Dear Heloise: I don't know how I do it, but every time I try to cook a new recipe, I manage to make a mess of it. I either overcook it or undercook the item. What am I doing wrong in the kitchen that makes my cooking semi-revolting!? -- Jane Y., Henderson, Tennessee

Dear Heloise: When we have company over, we often have finger foods and dipping sauces. Instead of buying fancy little dishes for the dipping sauces, I reuse yogurt and pudding containers. I remove any paper labels they have on them, wash them and reuse them. When they have seen enough use and need to be replaced, I just toss them in the recycle bin for pickup by the city. -- Jean T., Derby, Connecticut

Dear Heloise: Many times I've received a gift in a nice strong box, and I hate to toss it out in the recycle bin, so I save it. When the holidays roll around, I reuse those boxes to wrap gifts. If they have writing on them, I spray paint the boxes on all sides, sometimes adding glitter and other decorations.
