NO-SKID CUTTING BOARD:
Sprinkle a handful of old rubber bands on the counter and place the cutting board on top, preventing any slipping and sliding when cutting or chopping food. And if you get the juices from meat or poultry on them just throw them away.
SECURING KITCHEN GARBAGE BAGS:
Most garbage bags tend to slip down inside the trash can, making a mess to clean up. Secure the bags to the can by using a small bungee cord. Just make sure you don’t throw the cord away when you change the bag, LOL.
IMPROMPTU BREAD MOLD:
Save the empty cardboard box from a roll of extra-wide foil. Line the box with a floured kitchen towel and place the shaped loaf inside, seam side down.
When loaf has proofed, gently roll it over onto a baking sheet or peel ( seam side down again), then slash it and bake it.
NO-WASTE SALAD DRESSING:
Use a child’s (sippy cup). Add all the dressing ingredients to the cup and secure the lid. While holding one finger securely over the spout, shake the cup vigorously to mix well. Remove your finger from the spout and sprinkle over the salad. You will not use to little or to much dressing.
Baking buffs know how quickly all necessary tools of the trade can over take limited space in their kitchen drawers. Buy an inexpensive toolbox from a hardware store to store such thing as, cookie cutters, icing spatulas, mixing cups and etc. I have been doing this for a number of years and have 4 now full of the small items that I may need in the kitchen.
