Tips For Homemakers | Frankie’s Food and Homemaking Tips Tips For Homemakers Frankie’s Food and Homemaking Tips Menu Skip to content Home About Contact Secret to Best Brownies Leave a reply I am not talking about the best brand either. I have been told quite often that I make the best brownies and I am asked why mine are so good. I truly believe the secret is to not overcook the brownies. I actually take my brownies out of the oven when they are still a little gooey. If I stick my toothpick in and it comes out a little wet, then I know they are done. I think they must cook a little bit more when you take them out anyway. I actually put a little of the vanilla pudding in my brownies this time. I know it adds so much moisture to my cakes that I am thinking it might be good in brownies, too. I have also put the vanilla pudding in my pancakes and that works great, too.

Keeping kitchen trash can smelling good Leave a reply I clean my plastic kitchen trash can every week or so by bleaching it and sitting it outside on the porch to air dry. Often onion peels make my trash can smell rather strong and the smell seems to absorb into the trash can even after the trash has been taken out. So, between times of bleaching or scrubbing clean, I put a dryer sheet in the bottom of the can before adding the new trash bag. I buy 50 Breezy “fresh linen” dryer sheets for a buck at the Dollar Tree. This entry was posted in Cleaning on February 3, 2016 by Frankie. Vaseline keeps the ants away Leave a reply I set up our Hummingbird feeder on one of those metal poles (Shepherd’s Staff, I think they are called) and was pleased to see the little birds sipping away at the sweet water. When i went to clean the feeder and refill the liquid, I noticed there were tiny ants in the remaining water inside the bottle as well as all along the pole. So I loaded the pole with Vaseline just before the curve started where the feeder hung. I smeared about three inches up on the pole. Worked like a charm! Now if I could just figure out a way to get rid of those carpenter bees that keep making holes on our wooden deck. They hover a lot so I just keep swatting them with a fly swatter and killing them.

Windex to get flies out of windows Leave a reply Those sneaky flies get inside the house and automatically hide in the windows that have venetian blinds. Trying to pull back the blinds and not let the fly escape is a problem. Plus, it is easy to damage the blinds. My solution: spray Windex on the fly between the blinds. It doesn’t kill the fly but it stuns it and it often falls to the bottom of the window. Then I take a paper towel and squash it. Sometimes you have to chase the fly around in the window with a couple shots of spray. This entry was posted in Misc. Tips on July 15, 2015 by Frankie. Keeping your oven clean Leave a reply I love to cook roasts in the oven at 200 degrees for at least 6 hours to ensure I have a tender piece of meat. I add the potatoes, onions and carrots after about 2 hours. I put about an inch of water in the glass pan and cover with aluminum foil. So, what kept happening was the condensation rose and ran down the outside of the pan and then dripped onto the bottom of the oven. To solve that problem, I made a well by running my fingers along the inside of the entire pan edge. That way, the aluminum was down about a quarter inch or so and made the condensation drip back into the pan. My smoke detector is very close to my oven and the least bit of smoke would set it off. The drippings dirtied my oven and set off my alarm. This entry was posted in Baking/Cooking, Cleaning on May 18, 2015 by Frankie. Saving money on dish detergent Leave a reply I have a dishwasher, much to my dismay. I hate dishwashers, but that is another subject. I previously had a 99 cent (12 ounce) bottle of Dawn that seems to be diluted down. I decided to buy the (24 ounce) Ultra Dawn for $2.50 on sale. My mom, who is 91, thinks more is better and likes to squirt about a tablespoon of detergent on a coffee cup to clean it and then use about a gallon of water to rinse it. lol So, I decided to use the diluted Dawn which was less expensive. Once it was empty, I put about 6 ounces of the Ultra Dawn in the 12 ounce bottle and filled the rest with water. I now can make 4 bottles of the 99 cent size for $2.50 instead of the $3.96 it would have cost buying each 12 ounce bottle individually. This entry was posted in Cleaning on May 18, 2015 by Frankie. Moist cakes Leave a reply Again, I love all that I learn on the u-tube videos. I am not a person who makes cakes from scratch. Cake mixes are pretty cheap and so handy. I always buy when the cake mixes are on sale for under a dollar. The IGA brand is just as good and they are usually 89 cents. Even the generic Walmart or Foodlion brands are even better once you doctor them up with the butter and vanilla pudding mix. So after reviewing many u-tube videos, this is my suggestion to you to make even moister cakes. Use butter instead of the vegetable oil. Just substitute the exact measurement of butter for the oil. My other suggestion is add about an ounce or so of vanilla pudding mix to your batter and beat it longer. Even if you are using a pudding in the cake mix, still add it. So, now your batter is thicker and you actually get about 4 more cupcakes (in my case case.) I seldom make cakes because with two of us, the cake gets dried out before we eat it all. Plus, you can freeze the cupcakes before you ice them after you let them cool. Keeps us from eating all 24-28 of them in a day or two. No dishes or silverware to clean up either when eating a cupcake. I love the butter cream frosting, too. Also, not homemade but in the container. I have plenty of time to experiment and make my own frosting but I really like the taste and I would rather spend my time canning or dehydrating or vacuum sealing foods. We all have priorities.

