                                                Reheat Pizza

Heat up leftover pizza in a nonstick skillet on top of the stove, set heat to med-low and heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy. No soggy micro pizza. I saw this on The Cooking Channel and it really works.

                                                                                Easy Deviled Eggs

Put cooked egg yolks in a zip lock bag. Seal, mash till they are all broken up. Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep mashing it up mixing thoroughly, cut the tip of the baggy, squeeze mixture into egg. Just throw bag away when done for an easy clean up.

                                                                               Expanding Frosting

When you buy a container of cake frosting from the store, whip it with your mixer for a few minutes. You can double it in size. You get to frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount. You also eat less sugar and calories per serving.

                                                                 Reheating refrigerated bread

To warm biscuits, pancakes, or muffins that were refrigerated, place them in a microwave with a cup of water. The increased moisture will keep the food moist and help it reheat faster.

to freshen french loaf that has gone dry over night, wrap in a damp towel and leave for half an hour or so and then bake.  It really works...

Good idea.  I love French bread, I could eat the whole loaf at once and nearly have.

Okay, just to answer catsmeow I will change the theme, just for him.

                                                                            Newspaper weeds away

Start putting in your plants, work the nutrients in your soil. Wet newspapers, put layers around the plants overlapping as you go cover with mulch and forget about weeds. Weeds will get through some gardening plastic they will not get through wet newspapers.

It works even better if you wrap the bread in a damp paper towel as well.

Cutting cloth?  Don't bother with ordinary scissors.  Go to Sears and get a pair of utility cutters.  They kind of look like overgrown scissors.  And they go through denim like butter.

                                         Broken Glass

Use a wet cotton ball or Q-tip to pick up the small shards of glass you can't see easily.
