Christmas Cooking Hacks And Helpful Cooking Hacks……

It’s that time of year we start planning Christmas Dinner if you haven’t started thinking about it already. OK, I got curious on how to save money and time and found some good hacks I didn’t even and just had to share. These hacks are from Reader’s Digest so they are really good. The hacks are below with photos.

1.) Tackle two recipes with one dough Have someone who wants cookies; and someone who wants pie, but you certainly don’t have time to make both. Making pie crust takes a lot of time and patience, so store-bought cookie dough can be swapped in for an easier alternative. Simply Press the softened dough into a pie dish, bake it, then add your favorite no-bake filling like cream or fruit.

2.) Have someone who can’t eat buttermilk or sour cream or you don’t have the ingredients and you need an alternative?  Here’s what you can do. See below.

Make a buttermilk or sour cream alternative – – – If your recipe calls for a cup of buttermilk or sour cream —but they’re nowhere to be found in your fridge—take 1 tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice, then add enough milk to equal 1 cup.

3.) Keep Your Cookies Soft.

Need to keep your cookies soft now that you have them baked? Here’s a simple way to do that. See below.

Who likes hard cookies? I know I don’t and neither does Santa Claus. To ensure maximum cookie freshness, store them in a container with a slice of white bread, half of an apple, or an orange peel. The cookies will absorb moisture, keeping them softer longer.

A Simple Cooking Life Hack

I follow some good blogs and sometimes they share things that makes your life simpler. Today I was reading one of my book blogs and Romance Authors, Marcella Swann Romance and Marcella shared this Life Hack that makes holding a cookbook and some room in your kitchen and it’s a clever idea. For all I know some of you may have tried it all ready. 

What is this clever cooking life hack? It’s a pants hanger. You hang your cookbook up with the pants hanger and hang it up on one of your cupboards above your countertop. Pretty cool and neat hah? I thought so.
