How to cut brownies....and finding things that make life easier!!!!!




I thought everyone knew this, but apparently NOT....I recently remarked to a friend to cut brownies with a PLASTIC knife to keep a nice clean cut (even when they are hot), rather than a ragged tear, messing up the pan of brownies.....works even on commercial made brownies like you can buy at Sam's....

My friend Renee posted it on Lifehacker, which I just learned about when she told me about it today, and it was well received. So I thought I'd pass on the tip to my blog friends....did YOU know this????? Make some brownies today and try it out!!! What a fun experiment!!

Lifehacker, tips and downloads for getting things done

You know those leftover Sams brownies that I brought home? Everyone liked them! I agree that for store-bought, they were pretty tasty. Did you notice all the brownies at the pot-luck Sunday night? Such nice, clean, neatly sliced brownies. You are a good teacher!
