    Delia v 'Real Woman' 3rd Jan 05 at 4:57 PM
    Delia's Way
    Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips.

    The Real Woman's Way
    Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone. You're probably lying on the couch with your feet up eating it anyway.

    ***************************************
    Delia's Way
    To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.

    The Real Woman's Way
    Buy Smash and keep it in the cupboard for up to a year.

    ***************************************
    Delia's Way
    When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking tin, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the outside of the cake.

    The Real Woman's Way
    Tesco sell cakes. They even do decorated versions.

    ***************************************
    Delia's Way
    If you accidentally over-salt a dish while it's still cooking, drop in a potato slice.

    The Real Woman's Way
    If you over salt a dish while you are cooking, that's tough. Please recite with me the Real Woman's motto: "I made it and you will eat it and I don't care how bad it tastes."

    ***************************************
    Delia's Way
    Wrap celery in aluminium foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.

    The Real Woman's Way
    It could keep forever. Who eats it?

    ***************************************
    Delia's Way
    Brush some beaten egg white over piecrust before baking to yield beautiful glossy finish.

    The Real Woman's Way
    Sainsbury's frozen pie directions do not include brushing any egg white over the crust so I don't do that.

    ***************************************
    Delia's Way
    Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.

    The Real Woman's Way
    Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half and drop it in 8 ounces of vodka. Drink the vodka. You might still have the headache, but who cares?

    ***************************************
    Delia's Way
    If you have a problem opening jars, try using latex dishwashing gloves. They give a non-slip grip that makes opening jars easy.

    The Real Woman's Way
    Why do I have a man?

    ***************************************
    And finally the most important tip

    Delia's Way
    Freeze leftover wine into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.

    The Real Woman's Way
    Leftover wine???? Hello!!!!!

    I really like that. Someone who thinks the way I do! Sometimes the "tips" these experts hand out are just a lot of fuss and bother! As for leftover wine......what does that mean exactly???
