We know how busy life can get—kids, work, family, friends … sometimes just getting dinner on the table is a Herculean feat! So in an effort to save our readers some time, effort, and money here are a few tips, tricks, and hacks that might come in handy in your busy world!
Bacon pancakes. Fry your bacon
and set aside; then when ready, put back in pan and pour your pancake batter around the bacon … the perfect any-time-of-day treat!
Easy oven potatoes potatoes. Cut slits
across the potatoes by taking two wooden spoons or two chopsticks and place them either side of the potato, so you don’t accidentally cut too far down. Brush the potatoes with a mixture of olive oil, garlic, and rosemary (making sure it gets in between the slices). Bake at 425 degrees for 1 hour.
Toaster or waffle iron to warm pizza pizza. Turn your toaster on its side and slide the pizza slices in, cheese facing up. For waffle iron, fold your pizza over so crust is outside and press. Although the microwave is not the best way to warm pizza, a cup of hot water in with your pizza will prevent it from becoming too dry.
Add lemon or lime soda to a vase of cut flowers to help them
last longer. The lemon/ lime juice reduces the pH level in the water, and the sugar provides nutrients for the cut flowers and keeps them smelling sweet too! It doesn’t matter if the soda is fresh or flat since carbonation does not play a role.
Store milk in the lower back of fridge fridge; that is the coldest part of the refrigerator thus it will keep longer. w
