Becky B. writes via email: My hint involves the plastic card holders placed in flower arrangements. Iíve saved three or four of these picks, washed them and used them in my casserole or salad bowls that I bring along to potlucks and picnics. I use a 3-by-5-inch card to tell people if there are any allergy-aggravating ingredients in my dishes and stick them in before the dish is served. Iíve also used them to hold copies of the recipe for people to take!

Josh L. in Riviera Beach, Fla., writes: I put a small bead of reusable adhesive behind the bottom edge of the cupboard door over my kitchen counter workspace. When itís time to cook something new, I stick the recipe to it, and it hangs right in front of me at eye level, off the counter and out of the way.
