Cooking Tip: How to Avoid the Tears

You know how everyone is always trying to put in their 2 cents about how to cut an onion so you won't cry? All of the tips I've heard of and tried so far not only don't work, but they're TOTALLY RIDIC!!! I think my mom says to put a piece of bread under your top lip or something like that.

I thought of this brilliant new one. Swimming goggles. Yes, swimming goggles. It works. Try it! I LOVE cooking and many things I cook involve chopping onions, and since I no longer live with Nikki 6, I have to buck up and chop the onions myself. And I hate it. Or at least I did. Now it doesn't bother me at all. Try it. You'll want to thank me.

This is such a better idea then wearing sunglasses while a choppin'. I used wear them all the time while chopping onions and they work for the first little bit. But hey, the sun never goes down on cool.
