1/ *Martha's Way* Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar 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! 2/ *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, keep it in the pantry for up to a year. 3/ *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. 4/ *Martha's Way* If you accidentally oversalt 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 oversalt a dish while you are cooking, that's too bad. Please recite with me the real woman's motto: "I made it and you will eat it and I don't care how bad it tastes!" 5/ *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! 6/ *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. 7/ *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! 8/ *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. 9/ *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 !!!!!!!
