ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

(BPT) - As the holiday hustle and bustle swings into high gear, there are a few holiday hacks to make cooking, baking and gifting a little easier. Visit ReynoldsKitchens.com or follow Reynolds Kitchens on Pinterest for more delicious holiday recipes and hacks for staying stress-free this season.

1. Parchment paper is your secret weapon.

There are so many great ways to use parchment paper — from baking cookies that will slide right off the pan to keeping messes contained when decorating. But did you know you can also wrap up cookies in parchment paper to gift in the most adorable way? Simply stack the cookies in the center of a parchment paper square, fold the edges over and tie with festive ribbon. Voila, gifting solved.

2. When you need quick advice, turn to TEXT-MOM.

When it comes to cooking advice, you know Mom knows best. But sometimes Mom also wants to know when you’re coming home to visit or why you’re still single. To help answer all of your burning holiday questions with none of the fuss, Reynolds Kitchens created the TEXT-MOM helpline. From now until Friday, Dec. 23, simply text your cooking, baking or entertaining question to 937-TEXT-MOM (937-839-8666) to receive a helpful, loving and hilarious text back from a real mom to help keep the holidays stress-free.

3. Double your flavor (with none of the mess) in your slow cooker.

Break out the slow cooker and amaze your family and friends by making two dips at the same time! Simply make a heavy-duty foil divider for the center and insert two slow cooker liners to keep dips separate and make cleanup a breeze. These delicious slow cooker appetizer recipes for Sweet and Sour Meatballs, Buffalo Chicken Dip and Spinach and Artichoke Dip are sure to be a hit at any holiday party.

4. Chocolate bark is a quick, delicious dessert.

If you’re looking for an easy, festive and inexpensive dessert to bring to your next holiday party, try making chocolate bark and mix in your favorite topping. Use a Reynolds Bakeware pan from start to finish and you won’t have anything to clean up — and you won’t have to worry about getting your pan back after the party is over. That’s what we call a huge win! Check out our favorite festive bark ideas and learn more here.

5. Fool-proof your meat by using an oven bag.

Don’t serve dry meat this year! Cooking your turkey, pork, beef or lamb in an oven bag is a great way to ensure your meat will stay moist and succulent. The best part: cooking times will be reduced and all the delicious juices stay in the oven bag, so you won’t even need to scrub the roasting pan.
