This one is for all the ice coffee fanatics out there. Instead of using ice cubes in your ice coffee, freeze some coffee in your ice tray. That way, when the coffee cubes melt, they won't water down your drink.
Soft Cookies Hack
Everyone loves soft, moist cookies, but they tend to harden up pretty quickly after you make or buy them. An easy way to keep them softer longer is to put a piece of bread in with the batch when you store them. The cookies will absorb the bread's moisture.

Removing an egg shell can be a huge pain. If you make your fingers wet before you do it, though, it becomes so much easier.

Strawberry Stem Removal
Strawberries are a real crowd pleaser, but it's frustrating that you can eat every part of it but the stem. Use a straw to easily remove the stems, and you can just pop the them into your mouth.
Not Just For Teeth
Dental floss isn't just for your teeth anymore. You can use it to cut soft solid foods like cakes and cheeses perfectly. Just be sure the floss is unscented.
Keep Ice Cream Soft
Soft ice cream is the perfect cold treat, but when you get it our of your freezer the next time it's always so hard that it bends your spoon. Store your ice cream containers in large Ziploc bags and the ice cream will be soft every time you open it.
Instant Cheesy Bread
This mouth-watering trick is a fast and easy way to get delicious cheesy bread. Just cut a loaf of bread (not all the way through) into squares and stick cheese slices into the cuts. Add any other topping you could want and then cook it until it's melty.
No-Stick Fish Grilling
Grilled fish is a tasty and healthy meal. Before you put the fish onto your grill, get a bed of lemons ready. Cooking the fish on the lemons will prevent it from sticking to the grill, plus it adds some great flavor.
