Who else wants to have more fun, time and freedom in the kitchen?
Here are 4 mind blowing baking hacks that will speed things up for you in the kitchen so you can spend more time with your family during the holidays. Watch my video to see how and scroll through for pictures.
1. Accurately measure 1/2 cup liquid with a 1 cup dry measuring cup. Fill a straight sided dry measuring cup with water. Tilt the cup diagonally. When the liquid touches the brim on one side and the edge of the flat bottom on the other side, you have measured exactly one cup!
2. When you crouch down to eyeball a measurement from a liquid measuring cup, do you have to call 911 to get up again? Not anymore! Do this instead. Elevate your liquid measuring cup on top of a large bowl, large pot or large strainer. No more getting stuck on the floor!
3. Are you in the middle of a holiday baking bonanza and only have one sifter for all your baked goods? To dry your sifter super fast after you wash it so you can use it again, either place it next to the back of your oven for 2 minutes while the oven is on, or place it inside your preheating oven for 2 minutes. It will be dry in no time. Use caution and wear oven mitts when retrieving them because it will be hot.
4. Run a double strip of masking tape across the opening of a container (like cocoa powder). Scoop up your spoonful and level it off by scraping it against the tape!
