“Learned this from my mom. Every time you buy chives/green onions just cut most of them off and use them or store them in the fridge. Then put the roots in a cup with half an inch of water. Regrows back to full size or more within a few days. You can repeat this up to about 2-4 times if you have a good batch.”

“Best cake making trick I’ve ever learned. Cut a strip from an old towel, soak it in water, and squeeze out the excess, wrap it around the cake tin and secure it with metal pins before baking. You’ll get nice evenly cooked cakes with no doming.”
