Share Your Kitchen Shortcuts With Mueller’s Pot-Sized Pasta

Are you guilty of breaking spaghetti noodles in half to fit into a pot? If you are like me, I'm GUILTY AS CHARGED.
Thanks to the geniuses at Mueller's, breaking that pasta in half is no longer necessary with their *Pot-Sized* pastas. When I discovered this.... I thought... now why didn't I think of that.... Brills!

Serving pasta on one of our many hectic evenings just became that much easier! I'm all about keeping it quick and simple on days that we are limited on time.
The kids still get to enjoy Mueller's pasta, now just in a more convenient size. Whether it served with my homemade spaghetti sauce or with butter and Parmesan cheese, I know that the kids will be thrilled with this tasty dinner option! Mueller's Pot-Sized Pasta is SO SMART... and I will be using it from here on out... no more struggling with THAT other pasta length. 
I love this NEW kitchen shortcut. I absolutely LOVE things that make our hectic life a little easier... so here's a family shortcut tip that I use quite often!

Vote For My Kitchen Shortcut: Soften Butter In No-Time

Hate waiting for cold butter to soften... it seems to take forever. A quick way to speed up the process: Over a mixing bowl, shred the amount of butter you need on a grater. The little pieces will soften faster than a solid stick. Easy-peasy!
