FYI-I’m More Martha Stewart Than Martha Stewart

Or at least I like to tell myself that…I also tell my husband that…and the kids. They pretend to agree. That’s why I love ’em!

Anyways, I’d like to share some tricks of the trade we call “stay-at-home mother & wife.” To you, this may be well known facts, but to me they were earth shattering revelations. 

Earth. Shattering!

 Note the picture above. A wooden spoon on top of a pot with boiling water, will never overflow! As demonstrated in this picture. Don’t know why, it’s just the way it is.

Also, did you know that adding salt to water does NOT speed up the boiling point. It’s an old wives tale. A college chemistry teacher taught me that and I literally called bullshit on him in the middle of class.

Pasta salads. My mom failed at passing these little tidbits down to me, but always make your pasta salads the day before! (I heart making things the day before anyways, so I’ve mastered pasta salads.) The pasta absorbs your dressing, so in the morning, you’ll need to add more dressing. The dressing absorbed pasta is super yummy!

Bon appétit!
