If I’m not outside piddling in the yard, then I’m usually in the kitchen baking, copying down new recipes, or reading a recent email about cooking that my aunt has sent me. Here are 7 tips of my favorite tips to use in the kitchen. I hope you find these tips useful, and possibly even interesting enough to pass on to someone else!
7. Use Baking Soda to Get Burnt Stuff from the Bottom of a Pan

This is a tip I read about many years ago. I couldn’t imagine it working that well, but tried it anyone after scorching some oatmeal. I added about an inch of water and dumped in some baking soda. It’s hard to say how much, since I’m bad about measuring anything. It was probably around an eighth of a cup. After adding the water and baking soda, I let this concoction boil for a few minutes and then turned it off. The charred oatmeal was floating in the pan! If there’s any residue left over, it easily scrapes off with a scrubby after using the baking soda and water mix.
