Ladies vs. real women
Ladies - If you accidentally over-salt 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 over-salt 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."
Ladies - Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut
half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will
Real Woman - Take a lime, mix it
with tequila, chill and drink. You might still have the headache, but who
Ladies - Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom
of a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips.
Real Woman - Just suck the ice cream out of
the bottom of the cone, for Pete's sake. You are probably lying

Ladies - To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple
in the bag with the potatoes.
Real Woman - Buy boxed mashed potato mix and keep
it in the pantry for up to a year.
Ladies - When a cake recipe calls for flouring the
baking pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and

Real Woman - Go to the bakery-they'll even decorate
it for you.
Ladies - Brush some beaten egg white over pie
crust before baking, to yield a beautiful glossy finish.

brushing egg whites over the crust, so I just
don't do it.
Ladies - If you have a problem opening jars, try using
latex dishwashing gloves. They give a non slip grip
that makes opening jars easy.
Real Woman - Go ask the very cute neighbor guy
to do it.
And finally the most important tip....
Ladies - Don't throw out all that leftover wine. Freeze into
ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.
Real Woman - Leftover wine??
