Put ice cream in a bag before putting it in the freezer

Ice cream can get rock hard in the freezer and it takes ages to thaw out just enough that you can eat it. A simple trick to keep it just the right consistency is to put the container in a plastic zip-lock bag before throwing it in the freezer.

Freeze a banana to use as the base for a healthy ice cream

When frozen and then mashed up, bananas create a perfectly creamy ice cream base that you can be mixed with other fruit and various toppings to create super-healthy home-made ice cream.

Cut softer foods using a dental floss

Things can get messy if you are cutting a particularly large cake and only have a small knife, but even things like cheese and Swiss rolls can be difficult to cut precisely. You can use dental floss to make quick and precise cuts and avoid trouble.

Dry out herbs in the microwave

For a more permanent storage solution, you can buy a bunch of herbs at the flea market – make your own unique blend of herbs – and then dry them out in the microwave. Put them in for 20-second intervals, and keep turning them over until they are completely dry, at which point you can crush them up.

Throw a slice of apple in with baked treats to keep them soft and moist
