  1. If an egg is spoiled it will float in a bowl of water rather than sink.
  2. To avoid dulling the blade of your knife, turn it upside down before scraping items off your cutting board.
  3. Use ice cube trays to freeze small portions of pesto, broth, applesauce and pizza sauce. Transfer the cubes to a Ziplock bag or other freezer-proof container and it will be easy to pull out exactly how much you need.
  4. The PLU code for organic produce starts with the number 9 and is five digits long (conventional produce is only 4 digits).
  5. To make peeling and mincing garlic easier first mash the clove with either the flat part of the knife or with the knife handle.
  6. Roll lemons or limes between the counter and the heel of your hand to make them easier to juice.
  7. To kick up a standard grilled cheese sandwich, sprinkle a little freshly grated parmesan cheese on the outside of the bread while it’s cooking then flip it over in the pan so the cheese will cook/stick to the bread.
  8. If measuring out both oil/butter and honey put the oil or butter in your measuring cup first then the honey will slide right out.
  9. Put bread ends or scraps (if cutting your child’s sandwich into a festive shape) into a big bag in the freezer to save for homemade croutons, stuffing, or breadcrumbs.
  10. Discard the seeds from hot peppers to reduce the heat a bit and allow the pepper flavor to be appreciated.
