Kitchen tip Tuesday - 4 Tips
1. Keep store bought French or Italian bread fresh longer.
You know how Italian or French bread comes in those paper bag wrappers from the store. If you have ever left it in that wrapper overnight, you know that it doesn't keep it fresh.
What I do, put it back into the paper wrapper but then place inside a grocery bag and twist the bag closed and wrap the handles under. This keeps the bread fresh for several days (not that it ever lasts that long).
2. Easy read recipe cards.
Place a fork, handle down into a tall glass - place the recipe card into the tines of the fork - now the recipe is right where you can read it.
3. For kids that don't care for milk.
I warm a glass of milk in the microwave, add a splash of vanilla and a smidgen (1/8 tsp?) sugar - mix and serve. My son loves this treat just before bed. (Make sure kids brush their teeth after the milk, not before).
4. Special coffee.
I drink instant coffee every morning - I don't drink enough to make a pot of real coffee. To make instant special, I add a tsp of hot chocolate poser to my instant coffee. Homemade Cafe mocha!
