Wanna know a secret?

If you put a wooden spoon over a boiling pot, it won't boil over.  Thank you, Pinterest!

I had read this, but didn't believe it.  It actually works.  I was making Kraft macaroni and cheese. You know, the kind in the blue box that 5 year olds love? Yeah, that one.  I have a bad habit of walking away from a pot on the stove and then it boils over making that very scary sizzle noise.  I thought that this time I'd at least try the wooden spoon trick.  It never once got even close to boiling over.  If anyone knows the science behind this, I'd love to hear it!  I am amazed.


  1. serious? I have got to try that!! Thanks :)

  2. This is a great tip!! My husband also showed me that if you blow on the bubbles, is clears them pretty quickly. Not very hygienic, but if it's just for your family, why not?
