Here is a dose of vintage cooking tips for this week. Love these little tidbits of information. Some are totally relevant today, but others are dated, which I totally love. They can still be used, but since we have microwaves and so many electric gizmos that are supposed to make our lives easier, we probably do not need to use them as much. But, I guess in a way, this is giving you options! Old fashioned versus new! Bits of the Past! Ha!

Pierce chicken livers on all sides before placing in the pan to keep them from popping and splattering grease.
