Kitchen Tip Tuesdays: Don't burn the top!
Here's an oft-used tip when baking bread (or casseroles or coffeecake or cinnamon rolls...):
When bread (or other food) that's baking is getting dark on top, but isn't fully cooked on the inside yet, make a loose tent from foil and place on top of the item. It'll finish baking without burning! :)
I use this trick almost every time I bake bread, for the final 5-10 minutes of baking. And I always do it for challah (above) which would probably be charred otherwise! ;)
You can also use foil to help celery last longer in the fridge!
