Last year I had started doing a weekly post on Kitchen Tips (search ‘Kitchen Tip of the Week’ to view archives).  I stopped doing them in November because frankly, no one was reading them.  However, my readership has grown a great deal since them (May 2009 was my best month to date – yay!) so I’ve decided to start featuring a weekly tip again.  So if you’re interested in learning some new tricks and advice for the kitchen, please check back each week.

This week’s kitchen tip can help solve a common dilemma when entertaining guests. Have you ever prepared a platter of hors d’oeuvres with a side bowl of dipping sauce, only to have the smaller plate slide around as you’re transporting or serving the food? To prevent this, use a dab of honey (about 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon) under the smaller bowl to ‘glue’ it to the larger serving platter.  Et voila!  No more sliding around and spilling.
