Be careful where you store chocolatePublished 8:17pm Wednesday, April 3, 2013
Chocolate hints: Never store chocolate around garlic, onions or spices, because it absorbs the flavors of these items.
Beauty tip: Use baking soda to clean your fingernails.
Cleaning hint: Sprinkle baking soda on a damp cloth, using circular motions to clean the glass on your oven door.
Removing odor from hands: Rub your hands with fresh lemon juice to get rid of fish and onion odor.
Sweet and sour green beans
1 can green beans
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon of margarine or butter
Drain beans, reserve liquid. Add vinegar, sugar and the reserved liquid. Bring to a boil. Mix flour with cold water to make a paste. Add gradually to hot liquid, stirring until slightly thickened. Add margarine or butter. Put beans into a container, cover with hot liquid and cool. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Heat before serving.
1 1/2 pounds red potatoes, cooked and diced
3 boiled eggs, sliced
3 small sweet pickles, sliced
1 1/4 cup mayonnaise
Combine all ingredients and mix well.
1 can kraut
1/4 cup cooking oil
1 or 2 pimentos
Heat all ingredients. Serve hot as a vegetable or chill for a salad.
2 packages frozen broccoli, cooked
1 jar of chopped pimento
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
Blend all ingredients and cook, except the breadcrumbs. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 or 30 minutes. Spread bread crumbs on top.
Cooking hint: Whenever cooking cabbage or broccoli put a little vinegar into the water to help to absorb the odor or put two pecans in the shells into the water. This works, because I have tried it.
Cheese tip: Let cheese stay at room temperature before eating it.
