Weekly Tip: Perfect Pudding

The skin that forms on the top of pudding can put a big damper on the finished product. To avoid this problem, place a piece of plastic wrap directly on top of the pudding before you chill it. Once chilled, the plastic will peel right off of the top and you'll have nice, creamy pudding left behind!
This also works very well for pudding pies!

Weekly Tip: Pickle Chip Tip

We are huge pickle lovers in this house. We especially love dill pickle chips on our hamburgers, but they aren't exactly easy for kids to get out of a jar. My boys would stab and stab in that jar with a fork just to have the pickles slide off as they tried to lift them out.
My solutuion? Use a slotted serving spoon! It drains the juice as you lift them out and you get more pickle chips than with a fork!
