The Best Hack for Using That Last Bit of Red Wine

Martha Stewart's tip helps save that last bit of red wine when the window to drink it has passed.

Red wine is a delicious part of the Mediterranean diet that may help reduce your risk of heart disease. It's a nice treat at the end of a long day. But the bottle is only good to drink for about three days — and we all know that feeling when there's still wine left! So take this easy tip from Martha Stewart to save that wine and use it later for some delicious cooking.

Red Wine Ice Cubes

Pour the leftover wine into an ice cube tray, using about 1-2 tablespoons per section. You can also pour the wine into a plastic food container. Freeze the liquid until it's solid, and then transfer the cubes to a plastic baggy for easy storing in the freezer.

These cubes will last up to three months and are great ways to add deep flavors to soups and stews!

Will you ever feel comfortable in your own skin? That is, if you don't make an effort to protect it? Although 64% of adults do report wearing sunscreen when outside for prolonged periods of time, it turns out that only about 10% of people surveyed actually protect themselves daily, according to a recent review.

No matter what your skin tone is, unless you live in a cave with no sunlight, daily protection with either sunscreen, sunblock or protective clothing can not only protect you from developing sunburns (ouch!) but can significantly reduce your risk of developing skin cancer, particularly the deadliest type called melanoma. In addition, for those of you wanting to keep your youthful looks, daily sunscreen has been shown to reduce the development of wrinkles. A great teacher once told me that the best way to not have wrinkles is not to get them in the first place (think of how much money you can save on useless creams that claim to diminish wrinkles).
