Miscellaneous Kitchen Hints

~To help keep peanut butter from sticking to the measuring cup, I first spray the measuring cup with non stick cooking oil. It works great.
~A very easy way to clean up the blender after use is to just add a bit of water and a small squirt of liquid soap. Blend on high for about 15 seconds. Then just rinse.

~One great way to keep baked potato's from rolling around on the baking sheet, is to cook them in a muffin pan. One potato per muffin cup. :)

~Instead of taking the time to finely chop onions or green peppers to add to tuna or mac salad, simply use your grater. It's fast and easy.

~Adding one to two tablespoons of oil to noodles while cooking will help keep them from boiling over, and also keep them from sticking together.

~Dip peeled bananas in lemon juice to keep them from getting brown when they will be used in salads.

the potato idea is cute!! Never heard of it before.

I've always heard of dipping apples in lemon juice, but never bananas. Hmmm...have to try it sometime. :)

Thanks for sharing the neat tips!! :)
