Salad Tip

Add dried crispy apple chips to the salad for an unusal touch of crunch. Break the chips into small pieces and sprinkle them over your salad.

Savory Rice Tip

While cooking rice, cook sliced almonds in butter, then add raisins and stir into rice before serving.

Dessert Tip

To add color and extra flavor to cheesecake, spoon two tablespoons of canned pie filling on each slice.

Decor Tip

For a great centerpiece, combine both fresh flowers and fresh fruit. Place a florist oasis in water, then place in a plastic bag and tie with a twist lock. Cut off any excess bag, and place some florist putty in the bottom of a glass bowl. Place the oasis on top, sealed side down. Cut a Bird of Paradise to about 16 inches and insert into oasis. Carefully fill the bowl with grapes, strawberries, and lemon wedges.
