When making the delicious rice crispies squares (Nigella Expresss) it is a lot easier to use
neutral veggie oil (e.g. sunflower) instead of gloves when putting the warm stuff into whatever form is used. Just rub your hands with oil like you would with hand cream. This way the warm mass won't stick to your fingers. This works nicely when handling any sticky
dough as well.

If you love chewy cookies, as I do, add one tablespoon of corn syrup and one tablespoon of water to any cookie batter. Your cookies will always come out soft and delicious!
