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.

MY HONEST REVIEW
I thought this was a good time travel viking Romance story was fantastic. I wasn’t sure what to expect and I knew what I thought of my last time travel book read and that wasn’t much. I was very happy when this time travel book was the exact opposite and was a page turner.
I really liked how Donna who is from the 21st century goes back to viking time to teach the Viking men and Alpha-Males that woman can do important jobs and they can be depended on and not just for cooking, cleaning, warming the man’s bed and being a servant to a man. Back in her time in the 21st century she’s a lawyer and is trying to teach the men a lesson back home too. One problem and that is that Donna’s weakness is falling in love with Alpha-Males. Can she do it? Read the book to find out. Do I recommend this book? You bet I do. I look forward to the other books in the series.
MY RATING FOR THIS BOOK
📚📚📚📚📚📚/📚📚📚📚📚(TRANSLATED 6 STARTS/5 STARS) That’s Excellent.
