Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Looking for a slick trick for measuring that sticky honey? Spray the measuring spoon with nonstick cooking spray first, and the honey will slide right out.
  • tip 2
    Cut the 2 lemon slices out of the center of a lemon; wrap and set aside for the last-minute garnish. Then you can use the rest of the lemon for juice and grated peel.
