UNPOPPED POPCORN BLOWS:
Do you love to pop your own corn instead of the microwave variety? But do you have a lot of un-popped kernels in the end? Well your problem can be solved with a little soak!!! Simply soak your popcorn in water for about 10 minutes… then drain it nice and dry! That extra moisture helps create fluffier popcorn and get less un-popped corn!
SAVE YOUR SHARPIE
Well all have tons of Sharpies and Markers and let’s face it… we are not always diligent and cap them properly so they dry out a bit. Now before you think about chucking them… put a bit of rubbing alcohol in a little dish… place the sharpie tip in the alcohol and let it sit for about 5 minutes and then recap. In about 30 minutes… open it up and 9 out of 10 times it will be writing again!
THE PERFECT PB AND J
Speaking of Sandwiches… bet you are making a ton of PB&J’s lately! No one wants a soggy PB&J either… so here is a little tip on how to keep them from getting squishy! Evenly spread your peanut butter crust to crust on both slices of bread and then add your layer of jelly or jam in the center evenly… and then seal with the other slice. Having peanut butter on both sides kind of forms a seal so the jelly doesn’t leak out through the bread. It especially helpful when you are making the PB&J’s in advance!
