Hints From Heloise 

Hints From Heloise   

That's said like "ell-o-weese", right?
I had a teacher in high school call her "hell-waus". I corrected him. The class giggled, and he said he hated smart kids. I wasn't too traumatized. Looking back on it, any teacher who had to put up with my hair-brained attitude had a right to say he hated me every now and again. 

Anyhow, I'm sharing the link because Heloise knows everything. You have a Housekeeping problem, she has the solution. 


Ham made easy!!


Want a delicious, tender ham without a lot of fuss?

Cook it in beer. Be it Heineken or Natty Light, pop a ham in a roaster or a crock pot and cover it in beer, cook all day, and it's delicious.

*Thanks to my alcoholic grandma for this recipe...just joking...that crazy cat lady knew how to hold her liquor.

  2. Ha ha ha! I know the feeling about cleaning just to make things "acceptable" - especially now. We've got boxes and stuff everywhere. Ah, but moving gives me an excuse for the mess, doesn't it? Hmm, how long can I use that for...? :)

  3. We always added bear to the water when we cooked shrimp. My Hubzam never heard of this - I had to sneak it in, and when I did - he always thought it tasted better.

    My grandmother always called her 'Hel-zees', don't ask me why, lol.

  5. I'm not a beer drinker, but adding beer to meat and dishes adds nice flavor.

  6. I'm always apologizing for the mess whenever anyone comes over. Luckily that doesn't happen too often since my apartment is so tiny.

  21. Never would have thought of beer for ham, chicken yes, but not ham! Sounds good... I try never to mention the mess, because I figure if I don't, they wouldn't dare! Lisa, co-host AtoZ 2015, @ http://www.lisabuiecollard.com

  22. I've heard a lot about cooking beef in beer, and using it in fish batter's quite popular here, but I've not seen it with ham before. I bet it tastes fantastic though, but does it carry with it much of the beer's flavour?

    I am... not good with cleaning. But then, I think, most people aren't so I feel a bit better when I remember that. The people who're obsessive about cleaning are definitely in the minority. (Though I'll admit to cleaning a lot more when I'm procrastinating... Resisting the urge to clean my desk right now.)
