LITTLE BUT POWERFUL

July 02, 2020

Little tips make a big difference. Where the best place to store your garbage bags?

There are so many little things that make life easier. It’s the word "little" that is the point here. Whether it is in the kitchen, garden, or when you're entertaining, I find it’s those little tricks you discover or someone shares with you that make life simpler. Those are the things that, once discovered, make me say Wow, and Why didn’t I think of that! 

I not only love discovering new and easy ways to do things but I love sharing them. It feels like I get that moment of discovery all over again.

I’ve started making two-minute videos demonstrating some of these great tips. I also like that I get to spend time finding more tips to pass on—that’s fun.

Here is a tip I was given last summer that I’ve yet to try, but it’s so simple it amazed me:

The Best Way to Butter Corn
Use a tall jar, slightly taller and wider than an ear of corn. Fill it halfway with hot water. Melt a stick of butter* and pour it into the jar with the hot water. Oil and water don’t mix so the butter will rise to the top. When you dip your corn into the water and butter mixture, the butter will stick to the corn and it comes out completely buttered.

Isn’t that easy? I can’t way to try! Thanks, Sam.

*Note—do not use anything but real butter; you don’t want to add any chemicals to the perfect butter mixture you’ve just made.

Here are two videos that I made to start this off.

UNTESTED RECIPES—SO MUCH CAN GO WRONG AND YET...

Last week’s blog post made me think about what other things I do to challenge myself. When cooking, I love to make something I’ve never tried before. I love the challenge and anticipation of what all the ingredients in the recipe will taste like; will I be able to make it and will I learn something I can . . .

After 13 years, Bentley, our dog, got sick. She had a mass in her abdomen and before we could find out exactly what the mass was, she took a turn for the worse. Thanks to an amazing vet, Reinmarie Williman, from Veterinary Care of Mt. Pleasant, who is probably the most caring doctor I have ever met... as a family...
