How to Keep Your Cookies in One Piece

Have you ever baked the perfect cookie? The ones that look and smell amazing as you pull them out of the oven? You allow them time to cool on the cookie sheet then grab the spatula and try to free them. Only as you put the spatula to the edge of the cookie and lift it up, it breaks in half (or worse, PIECES!). Perfect cookies ruined :(

What could you have done differently to save these your poor little masterpieces? You could have turned the spatula upside-down, which would have pushed them free instead of lifted them free. Perfect cookies once again :)

How to Fold a Fitted Sheet

My dear friend, Carrie, needed help. She had a closet full of fitted sheets and was very frustrated that she could not fold them nicely and neatly. Carrie asked if someone out there could send her a video on how to fold the stinking fitted sheets. Still a little sick with a touch of pneumonia, unshowered, and with my hair undone, I had my husband tape me folding a fitted sheet to spare Carrie her frustration. Little did I know, many of my Facebook friends would not only watch this video, but post it to their Facebook page so all of their friends could see it. This video was the inspiration for my blog. I hope it helps straighten up the linen closets of America. I only wish I had at least brushed my hair.
