Easy Recycling Tip
I make recycling easy for my husband and kids by placing a paper grocery bag next to the regular trash can. They now place recyclables into this bag and I empty it into our city recycle barrel at least once a day, and I reuse the paper bag if it's in good condition.

Freezer Tips
Freezing Berries
Fresh berries taste so good - but the season is short. Buy them when prices are low and place unwashed berries on a try. Freeze solid - then transfer to freezer containers or bags. If using bags press out all the air - or use vacumn sealer. Berries should be used within 12 months.

Freezing Bananas
Bananas should be frozen with peel intact. Peel will turn black but the banana will still be good. When you are ready to use them thaw, peel and mash to use in muffins, breads, pancakes and smoothies. Frozen bananas should be used within 3 months.

Freezing Cheese
I have frozen cheese in the original blocks but it's best to cut it into small pieces or shred. Hard cheeses freeze best - Cheddar Parmesan, Swiss. After shredding vacumn seal or double wrap tightly in plastic then wrap in foil. Frozen cheese will be crumbly when thawed so use for cooking only. Frozen cheese should be used within 4-6 months.

Freezing Butter

Vacumn seal or wrap foil around the original carton to freeze. Freeze for 4 months or less and use within 30 days of thawing.
