Default Martha Stewart's Way .. Maxine's Way

Martha's Way; Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips.
Maxine's Way; Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for Pete's sake! You are probably lying on the couch with your feet up eating it, anyway!

Martha's Way; To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.
Maxine's Way; Buy Hungry Jack mashed potato mix and keep it in the pantry for up to a year.

Martha's Way; When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the outside of the cake.
Maxine's Way Go to the bakery! They'll even decorate it for you.

Martha's Way; If you accidentally oversalt a dish while it's still cooking, drop in a peeled potato and it will absorb the excess salt for an instant "fix-me-up."
Maxine's Way; If you oversalt a dish while you are cooking, that's too bad. Please recite with me the real woman's motto: "I made it and you will eat it and I don't care how bad it tastes!"

Martha's Way; Wrap celery in aluminum foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.
Maxine's Way; Celery? Can I get it in a drive through somewhere? Never heard of it!

Martha's Way; Brush some beaten egg white over pie crust before baking to yield a beautiful glossy finish.
Maxine's Way; The Mrs. Smith frozen pie directions do not include brushing egg whites over the crust so I don't.

Martha's Way; Cure for headaches: take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.
Maxine's Way; Take a lime, mix it with tequila, chill and drink!

Martha's Way; If you have a problem opening jars, try using latex dishwashing gloves. They give a non-slip grip that makes opening jars easy.
Maxine's Way; Go ask that very cute neighbor if he can open it for you.

and my favorite, including Mrs Y2C
Martha's Way; Don't throw out all that leftover wine. Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.
Maxine's Way; Leftover wine???????? HEL-LO !!!!!

I'm on the other side of the coin. I like Martha. I'll have to try the celery and foil thing and the baked potato to absorb salt.

Take care,
Mike

Maxine is a trademark of Hallmark's Shoebox greeting cards, usually attired in fuzzy bunny slippers, with her hair in curlers and a scowl on her face. She's a rough looking character, but very funny and makes alot of sense. Far more realistic than ol' Martha!

All excellent, and very funny, however the lovely Mrs. likes the one about the "leftover wine" the best. Maybe because she's Italian???????
