Peel a banana from the bottom and you won't have to pick the little "stringy things" off of it.

Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store.  If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster. (really)

Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating.
Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking.

Add a teaspoon of water when frying ground beef.  It will help pull the grease away from the meat while cooking.

Heat up leftover pizza in a non-stick skillet on top of the stove, set heat to med-low and heat unitl warm.  This keeps the crust crispy.  No soggy micro-pizza.

Store your open chunks of cheeses in aluminum foil.  They will stay fresher much longer and not mold.

Hate foggy windshields??? Buy a chalkboard eraser and keep in the glove box.  When the windows fog, rub with the eraser.  It works better than a cloth.

If you seal an envelope and then realize you forgot to include something minside, just place your sealed envelope in the freezer for an hour or two.  It will unseal easily.

The end.

  1. These are awesome tips! I will definitely be using the pepper bumps, because I hate grilling peppers only to have them soggy. And the direction to peel a banana is very helpful as well. Thanks!
