Kitchen Tips
Tip 1

Tip 2
Substitute
Combine 1/2 cup cherry preserves and 1/4 cup dried cherries; use instead of the cherry pie filling.
Tip 3
Size Wise

Tip 4
Easy Chocolate Curls
Impress your friends and family by making chocolate curls like the pros. Simply heat chocolate slightly by microwaving 20 to 30 sec. or until you can just smudge the chocolate with your thumb. Draw a vegetable peeler down the edge of the chocolate to create chocolate curls. Curls are delicate, so handle carefully or place on dessert with a toothpick.
