I remember when it was my week to feed our dog (years and years ago). She ate canned dog food, half a can a night. I always hated the first night, when I had to open the fresh can and scoop out the food with a tablespoon. The second night, though, was a piece of cake. The leftover dog food had been in the fridge, so it didn't stink, and I could use this trick of opening the other end of the can and pushing out what was left. Love that trick. Hate the fact that some cans nowadays aren't intended to be opened from either end, but one only.

If I had the $25, I'd sent it to you, cause I DIDN'T know that! Thanks!

I am glad that munkamama is far more educated than myself in such matters. However, I was never taught to cook nor learned these things growing up in a single parent family and being a working girl until I got married. As a stay at home mom, I am learning everything new. I think these magazines have caught onto many in my shoes and have helped simpletons like me with such tips. I did not know about the tomato paste and appreciate you patient folks spreading the love! Peace out;)

Also, if you don't need to use the whole can of tomato paste (many recipes call for just a tablespoon or two) form the leftover paste in a log, wrap it in a piece of wax paper, and put it in the freezer. Then you can slice off however much you need and it doesn't get fuzzy.

munkamama: I have one thing I do that I know I found in a magazine tip. And other times, magazine tips remind me of things that I'd forgotten. I'd probably have more if I read more magazines. But then, I didn't grow up learning how to cook from my parents, etc. So maybe I'm more their target market than you are?

I'd never heard this about tomato paste either.

I did not know that- but I do usually try to open cans upside down, on the theory that the bottom lid has not been up and exposed to dust as much.

And did you know that 28-oz cans of peaches open way better if you open them upside down? We figured that one out by extreme frustration and many mangled cans. Don't ask me why it works but it does. Most of the time.

There's my tip, I'll take a free subscription to the Common Room.

My sil and I were just discussing magazine "tips" over the weekend. What is the deal? I don't remember any specific thing I do now that I have found from a magazine "tip". Now, articles/pictures/instructions on projects are fine - but I am irked by the amount of simpleton "tips" that everyone has known forever (I'm not talking about you) and the magazine you've paid good money for publishes them. Maybe I read too much and so I come across the same ones over and over..."There is nothing new under the sun!"
