Kitchen Fire safety

Updated on November 15, 2007

Hints (and a couple of cookie recipes) :O)

As old as I am I have never heard of the wet towel thing.....

If a fire starts in a pan of grease..DO NOT PANIC....

1. Turn off the heat.

2. Get a towel..and run it under the water..ring it out and place it over the pan.

3. Don't try to move the pan..and what ever you do DON't throw water over the pan...Also DON'T throw sugar or flour on a grease fire one cup creates the explosive force of two sticks of dynamite..

1-2-3 Cookies from the kitchen of Michelle Sullivan


1 1/4 packages of Nabisco graham crackers (not the whole box)

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1 1/2 cups chocolate chips


Break the graham crackers into crumbs. Add sweetened condensed milk and chocolate chips. Pour into a buttered, small oblong or 9x9 square pan. Bake for 30 minutes @ 350 degrees.

I didn't say it was calorie can use light or non fat condensed milk..but is easy and very good.,.It is the Holidays after all and the granchildren love them...

Here is another cookie recipe from the kitchen of Jenifer bush..makes one batch


1 cup graham cracker crumbs

1 cup shredded coconut

6 oz. butterscotch chips

6 oz. chocolate chips

1 can sweet condensed milk

1 cup walnuts


Melt 1 stick butter in a jelly roll pan. Spread in pan (in layers) - 1 cup graham crackers crumbs, 1 cup of shredded coconut. 6 oz. of butterscotch chips and 6 oz. of chocolate chips. Drizzle one can of sweet condensed milk on top. Add 1 cup of chopped walnuts on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove and let cool- then cut into squares..ENJOY
