Muffin Tin Stuffing

Stuffing - Muffin

Serving stuffing at your holiday table? Break out the muffin tins! Create single serving “stuffin’ muffins” that have lots of crispy edges. Perfect for the kids’ table, plus they’re easy to store and reheat.

Fall-Scented Jack-O-Lanterns

Pumpkin - Lantern

Before you place a candle inside your Jack-O-Lantern, coat the lid with spices such as ground cinnamon, nutmeg, or pumpkin pie spice. The heat of the candle will warm the spices and send a delicious scent through the air.

Keep Mother’s Day Flowers Fresh

Floral design - Flower bouquet

If you receive fresh cut flowers for Mother’s Day, remove any plastic wrapping and immediately cut the stems at an angle with a sharp knife, about 1-2 inches from the bottom, then place them in fresh water. The angle cut allows the stems to absorb water better.

Tape Saver

Dentistry - Tooth

Packing tape is notoriously known for losing its end and causing much frustration. Try putting a penny or a bread clip under the end of the tape when finished using it. This should help you find the end easier next time.

Set An Easy-To-Clean Kids’ Table

Colored pencil - Crayon

Use kraft paper or butcher paper to cover the kids’ table at Thanksgiving, and set out crayons and markers for them to draw and be creative. It keeps them busy and makes clean up a snap!

Combat Red Wine Stains

Leather - Skin

To get stubborn red wine stains out of table cloths, combine equal parts liquid dish soap and hydrogen peroxide in a bowl. Sponge or pour the mixture over the stain and let stand for a minute to pre-soak. Gently blot until the stain can no longer be seen. Then launder as usual.

Use Your Slow Cooker as a Warmer

Slow Cooker - Cooker

Cooks know that on Thanksgiving Day, oven space is limited. So rather than take up space trying to keep your mashed potatoes warm, transfer them to your slow cooker and keep it on Low. You can even bring the ceramic insert right to the table when it’s time to eat!

Remove Candle Wax Easily

Wax Paper - Candle

To remove candle wax from candlesticks, tablecloths or clothing, simply pop the item into the freezer for about 30 minutes. The wax will flake off easily.
