I am going to use this spot to put some of my favorite cooking tips and tricks that don't really warrant going in as a recipe and so I don't lose them!!
Get rid of fruit flies - small dish with vinegar and few drops of dish washing detergent
Whipped Cream ahead of time - line a strainer with cheesecloth or coffee filter - spoon in whipped cream set inside a bowl and put in fridge. Some liquid will drip through but what remains will stay thick - even possibly overnight. Discard the liquid or whip it back into the mix if you want.
Store brown sugar and marshmallows in the freezer - they won't get stale.
If you don't do that add hardened marshmallows to hot applesauce or stewed rhubarb! Delish
Place 2 tbsp of butter in your baking dish and pour it around the dish. Then place the dish in the freezer for a few minutes until hardened. Pour in your batter and bake - the cake will pop right out every time.
I love canned biscuits. You can make so many things with them. Cut a hole and fry - you have a donut. Flatten them - you have a pie crust. Stretch and wrap around hot dogs or little smokies - you have pigs in a blanket. Flatten them, spread with butter and sprinkle on sugar and cinnamon - you have a tasty tea biscuit. Add 1/2 cup of shredded cheese to a can of biscuits then roll thin and cut into small squares, bake till crisp - you have cheesy snack crackers.
To strain broth remove meat and bones. Line a colander with a double layer of cheese cloth and place over bowl.
I always use red potatoes for a potatoe salad as they don't absorb excess dressing or break apart as easily as other varities.

RICE NOTES: 1 cup white rice, 2 cups water = 3 cups cooked rice
Never stir rice while cooking unless the recipe says too - this will make it sticky.
Squeeze lemon juice into cooking water for a great flavor and wonderfully white rice
To seperate grains sauce rice in a bit of oil or butter before adding liquid.
