A whole avocado may be too much for 1 meal. How to keep the second half from turning brown? "Frost" it with Greek yogurt! The thick yogurt creates an airtight layer, and the avocado stays fresh, green and delicious--ready to eat as a healthy "frosted" snack, or to be mashed up for yogurt-based guacamole. To make it even more elegant, sprinkle the "frosting" with dill weed or paprika.
1.Prevent fruits from browning -Most of us use lemon or vinegar to stop peeled apples & pears from browning, but you can also drop them in lightly salted water to help them keep their color. 2.Shell nuts more easily - Soak pecans and walnuts in salt water for several hours before shelling to make it easier to remove the meat. 3.Extend cheese life - Prevent mold on cheese by wrapping it in a cloth moistened with saltwater before refrigerating.

4.Save the bottom of your oven - If a pie or casserole bubbles over in the oven, put a handful of salt on top of the spill. It won't smoke & smell, and it will bake into a crust that makes the baked-on mess much easier to clean when it has cooled.
