Thursday Tip: The Just After Midnight Edition

It's technically Thursday, though I still think of this as Wednesday since I haven't gone to bed. I figured I would go ahead and post a tip so I won't forget tomorrow. (Please keep sending me tips, by the way--I love them!) This one is from Erica and if I'd only had it years ago, I would have saved so many burners from extinction.

When boiling potatoes, rub butter (or even the butter wrapper) around the rip of the pot to keep it from boiling over with the starchy foam. Does this work with pasta, I wonder? Erica, let me know!

I am always boiling things over on the stove, which is why, anytime I turn on a burner, it smells like something is on fire in my kitchen. This is a tip I'm excited to try. And did anyone else try the baking soda in the hair? I keep forgetting, but plan to do it this week. If I have time to shower, that is...

  1. Yes it works for pasta and you can also use a touch of olive oil (or any oil for that matter. We're just olive oil people.). Dip your finger in the oil and rub it around the rim of the pot. No boiling over!
