Let's face it, we all spend alot of time in the kitchen, but, who doesn't like a few tips to make things go a little smoother?!

When baking, how do you tell if your baking powder and baking soda are still good?

Baking powder loses its strength after about 6 months. Test it by stirring a teaspoonful into ? cup of hot water. It should have a lively bubble?if it doesn't, throw it out.

For baking soda?mix a ? cup of vinegar with a teaspoon of baking soda. If it starts to fizz?the baking soda is active.

If your brown sugar is hard?I'm sure you've hear about adding a piece of bread or an apple to soften it up?

Well next time try a soft marshmellow?it looks better and works great!

Save on the cost of cooking sprays?by pouring cooking oil into a spray bottle?voile'?spray oil at a fraction of the cost!

Did you know a standard mayonnaise or mason jar will fit most blenders? It's a perfect way to make frozen drinks and smoothies?and as a plus you can drink right from the jar!

Easy kitchen tips that will save you time and money?I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple!
