      MORE MARLA HUGGINS TIPS

      CONFECTIONERS' SUGAR FROSTING TIP
      To color and flavor confectioners' sugar frosting, add a bit of
      unsweetened powdered drink mix. Orange and lemon are especially
      tasty. Mix in until you get the desired color and flavor. The results
      are delicious!

      BAKING POTATOES TIP
      Potatoes soaked in salted water 20 minutes before baking will bake
      more rapidly

      TIPS ON BUGS
      To keep ants away put either flour, coffee grounds or pepper in cement
      cracks
      Put a fabric softener sheet through your belt loop to keep mosquitoes
      away from you
      Don't have any wasp spray? Spray wasps and bees and hornets with
      cooking oil spray. It immobilizes them and they eventually die
      It is said that if you rub baby oil on your exposes skin like lotion -
      you won't get bitten by mosquitoes
      To keep weevils out of your dry food, place a bay leaf in each
      container.

      TOP TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL BARBECUE
      ALWAYS make sure that the barbecue is on a firm heat-proof surface,
      away
      from buildings, tress fences and anything else that might catch fire.
      NEVER leave the barbecue unattended
      KEEP CHILDREN away from the barbecue area
      ONLY use proper barbecue lighters, NEVER use paraffin, gasoline, white
      spirit or lighter fluid on the barbecue
      LIGHT THE BARBECUE 45 minutes before you start cooking
      USE long handles tongs and oven gloves to avoid burning
      yourself.
      Prepare as much as you can before you start cooking
      Good organization makes for a relaxed barbecue
      Food keeps fresher and cleaner if kept inside until
      needed; keep prepared food covered where possible.
      Lightly brush the cooking rack with a little oil to help
      prevent the food from sticking
      Wooden skewers are great for vegetable kebabs. Soaking
      them in water for 30 minutes stops them from catching fire
      Relax. Wait until the flames die down and a layer of
      ash forms. If you start cooking while the coals are still
      glowing, the food is likely to burn
      Vegetables that don't have a strong flavor benefit from a tasty
      marinade and basting during cooking
      Barbecues do not lend themselves to subtle cuisine
      To prevent your food from becoming overcooked or burned, wrap in foil
      as a protective measure
      Spare a thought for the global environment. Using
      sustainable-produced charcoal reduces the demand for fuel
      made from tropical hardwoods

      REMOVING CARPET STAINS TIP
      To remove stains on a carpet, scrub it with inexpensive shaving cream
      (foam, not gel). Often, the stain will come right out without the
      expensive, harsh chemicals in carpet cleaner. Always test a small
      hidden patch of your carpet first!

      THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BROTH AND CONSOMME
      Broth is usually made from the meat only.
      Consommé is made from the meat and various vegetables or other
      ingredients all boiled and then simmered to allow more flavor and
      nutrition.

      REDUCING YOUR FAT INTAKE TIP

      To reduce your fat intake, sauté foods in wine, fruit
      juice, non-fat cooking spray, or broth rather than in oil.

      ALWAYS A CLEAN DISHCLOTH TIP
      You'll always have a clean dishcloth on hand if you tie it to the
      rack of your dishwasher. It'll get cleaned right along with your
      dishes!
      BAKING IN A GLASS PAN TIP

      When baking in a glass pan, reduce oven temperature by 25ºF.
