A Helpful Kitchen Tip

When cooking french fries in the oven, line the cookie sheet with a piece of aluminum foil that you have wrinkled up, then loosely flattened back out.

This will help the fries cook and brown more evenly and they come off easier as well!













Yes, I am indeed too lazy to write a real post tonight.

Okay I may be a huge dork but this is actually really helpful. I always line my pan with foil but I have never thought to wrinkle it. It should totally make them crispier cause then the air can get under them.

YES, I've often lined my pan with foil but never crinkled. The result being a nice, charred inedible layer at the bottom of the food. Perhaps the crinkle effect will minimize the burnt layer.

Also, to enhance the non-stickiness, you can spray a fine layer of PAM on the foil.

Another tip for home coffee brewers. After putting the filter in the basket, soak it with a little water to make the filter stick to the sides. Then add your grounds as normal. It helps prevent the filter from collapsing and you never have to worry about swallowing a mouthful of coffee grounds.
