good to know} When cooling cake layers, place bread slices on top to keep the cake layers soft and moist while the bread becomes hard as a rock -- What a fun fact!!! My mom told me it keeps it from cracking in the middle too!


Do you have any helpful kitchen tips to share?!

Bananas
Peel a banana from the bottom and you won't have to pick the little "stringy
things" off of it. That's how the primates do it.

Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store. If you leave them
connected at the stem, they ripen faster.

Bananas freeze easily-leave the skin on and put them in a zip-lock bag, then into the freezer. The skin will turn black-don't worry-they're fine. Leave them on the counter for about 15 minutes to soften, then peel, and the fruit will slip right out and as so easy to mash to put into banana bread or other goodies. They're also great in smoothies-you don't thaw even them

Never used bread and my cake layers are always soft and never cracked down the middle.

Spray the inside of microwave Tupperware when putting red sauces, etc and it reduces staining and warping.
Wrapping a cookie sheet in foil, then spraying with cooking spray before baking/broiling really saves on clean up and time.
