It seems that I've had a few gems given to me lately and I've shared a few of my own too. I've discovered that each family seems to have a few "tips and tricks" that they take for granted because they've "always done it that way" and they thought that "everyone did it that way." :)
If you have a tip or trick that makes everyday life a little easier, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll one each week!
Use a pizza cutter to slice pancakes, waffles and even sandwhiches into bite-sized pieces for little kids. It cuts fast and doesn't tear the bread or pancake like a knife does. (Slice before drizzling with syrup.)
