professional ideas from Martha and personal insights from =
WAY #11: Brush some beaten egg white over pie crust before baking =
to yield a beautiful glossy finish.
MY WAY: The =
Mrs. Smith frozen pie directions do not include brushing egg whites =
over the crust and so I don’t do it.
WAY #12: Place a slice of apple in hardened brown sugar to soften =
MY WAY: Brown =
sugar is supposed to be "soft"?
WAY #13: When boiling corn on the cob, add a pinch of sugar to help =
bring out the corn’s natural sweetness.
MY WAY: Wait? =
You can buy corn that is NOT in a can.
WAY #14: To determine whether an egg is fresh, immerse it in a pan =
of cool, salted water. If it sinks, it is fresh, but if it rises to =
the surface, throw it away.
MY WAY: Eat, =
cook, or use the egg anyway. If you feel bad later, you will know =
it wasn’t fresh.
WAY #15: Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half and rub it =
on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.
MY WAY: =
Martha, dear, the only reason this works is because you can’t rub a =
lime on your forehead without getting lime juice in your eye, =
and then the problem isn’t the headache anymore, it is because you =
are now blind.
