    Crisco oil is great…but if you happen to run out of oil, applesauce makes a great alternative 🙂

    Butter flavored Crisco – it’s the best for baking. Use instead of butter or shortening.

    -Something my friend introduced me to is just squeezing left over lemons from baking into ice cube trays and freezing them. It is delicious in water or just to eat if you want something sour.

    We love to have friends over for games and it is so much easier to just serve desserts! Although it sometimes makes for sticky cards. 🙂

    “I love cookies…a little too much. Sometimes, when I feel like being “good” I don’t bake up all the cookies. I will just make one pan of them for our family to enjoy. Then I stick the rest of the cookies dough in the fridge (or freezer) to enjoy later. If I bake them all at once then they call to me from the kitchen counter and I eat way too many!”

    I love to use butter-flavored Crisco shortening for Alton Brown’s “The Puffy” chocolate chip cookie. They are so delicious! 🙂

    I joined the Crisco forum and posted this in response to a question about reheating pizza–

    Try this tip from Cooks Illustrated:
    To reheat cold pizza slices, put them in a large skillet. Turn heat to medium, cover skillet with its lid, and cook the pizza for about 5-6 minutes or until it’s hot and bubbly. Remove the lid, let the pizza cook another minute or so to crisp it a bit, then serve.

    My tip: If you’re going to be rolling out cookies or bread or other goodies (truffles!) into balls, spray your hands lightly with crisco spray beforehand and they are less likely to stick to your hands!

    Another tip is to spray the inside of a measuring cup with crisco spray before measuring something like peanut butter or honey and it will slide right out rather than making you fight with it!

    Angela says:

    For over 10 years, I’ve been designing cakes for friends and family. I always always ALWAYS make my own buttercream, and I use Crisco shortening. Because I make so many specialty cakes, I can’t use butter for “buttercream” because of the yellow color, but because Crisco is white, it’s the perfect alternative. I once tried using a slightly cheaper store brand shortening, and had so many difficulties with the icing that I’ve never used anything but Crisco shortening again.

    I left this “freezing tip” I put my food in a freezer bag, squeeze all the air out, lay flat on a cookie sheet then put in freezer until frozen. When items are frozen you can then remove cookie sheet and you have a nice flat frozen food package. I use this method for hamburger meat, vegetables, soups etc.

    There are not words to describe how much I hate washing dishes. It is the bane of my existence, especially because I am one of those cooks who loves to make intricate dishes which always seem to require the use of every single bowl I own (and I own a LOT of bowls). My mom gave me one of the most-used quick clean up tips that I have, and it has many a time saved my sanity.


    For example- need to sift together dry ingredients before mixing them with the wet? Why dirty a second bowl?! Sift the ingredients on to a sheet of waxed paper, then use the paper to funnel the dry stuff into the wet. Got a bunch of rolled up chicken breasts you need to coat in breadcrumbs before frying? Instead of laying them out on a plate, lay them out on a piece of waxed paper.

    Starting to get the drift?

    It’s cheap, and the only clean up required is to THROW IT AWAY!

    What are you quick, sanity saving clean up tips??
