That is a good idea WendyMarie will have to do that but save them and take to church for "take homes" after Fellowships. That would have come in handy today

No More Burned RiceTo stop rice from getting crisp

To stop rice from getting crispy, shape a sheet of aluminum foil into a ring that fits on your electric burner. Make sure the ring is an even thickness so the pot rests flat. Diffusing the burner's heat output will keep the starch at the lowest simmer keeping it from over cooking.

Do as the pastry chefs do and lightly sift confectioner's sugar over the dessert and rim of the plate. For special occasions, sprinkle a light trail of cocoa around the edge of the plate before dusting with sugar.....

I did that yesterday Happy, I had visitors for afternoon tea, I grabbed 1/2 a cake out of the freezer, sliced (defrosts quicker) When defrosted I placed slices on a plate and dusted as the cake had no icing and looked pretty plain!
It's wonderful when you know the little treats the chefs use!

Cream cold butter and sugar instantly

Instead of microwaving the cold butter to soften, microwave the sugar for 1 minute. The heated granules will quickly soften the butter when the two are creamed together.

At the last school party my dd went to for her 8 year old she notice that cupcakes were no longer a big hit. She noticed they were only half eaten or just the icing was licked off. Then next party she went to for her 6 year old she made pretzel treats. They were a big hit and the kids didn't eat many cupcakes that were also there..........Arrange small pretzels on a baking sheet and place a candy kiss in the middle of each one. Bake 2 minutes at a 350-degree oven. Remove from oven and place 1 M&M in the middle of each pretzel.....Refrigerate until chocolate is set.....This party was for Halloween and brown and orange M&M's were used, you can use red and green for Christmas........

When baking a cake instead of greasing and flouring your cake tin, grease and sprinkle coconut on the edges to stop it sticking.
For a chocolate cake, grease and sprinkle cocoa down the sides.

To keep ur pound cake from drying out store the leftovers in an airtight container along w an apple slice that has been spritzed w lemon juice to ward off browning....

Revive A Stale Baguette

To restore a hard and stale baguette rub an ice cube over the top of the loaf until the crust is damp. Put the bread in a 375* oven for 10 minutes. The moisture will seep into the crust and create steam that will soften the loaf.
Can add any flavor to the ice cubes for a terrific taste.

Happy face

Sueanne, good idea. I never thought of an ice cube.. I've dampend them with water & covered with foil before to revive them.
