Need a:
Tube pan?
Empty a clean metal food can and place it in the center of a deep cake pan…fill the can with beans.

Salad spinner?
Place your wet salad in a pillow case and shake.

Put flour into a salt shaker and use it to flour a pan.

Nuts are sticking together in the food processor.
Fix: Place some sugar from the recipe in with them while processing.

Shortening sticking to the measuring cup.
Fix: If recipe calls for eggs, crack them into measuring cup and add to recipe. Then place shortening into the same cup. It will not stick! Or you could spray the measuring cup with cooking spray before adding shortening.

Brown sugar is hard.
Fix: Place a slice of bread in with it the night before you need it. Or, place it in the microwave for a few seconds until soft.

Ran out of buttermilk.
Fix: For 1 cup of buttermilk: 1/3 cup lemon juice and fill the rest of the cup with milk to equal 1 cup total.

If you need to know if your eggs are fresh:
Place eggs in water. Older eggs will float higher.

If you have extra bananas:
Mash them and freeze in a small plastic bag. This will be great to use later for banana bread!
