  • If you burn yourself on a regular basis while cooking, keep a bottle of aloe or burn ointment in the kitchen. If you have limited space in your bathroom, think about keeping your first aid supplies in the kitchen (Things like band aids, ointments, tweezers etc.). Most of the time when someone gets hurt mom is in the kitchen or some place other than the bathroom, so it is handier to have first aid supplies close.

    Note: Be sure that you keep medications where they won’t fall in the sink if you knock them over.

  • Anyone who works in an office knows the best way to get a good start on the next day is to leave your desk organized that evening before you go home. The same goes at home. If you want a good start to your day, make sure your kitchen sink is empty, the counters are clear and the table is cleared off and wiped.

    Does anyone know of a good remedy for adult acne. I even bought the expensive Proactive and it made it worsr, sent that back. HELP

    • Kathy Hall says

      I used to sell Mary Kay. Occasionally when someone started using the product their acne would get worse. They told us the product is working to get rid of the toxins and that once the impururities are cleared out the skin will improve. For what it’s worth

      • says

        This is true Kathy. That is why it is best for a bride or young lady going to the prom not get a facial the day before or day of her important event because unless she had had a really good facial routine set in place for awhile she will probably break out.

  2. Bea says

    Karen, You can use baking soda and water to form a paste and leave on pimples a few minutes. Also, you can use apple cider vinegar as a toner to bring your skin’s PH back to normal and that also clears up acne. I like to use frugal natural products on my skin. Also, that Salicylic acid does a good job. Stridex Pads.

    Hi Tawra and Jill! I was wondering if you could offer tips on being a frugal vegetarian. My husband can’t eat meat – he has PKU – and the food bills are killing us! I did go through the recipe section and I found 3 or 4 recipes that I could use. Any help would be appreciated.

  4. says

    Karen, I had adult acne for years long before they had all these new products and using the apple cider vinegar as a toner did help me a lot. When I sold Mary Kay for awhile they had a clay mask I used which was the answer to my prayers. You don’t have to use Mary Kay. I don’t any more. You can use any clay based masks even inexpensive ones usually helps to dry up your face and if I had an out break I would dab on the mask and leave over night.

    But the thing I think helped me more then anything was I used a moisturizer for oily skin and a foundation for oily skin every day together and it seemed to be the best thing to control things.

    I was reading about the question on acne, here is something that is cheap and really works. Break a egg and seperate use only the yolk beat it up so it goes on easier and apply to your face or whereever you have the acne, let dry and wash off. You can do this nightly as is very gentle, my son used this method. It really does work, hope this helps.

  7. Carol says

    For the gravy that goes on the top of the “steak”, couldn’t I just add flour to the pan drippings, then some milk? I’ve made chicken fried moose, and that’s what I did. It seems cheaper than using more margarine, and besides, the flavour was great – I added salt, pepper and thyme to the coating on the meat, and it flavoured the gravy wonderfully,

    • says

      Carol yes you can do it that way and that is usually how I make my gravy. What that white gravy recipe is is when you are starting from scratch for say a white sauce or if for some reason you don’t have any drippings but like I said I always just use my drippings, flour and then milk too. Plus the flavor is so much better.

  8. Lori says

    Oh my gosh, this is so funny because as soon as I saw the recipe title I immediately thought back to this very same recipe thinking to myself, wow, I wish I could find that again and then BAM!!! There was this very specific recipe. I was expecting it to be the real thing with beef cube steak, etc. but this is the one I use with ground turkey since we don’t eat beef and it’s awesome. My only problem with it is that I always end up burning the crust before the meat is done. Any solutions to that problem? Thanks for posting this. I haven’t made it in years but when we used to have it we all loved it. I will definitely be saving it to my new recipe files.

      You might try turning the heat down quite a bit. So stoves and pans seem to cook hotter then others. Also I have found that some pans if you have burnt something in them at one time or another will tend to burn easier then other pans. If you are like me you probably use the same pan for frying your chicken fried steak each time so you could try a different pan.
