    Ladies of days gone by: If a lady accidentally over-salts a dish while
    it's still cooking, she drops in a peeled potato and it absorbs the
    excess salt for an instant "fix-me-up".

    Women of today: If you over-salt a dish while you are cooking, that's
    too damn bad. Please recite with me, The Real Women's motto: "I made it
    and you will eat it and I don't care how bad it tastes."

    Ladies of days gone by: Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half
    and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.

    Women of today: Take a lime, mix it with tequila, chill and drink. You
    might still have the headache, but who cares?

    Ladies of days gone by: Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a
    sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips.

    Women of today: Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for Pete's sake. You are probably lying on the couch, with your feet up,
    eating it anyway.

    Ladies of days gone by: To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in
    the bag with the potatoes.

    Women of today: Buy boxed mashed potato mix and keep it in the pantry
    for up to a year.

    Ladies of days gone by: When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking
    pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white
    mess on the outside of the cake.

    Women of today: Go to the bakery - they'll even decorate it for you.

    Ladies of days gone by: Brush some beaten egg white over pie crust
    before baking to yield a beautiful glossy finish.

    Women of today: Sara Lee frozen pie directions do not include brushing
    egg whites over the crust, so I just don't do it.

    Ladies of days gone by: If you have a problem opening jars, try using
    latex dishwashing gloves. They give a non slip grip that makes opening
    jars easy.

    Women of today: Go ask the very cute neighbor guy to do it.

    Ladies of days gone by: Don't throw out all that leftover wine. Freeze
    into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.

    Women of today: Leftover wine??
