Here’s a neat trick to save that last bit of wine at the end of the bottle. Freeze it in ice-cube trays, then store the cubes in a freezer bag. Use them in wine coolers and any dish that calls for wine.

Plastic wrap loves to hug itself. Avoid this by keeping the box in the refrigerator. The cold keeps the wrap from sticking to itself.

It’s always a good idea to line the crisper bins of your refrigerator with a few paper towels or sheets of newspaper to absorb excess moisture. Mold spores love moisture, but the towels will keep it away.

If your only using half of a bell pepper for a recipe, make the other half last longer with this simple trick. When you’re slicing the pepper, make sure you leave the seeds and membrane intact on one side. Then store this side in a sealed plastic bag or container in the fridge. Leaving the seeds in tact will make the pepper last longer.

To keep your cooler fresh and odor free, throw in 10-15 charcoal briquettes, close the top, and leave it overnight. In the morning, clean the cooler with soapy water, and it will smell like new.

Though they may be more work than a gas grill, charcoal grills impart an amazing smoky flavor to meats and veggies. Here are a few tips to get the most out of your charcoal grill.

 

* To add flavor to barbecued foods, place dried herbs on the hot coals. Some of our favorites are savory, rosemary, and basil.

 

* If the coals become too hot or flare up, squirt them with water from a mister or bulb baster.

 

* Store charcoal briquettes in airtight plastic bags – they absorb moisture very easily and won’t be as easy to light if exposed to air.

When you cook for a crowd, and your grill isn’t big enough, you can save time by utilizing your oven, too. Place a few layers of hamburgers between sheets of foil on a cookie sheet and bake them in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes. Then throw them on the grill for 5-10 minutes more, and they’ll be fully cooked but still have that grilled taste. Hot dogs may be done the same way, but only bake them for 10 minutes.

Having a dinner party? Here’s a great tip for keeping dinner rolls warm long after they’ve come out of the oven. When you put the rolls in the oven to bake, put a ceramic tile in, too. By the time the rolls are done, the tile will be (Very!) hot. Place it in the basket and put your rolls on top. The tile will keep them warm. You can also use aluminum foil instead of the tile, but it won’t retain the heat as long.
