When you need to sift flour but don't have a sifter or you just don't feel like going to all the trouble, pour some flour into a large mixing bowl and stir it with a wire whisk for a few seconds to fluff it up, then scoop out with your measuring cup. Whisk it after each scoop to keep it fluffed.

A quick way to avoid onions stinging your eyes is to not stand with your head directly over the onions when you're peeling them. Stand away from the counter with your arms outstretched while peeling them. The fumes tend to rise straight up and away from your face.

To keep homemade cookies soft, store with a piece of bread in an airtight container.

Bananas that are starting to get too ripe can be peeled and kept in a baggy in the freezer for later use in banana bread and other recipes.

To keep from getting lumps with your gravy mixes and other powdered mixes, fill bowl with proper amount of water first, add a little of the mix and whisk until dissolved, then add the rest of the mix and whisk again.
