Tips For The Week!

Alison’s Tip

Knives are your most important tools in the kitchen and are definitely neglected.  Here are some great tips on taking proper care of your knives;

  • Hand wash your knives- never put them in the dishwasher.  The dishwasher is too harsh and will destroy your knives- always wash,hand dry them, and place them away.
  • Avoid using your knife to scrape up ingredients after you finished chopping- I know, I do this all the time and it scratches and dulls the blade.  Either turn the knife around and use the dull edge or use a scraper.
  • Sharpen regularly- It is always recommended to have your knives sharpened professionally at a specialty store, but in between you can sharpen them at home- here is a quick, easy video on how to sharpen your knives at home.

It is Super Bowl Sunday! If you are planning on hosting a party or just want to have some time to enjoy the game yourself, you need to keep the kids busy. A craft table is a quick and easy way to keep the children distracted while you enjoy the game. Another cute idea is Super Bowl Bingo. Create a bingo card with different things seen during the football game and commercials. It is a great way to keep the kids engaged and entertained. Have fun tonight and be safe!

Don’t know what to get your significant other for Valentine’s day, I love this idea. Create 12 pre-arranged and pre-paid dates. Wrap each one up in a package and tie them all together. Since it is already paid for, it forces you to take a much needed break from the grid of life and enjoy your significant other.
