How To Keep Kitchen Sponges Fresh

The best way to store your Kitchen Sponge is in a Sponge Caddy like the one in this picture.

Storing Plastic Bags 1

So you took your cake or bread out of the oven and thought everything was fine. It seemed to be done and browned nicely. But…..

As your cake is cooling, the center starts to fall! What could have gone wrong?

You start thinking all sorts of excuses such as maybe the oven temperature was not right, maybe the kids were jumping and made the cake fall, maybe you didn’t mix the cake or bread properly or maybe you even forgot an ingredient.


No More Runny Sour Cream

Sour Cream has a high water content so you will often see it separating in the container.


Pre-Slicing Beef Tip

If your recipe calls for Beef sliced or diced, here is a tip for you:

Cut the beef when it is slightly frozen.  Not rock hard frozen but try slicing it before it totally thaws.

You will find your knife goes through it easily and you can make more perfect pieces.
