Tips

summer treat

summer treat

I have a "Add water only" pancake mix and in the summer, when I don't want to heat up the oven, I sometimes mix up a little, throw in some chocolate chips and walnuts and make a pancake. I think I would prefer to use a cake mix for better results, but can't find one where it only needs water. Properly marketed, this could be a good selling item.


Safe Grating Technique

Safe Grating Technique

Whenever grating chocolate on a cheese grater always hold the chocolate cube with the palm of your hand not your fingertips. Carefully grate the chocolate without grating your hand. This method will protect your finger tips from getting nicked.
