Buy the Johnsonville Irish Sausages (the ones with a "wee bit o' garlic" in them) and bake them in the oven on 400° F for 45 minutes. Start boiling potatoes around the 20 minute mark and make mash potatoes. Also make onion gravy (I like the McCormick onion gravy packets best). Then serve the sausage with the mash potatoes and gravy and you have a traditional British meal!!

Someone shared this on Facebook. I thought it was a great idea. How to make "brookies" (brownie/cookies). Simply put one scoop of cookie batter and one scoop of brownie batter together in a muffin pan. Genius. Why didn't I think of this?

I love corn. I love corn a LOT. I love corn in the summer, I love corn in the fall. I love it steamed, grilled, boiled, broiled, or in a casserole. I'm like the Bubba Gump girl of corn. Anyway, it's a MAJOR pain to have to husk it. That silly silky stuff reproduces the second you start peeling it off the ear of corn, I swear it. In an effort to curtail the frustrating and time consuming task of husking corn, I started microwaving it. HEAR ME OUT! When you do it this way, it does NOT seem "microwaved". It doesn't get all wrinkly and dimply and gross. It comes out as if you steamed it. Did I mention that it only takes 4 minutes AND you just shake the corn out of the husk when it's done? Seriously. No hassle. No husking. No silk. My favorite kitchen tip, easily.
