Extraordinary Uses For Ordinary Things

Juice a lemon with a microwave - Zap a lemon for 10 seconds to break down the cells and make juice flow faster.

Roll out dough with a wine bottle -Remove the label from an empty, clean round wine or liquor bottle and fill it with cold water. Then cork or cap it.

Use a box grater to puree tomatoes - Place a plate under a box grater. Then place the stem end of the tomato in your palm. Grate against the widest holes while rotating the fruit in a circular motion. The puree falls on the plate while the skin and tomato belly button stay in your hand.

Mince garlic with a can - Wrap peeled garlic and or other spices in tinfoil. Then smash them with a can from the pantry.

Bake omelets in a muffin tin - Coat the tin with cooking spray. Fill each cup with one beaten egg and top with desired ingredients. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes. This is a great way to make personalized omelets for a big group of people.

Use freezer bags for mess free breading - Put flour in one bag, beaten eggs in a second bag, and bread crumbs in a third. Dip foods like shrimp or chicken into each bag-then toss into a fourth bag, close, and shake.
