  • I've never heard of wrapping your cheese in parchment paper. Really like the tip of putting asparagus & herbs in a bit of water. - 2/6/14

  • It looks as tho her freezer is on the bottom - When we bought this fridge a few years back, that wasn't an option but I'd certainly look for it the next time we have to buy one! - 10/11/13

  • Great tips - 8/29/12

  • Good tips. I've recently been reading about the bad effect plastics have on our system and one of the things mentioned is not keeping cheese in plastic (use parchment, baking paper or greaseproof paper). Cheeses (especially the fattier ones) react with the plastic and absorb the chemicals from it. - 8/28/12

  • My husband loves fresh asparagus, I will try that trick, water in the glass in the back of the fridge. Spinach isn't well liked in my house hold, but I use it in a salad 3x a week with sun dried strawberries and sliced almonds. I put a little strawberry vinaigrette on top and have a nice lunch. - 7/12/11

  • Your tip about using parchement paper for the cheese is genius! I've always struggeled with either wet cheese (from being in the plastic) or dried out cheese (from not being covered at all to avoid the wet cheese). I've also always wondered what to use the parchement paper for. Thank you so much. - 7/31/10

  • I've just reorganized my fridge and now there's so much more room-- I barely took any out! As soon as I watched the part on how to store herbs, I did what it told me. Hopefully this will keep my veggies fresh longer. That's a major issue for me. - 7/13/10
