Simple kitchen tips to save time and money...
Saving time and money are pretty high on most of our priority lists these days! Save a few seconds here and a few cents there...

Before eating a lemon, lime or orange, grate the peel and let it dry. You can use it later in cookies and cakes. Store air-tight in a jar.

If a recipe calls for less evaporated milk than what is in an entire can, use the left over milk for your morning coffee.

Use up your pickle juice... Use it to make homemade salad dressings in place of vinegar or in stuffed eggs in the place of mustard.

After you crimp the edges of your pie crust, with your fingers, lift it up so it does not touch the rim of the pie plate. This will make slicing much easier.

If you need to decorate your cookies in a pinch, put white sugar in a bowl or small glass jar. Add a few drops of food coloring and stir or shake (if in a jar). Sprinkle over your cookies. If you have small jars, you can make up several batches in different colors and keep them on the pantry.

For left over whipped cream, add 2 tbsp. of cocoa powder, pumpkin pie spice or instant jello and whip slowly to combine. Use on pies or in your cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate. You can also use it for dipping fruit.

By using these simple tips, in addition to saving time and money, they will also eliminate wasting any food. Have fun being frugal and economical :)
