There's an easier way Martha Stewart!

Don't you just love Maxine? *Martha's Way* Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of an ice cream cone to prevent ice cream drips. *Maxine's Way * Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for Pete's sake! You are probably lying on the couch with your feet up eating it, anyway! *Martha's Way* To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.
*Maxine's Way* Buy Hungry Jack mashed potato mix. Keeps in the pantry for up to a year. *Martha's Way* When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the outside of the cake.
*Maxine's Way* Go to the bakery! They'll even decorate it for you. *Martha's Way* If you accidentally over salt a dish while it's still cooking, drop in a peeled potato and it will absorb the excess salt for an instant 'fix-me-up.'
*Maxine's Way* If you over salt a dish while you are cooking, that's too bad. Please recite with me the real woman's motto: 'I made it, you will eat it and I don't care how bad it tastes!' *Martha's Way* Wrap celery in aluminum foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.
*Maxine's Way* Celery? Never heard of it! *Martha's Way* Brush some beaten egg white over pie crust before baking to yield a beautiful glossy finish.
*Maxine's Way* The Mrs. Smith frozen pie directions do not include brushing egg whites over the crust, so I don't. *Martha's Way* Cure for headaches: take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.
*Maxine's Way* Take a lime, mix it with tequila, chill and drink! 'All' your pains go away. *Martha's Way* If you have a problem opening jars, try using latex dishwashing gloves. They give a non-slip grip that makes opening jars easy.
*Maxine's Way* Go ask that very cute neighbor if he can open it for you. *Martha's Way* Don't throw out all that leftover wine. Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.
*Maxine's Way* Leftover wine??????????? HELLO !!!!!!!
Personally?  I thought the tip about celery and the potato to absorb salt were quite useful.  I already knew the one about the lime, but I prefer Vodka, as everyone well knows by now.

I didn't know that about the celery. I'll have to try that one! Love Maxine's cure for headaches. LOL

If I wrap my celery in foil, I will never remember that I have celery!
But most of all, I adore Maxine. Go look at my "cartoons that crack me up" page. She's there. :)
