Tips From my Parents’ Kitchen II

1a. Leftovers can make a meal. Cold baked beans, for instance, are perfectly acceptable to eat the next day without any reheating necessary. I’ve never actually had the desire to try it, but I’ve seen it done more times than I can count. Give it a shot.

1b. This leftovers technique is especially true after a party, usually a birthday party. Breakfast the next morning should always consist of leftover pizza, birthday cake, or both.

2. When frying greasy things, use metal tongs to grip a folded paper towel and mop up the grease as you cook. It seems like more work perhaps, but apparently it keeps grease from splattering all over your stove. If you’re not the individual that has to clean up after the meal, disregard what I just said.

3. When baking frozen cookies (we always used these Tollhouse cookies) preheat the oven to the temperature given in the package’s instructions. Next, eat the little frozen cubes of dough. If you haven’t eaten them all, put whatever’s left in the oven for the recommended time; otherwise, don’t forget to turn the oven off.
