink, try using a stainless steel butter knife!

Lemon Juice

To get the most juice out of lemons, roll them under your palm on the counter a few times before squeezing.

Easy to Peel Oranges

Need to peel a bunch of oranges. Just soak the oranges in boiling water for a few minutes then peel as usual. As a bonus, the “white” part of the peel will come off along with the peel!

Herbs

To keep herbs fresh longer, loosely wrap them in a damp paper towel, place in a plastic bag and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
