This is an extremely useful post! I will have to reference this continually as I bake and cook throughout my life. I can't think of a novel tip right now, other than that whisking egg whites with a fork lets you get in exercise while baking so you don't have to go to the gym after making and eating a decadent cake!

I never realized I had a neat trick until I watched my aunt struggle with slicing an avocado. Just cut it in half and take out the seed. Then run your knife from end to end making slices but not all the way through the skin. Run a spoon between the skin and fruit and it pops right out, already sliced.

I don't eat bacon often, but I am going to have to try baking it next time! My favorite tip is freezing cream in ice cube trays to get 1 tablespoon servings for creamy soups (since I can never get through the entire carton of cream from my local dairy). Also using a cup to hold your piping bag to fill, I wish I had known about that one years ago!