Cleaning shower curtain Leave a reply I usually just buy a cheap clear shower curtain and replace it when I see it doesn’t look fresh and clean anymore, and then recycle the old one. By recycling I mean, I use it as a mat for my husband to lie on the ground working on our riding lawn mower or covering our well after insulating it or something like that. After cleaning my claw foot tub, I noticed the bottom of the shower curtains looked kind of orange-looking along the seam. I was thinking darn, I have to buy two curtains or take them down and wash them. This I have done before by adding bleach or Oxiclean to the water. Noticing that only the seam really looked bad, I decided to fill the tub with warm water and add the oxiclean to the tub water thus saving me the time of taking them down, washing and rehanging them. It worked perfectly. I buy the generic oxiclean from the Dollar Tree and honestly, it works great. It also made my bathroom smell nice and fresh.

I never do anything exactly the way I read/see how to do things but my chips turned out great. My picky 91 year old mom with dentures even enjoyed them ALOT! I often have a sandwich for lunch and had been wanting some Lays potato chips for weeks but they weren’t on sale (2 for 4.29) so I didn’t buy any. I bought a bag for 2.88 at Walmart. While eating the chips, I was looking at the 10 ounce bag and thinking about that price of 4.29 for 10 ounces versus the 3.99 for my last purchase of a 5 pound bag of potatoes. So, I peeled the medium sized potato and then thin sliced it with the potato peeler. You could also use a grater that has the slicer. I knew there was no way I could thin slice the potato with a knife. Then you want to wash then really well with cold water to remove the starch. One guy said to refrigerate for an hour. Just peel the potato slices into the bowl of cold water and rinse a few times. It worked just fine. Make sure you thoroughly dry the potatoes. Water in grease can splatter. Let your oil heat up in a frying pan. I used vegetable oil but another person suggested canola oil. I used the setting between high and medium. Drop one thin potato in the oil and if it bubbles up around the potato, drop more in. I just cooked one thin layer at a time. I didn’t flip them over but pushed them down a few times. Once you see the edges turn a little brown, remove the chips. It took less than 2 minutes, I believe. Drain on paper towel to remove excess oil. Salt or add any spice you prefer. One medium sized potato made enough chips for at least one person and maybe two, unless you are a big eater. Lol. They were delicious warm.

Disaster Prepping or Hurricane Season Leave a reply Well, hurricane season is upon us and remembering the rule ” a gallon of water per person per day” got me thinking. I am a frugal person in a lot of areas in my life and buying a gallon of water for each person for three days was about $9.00. That is for drinking. And to be safe, I want to buy enough for a week…thus, $21 more or less. Store in a dark, cool place. You could refrigerate one and then after using three, purchase more. It is good to rotate your food and water. But that isn’t water for washing dishes, brushing teeth and bathing. In a real emergency, we might need that on hand, just in case. I started saving my juice bottles and filled them with water and stored them away, too. My mother drinks a lot of prune juice, I love orange juice and my husband is a big fan of tomato juice. That is at least three containers a week. You could also save your two liter soda bottles or recycle your gallon water bottles. I also store 2 one gallon containers of chlorine bleach with my (juice) water bottles. I read that 16 drops of bleach will kill germs in water and I think I would do that as a precaution even if I were washing dishes or brushing my teeth with the bottled water I filled myself. I have also ordered some long term storage food that keeps for 25 years….enough to last for a week or so. It is dehydrated/freeze dried so it needs water, too. I was given a butane cooking stove (like for camping) that I can use on my kitchen counter for making a pot of coffee with my glass percolator and even heat a can of soup, etc. A gas grill with a burner on the side would be great, too but I haven’t purchased one of them, yet. I plan to make that purchase at the end of the summer when the grills go on sale. We aren’t much for grilling out so it isn’t a priority for us. But, the best thing to do, since long term storage foods can be costly is to get a plastic tub and fill with emergency foods. That way it will be easy to move with you if you have to relocate. The most important part of your emergency food/water storage is to rotate the items. Make sure you put foods in the tub that you and your family eat on a regular basis so you can rotate it out. I would suggest cereal/oatmeal, dried fruit or canned fruit for breakfast. I have the long term storage milk which by the way, Augason’s Morning Moo is very tasty. Canned hams that keep for years are about 3.29 for a pound at Walmart. Also, a good breakfast food if you are fortunate enough to have eggs to go with them. You can also buy dehydrated eggs. Who knew? As far as drinks go: powdered milk, coffee, kool-aid with sugar for the kids, lemonade packets that you add to a bottle of water is great. Soups are handy for lunches and even ramen noodles though I haven’t eaten them myself. A can of soup (like sirloin tips with vegetables) over a bowl of rice makes a filling meal. Canned potatoes and vegetables are easy to rotate out. I love the candied yams so I keep a good supply of them. As far as meats go, just look down the isle at the grocery store and look for as many meats that your family will eat. Variety is great. We like the ham and the roast beef in gravy. ALWAYS check expiration dates. I write on top of the can the month and year with a marker so it is easily readable. It may seem like a lot of trouble but if you have an emergency, you will be glad you took the time to prepare. Running to the grocery store at the last minute may mean you will forget important items as well as the cupboards may be bare at the grocery store right before a hurricane. We couldn’t find the small butane bottles for our stove before hurricane Arthur came our way this year. I remember the horrible pictures of the disaster when Katrina hit Biloxi/New Orleans. I can only imagine how awful it would feel to lose your home and then to not even know how you were going to get food for your family. One last suggestion, add some comfort foods to your emergency food storage. Hot chocolate, hard candy, chocolate and perhaps gum will add a little joy to your lives. One last thing: flashlights, batteries, matches and a first aid kit are essential to feeling really prepared. Good luck and be prepared. This entry was posted in Misc.
