Kitchen Tip Tuesday

Howdy ya'll! Yep...still feelin' a little country! ; )

I'm not sure I've shared this here on the blog, but I was chosen to host a Gooseberry Patch Cookbook Preview Party!! I must say I was very excited to receive my very own copy of Slow Cookers, Casseroles & Skillets and a copy to give away at my party!!

If you are a fan of Gooseberry Patch, you'll know that at the bottom of most pages are little decorating, cleaning, or cooking tips. Here are two of my favorite tips that I found while perusing the pages...

"Here's how to check whether a slow cooker is heating to the right temperature. Pour 8 cups of water into the crock, cover and heat on low setting for 8 hours. Uncover and immediately check to water temperature with an instant-read kitchen thermometer. If the slow cooker is working properly, it will read 185 degrees."

If a favorite non-stick skillet has gotten sticky, here's a simple solution. Fill it with one cup water, 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tablespoons baking soda. Bring to a boil for a few minutes. Rinse well with hot water and wipe more stickiness!"

Do ya'll have any kitchen tips you'd like to share?

Do tell!
