    Bacon- Minimize bacon shrinkage by running bacon under water before frying.

    Since I don't eat bacon I am wondering if this works:)

    I don't eat it much anymore, but I know that having water on it will make it splatter like mad!

    combine 1 cup corn meal
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    4 teaspoons baking powder.

    You can store it in a tightly covered container for up to 6 months.

    The best way to store fresh celery is to wrap it in aluminum foil and put it in the refrigerator--it will keep for weeks.

    Rescue stale or soggy chips and crackers: Preheat the oven to
    300F. Spread the chips or crackers in a single layer on a
    baking sheet and bake for about 5 minutes. Allow to cool,
    then seal in a plastic bag or container.

    A dampened paper towel or terry cloth brushed downward on a cob of
    corn will remove every strand of corn silk.
