Low Carb Luxury Online Magazine is currently offering a new mini-series of tips sent to us by kitchen-wiz Olivia Morten. Olivia has been a teacher for 16 years, and a dedicated low carb dieter for the last 2 1/2 years. She tells us she's had to learn to keep things running more smoothly than ever to keep her life ordered and has been collecting and innovating little tips and tricks for some time. Thank you for sharing them with us, Olivia.

  • If you need a teaspoon or less of lemon juice, prick the lemon with a thumbtack and squeeze out what you need. Seal the hole by inserting a toothpick.

  • The safest way to melt chocolate is in a double boiler. If you do not own one, place chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepot of simmering water. Water should not touch the underside of the bowl. The smaller the chocolate is chopped, the faster it will melt.

  • Use Atkins or DaVinci sugarfree syrup to sweeten and flavor heavy cream for whipping.

  • When processing nuts in a food processor to a fine consistency, add a small amount of low carb Bake Mix or whey protein powder (not soy). This will help keep the nuts from clumping together.

  • To make your own cinnamon "sugar", mix 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon with 1/2 cup granular sugar substitute. Keep it in a shaker container that you've saved from an empty spice.

  • Edible flowers (sold at specialty food markets) make great, carb-free garnishes for special desserts.

  • A serrated knife makes slicing cakes and breads much easier.

  • If your plastic wrap has stuck to itself, place it in the freezer. It will be easier to peel after 15 minutes.

  • If you don't like the feel of raw food on your hands, try this trick when mixing meatloaf: place all ingredients in a large food storage bag and mix through the bag.

  • To bring butter to room temperature quickly, cut in 1/2" slices, arrange in a circle on a plate, and microwave on medium for 15 to 25 seconds.

  • When baking muffins, fill any unused compartments halfway with warm water. This will ensure even baking.

  • Spray your Tupperware with nonstick cooking spray before pouring in tomato-based sauces and there won't be any stains.

  • Don't throw out all that leftover wine: Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.
