DairyQueen is asking: (1 answer)
Do you have any favorite kitchen tips you'd like to share? Here's mine: I've had a bag of those Junior Mints in cupboard for months (well, since Christmas). Just baked brownies (box mix), then placed unwrapped Junior Mints over brownies ~~ let it set on counter +/- 5-7 minutes. Spread over brownies! Waiting for them to cool and cut in bars.

Mine would be if iam using a recipe,read from top to bottom to make sure you have all you need.I don't follow recipes often,so sometimes i would start and not have a item.Very annoying.

Sorry should have said hello DairyQueen, how are you?

I will make brownies and then place Jersey Milk Bars side by side on top and leave them to melt. Once they start melting I sprinkle coconut and pecans over top. I finish it off with a good drizzle of caramel topping.

Hi DairyQueen, I've done that with chocolate chips and the Andes mint chips. The junior mints sound really good!

Always make more than you need for dinner and package some for the freezer. Having a homemade meal you can pull out and heat with little effort is like money in the bank.

Another thing I've been doing is instead of using food color in icing or frostings I've sprinkled a bit of jelly powder (any flavor). Its great! Very easy, pretty and takes no time. Tastes good too. My favourite is raspberry right now.

Rosebud,Sound like very good idea. Is jelly powder the same jello powder? If it is the same, what do you with the left over, can you freeze them? I like raspberry frosting.

Jelly or Jello powder is the same. I will buy it in bulk and use it up that way. There is no left over because I just spoon out what I need.

This is something I mostly only do this for my Thanksgiving and Christmas prep. I get all the chopping, slicing, peeling, etc, done the night before. I label it all with what it is, the measurement and for what dish. I even do this with the herbs and spices.

That's weird, I posted that I have a Thanksgiving and Christmas prep routine. But it's gone now. Hmmm...all I do is chop, slice, peel, etc, the night before and then label the containers. The labels contain the name of the dish, what's inside, and the measurements (in case the ingredient is used more than once in the recipe). I said that I do this even for my herbs and spices.
Feb. 12, 2013 3:08 pm I just look like crazy post lady. So sorry. The reason I came back was to tell you when I used to try the emulate the tv chefs, I of course didn't have all those prep bowls that they use, so I would fashion what I needed out of tin foil. I eventually decided that my measuring spoons/cups were easier and less expensive. :)
