Nancy Leson and I love to share cooking and eating tips and tricks, but we don't always see things the same way. Nance says we agree to disagree. I say we each agree to think the other wrong and say so.

Why throwing away that grill brush and replacing it with  a wooden scraper could save your life.

Why not to buy onions in those net bags.

And 17 other useful tips and tricks, plus:

Turn a previous shell into a pry-bar. Wedge the thin end into the crack of the stubborn nut — twist and ta-dah!
