Tuesday's Tip


I just love to cook!!! It is almost 10pm and I realized I am supposed to have dessert for one of the preschool teachers tomorrow. The 2 vegetable dishes will have to be taken care of in the morning, but I pulled together my supplies and just made 2 chocolate chess pies. Thank goodness I had one can of evaporated milk!!!

When baking cakes and pies, you will sometimes fill the pan too full. As the pie cooks or the cake rises, sometimes batter will roll down the side and onto your oven. I have had this happen one too many times. Now I make my pies and place the pans on a cookie sheet and then slide the cookie sheet inside the oven. Any spills will now drip onto the cookie sheet, and not my clean oven! Happy Tuesday's Tip!

I don't cook often, but that's what we do too!

I even use aluminum foil...if it's dirty, I throw it away. If clean, I save it!

Oh I love this tip. This used to happen to me a lot and my mother-in-law told me to do this years ago and I have been doing it ever since.

Good tip! You are one amazing mother, I admire you. I am the lazy Mum who buys from the store which is never as nice. Teachers appreciate the effort!
