Which got me thinking, what other kitchen tips and trick am I missing? Here is what I found:

One of my favorite kitchen tips is something I haven’t blogged about, so I did a search to see if someone else had and I came up empty.

I use an apple slice, but it isn’t as pretty, so I will definitely be doing this from now on!
