Here are some simple helpful hints from the Pennsylvania dutch.

- Add a little milk to the water when cooking cauliflower to keep it a bright white.
- Place a small cup of vinegar on the stove or add a lemon wedge to a cooking pot of cabbage to reduce the odor.
- To get an extremely smooth cream soup, beat it for a few seconds with your egg beater before heating.
- Eat your hot soup with a plastic spoon to get it to cool faster.

- Place cheddar cheese in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes before grating to make it grate easier.
- To improve the crispness of french fried potatoes, let the raw potatoes stand in cold water for at least 30 minutes before frying.
- To keep the crust of bread from getting too hard while baking, place a small dish of water in the oven when baking bread.
