2 cups ginger ale

2 cups vanilla ice cream

Barbecue Slaw

1 1/4 cup vinegar

3/4 cup water

1 1/2 cup sugar

Boil all ingredients together and chill before mixing with shredded cabbage.

Mint Sugar

12 mint leaves

sugar to fill pint jar

Put mint leaves into pint jar and cover with sugar. Let set for three weeks. After three weeks, remove mint leaves from sugar and place sugar into another jar and store. Use in tea and fresh fruits.

Cooking tip: If the recipe calls for 1 cup chopped onion, use 2 medium onions; 1 cup chopped celery, use 2 medium stalks.

To kill odor in shoes, sprinkle baking soda onto shoes.

Cooking tip: Soak potatoes in salt water for 30 minutes before baking them. This will speed up the baking process.

Lemon Pepper

2 tablespoons lemon peel

2 tablespoons white pepper

2 tablespoons black pepper

1 tablespoon parsley

Root Beer Float

1 cup vanilla ice cream

Cut eggplant on the grain instead of across. Batter in muffin mix and cook in cooking oil about 5 minutes on each side. Cooking eggplant is better cooked this way than cutting it across.
