Ordinarily, brown sugar is healthier and better than regular old white sugar but it doesn’t come without it’s fair share of downfalls. Evidently, brown sugar dries and clumps up when left untouched for some time. A simple remedy to this problem is to pop a few marshmallows into your bag of brown sugar and it will keep it moist and loose for as long as you need.

If you don’t have a food processor and want to finely cut onions without having to ball your eyes out, don’t waste your time with a knife, use a potato peeler! It works better than any knife does and without the fountain of tears that usually accompanies the daily onion peel. I truly don’t know why I couldn’t have thought about that myself.
