NEW BAKING TRICK: When you need softened butter - grate the butter while it is still hard, then mix with other ingredients as normal. It will soften quickly and perfectly and give an even dispersal of butter throughout the dough.

Who knew - add 1/2 tsp baking soda to the water when hard boiling eggs and the shell will come right off when you peel. This site has instructions for the perfect boiled egg.

Cinnamon Honey Butter- Gifts in a Jar

Cinnamon Honey Butter: 1c honey; 1c butter, softened; 1c powdered sugar; 2tsp cinnamon; 3 half-pint jars. Combine ingredients in bowl. Use whisk attachment on mixer and blend until smooth. Pour into plastic bag, cut off tip and squeeze into jars. Keep refrigerated, but best to serve at room temp. Makes a wonderful gift - especially if given along with pound cake, bread, biscuits, bagels, etc.

Homemade Brownie Mix - This is a definite must for me. I would rather spend 5 min mixing ingredients and putting that in a jar than making a box mix with who knows what is in it! - Plus this is CHEAPER!

Chess Squares Recipe Texas gold only 5 ingredients (yellow cake mix, eggs, cream cheese, butter, & powdered sugar) & is super easy to make.

The trick is to put the pan in a cold oven and then switch it on and begin your timer. Im amazed how many people dont know this. Cook bacon in the oven. Cover cookie sheet with tinfoil first. We do 375 for about 20 min instead of 400 for ten because the lower and slower the more fat renders out. I hate getting SPLATTERED!! This works perfect! 8/25/12 - This is the easiest way to cook bacon ever! No more standing over a skillet for me! Clean up was easy! Gotta try this!
