Kitchen Wisdom: Martha Stewart vs. Maxine

Martha Stewart Vs. Maxine
Martha ~ Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of an ice cream cone to prevent ice cream drips
Maxine ~ 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 ~ To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.
Maxine ~ Buy Hungry Jack mashed potato mix. Keeps in the pantry for up to a year.

Martha ~ 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 ~ Go to the bakery! Hell, they'll even decorate it for you!

Martha ~ 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 ~ 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 ~ Wrap celery in aluminum foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.
Maxine ~ Celery? Never heard of it!

Martha ~ Brush some beaten egg white over pie crust before baking to yield a beautiful glossy finish.
Maxine ~ The Mrs. Smith frozen pie directions do not include brushing egg whites over the crust, so I don't.

Martha ~ Cure for headaches: take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.
Maxine ~ Take a lime, mix it with tequila, chill and drink! All your pains go away!

Martha ~ If you have a problem opening jars, try using latex dish washing gloves.
Maxine ~ They give a non-slip grip that makes opening jars easy. Go ask that very cute neighbor if he can open it for you..

Martha ~ Don't throw out all that leftover wine. Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.
Maxine ~ Leftover Wine?????? HELLO!!!!!!! (My sentiments EXACTLY!!)
Hope these little tidbits help while you are all preparing for Thanksgiving...
Until next time..... Lorie
