Martha vs real Women



Martha Stewart

If you accidentally oversalt a dish while it\'s still cooking, drop in a peeled potato and it will absorb the excess salt for an instant \"fix me up.\"

Real Woman

If you oversalt a dish while you are cooking, that\'s too damn bad. Please recite with me, The Real Women\'s motto: \"I made it and you will eat it and I don\'t care how bad it tastes.\"



Martha Stewart

Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.

Real Women

Take a lime, mix it with tequila, etc., chill and drink. You might still have a headache but who cares?



Martha Stewart

Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips.

Real Women

Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for Pete\'s sake. You are probably lying on the couch, with your feet up, eating it anyway.



Martha Stewart

When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won\'t be any white mess on the outside of the cake.

Real Women

Go to the bakery. They\'ll even decorate it for you.



Martha Stewart

Brush some beaten egg white over pie crust before baking to yield a beautiful glossy finish.

Real Women

The Mrs. Smith frozen pie directions do not include brushing egg whites over the crust so I just don\'t do it.



Martha Stewart

If you have a problem opening jars, try using latex dishwashing gloves. They give a non-slip grip that makes opening jars easy.

Real Women

Go ask the very cute neighbor to do it.



And finally, the most important tip....



Martha Stewart

Don\'t throw out all that leftover wine. Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.

Real Women

Wine??????
