Tips of the Month MOBILE

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Create Zones

If you regularly bake, having a cooking area and a baking area could make both processes much easier. Your cooking zone can include all the things you use to make regular meals, like your chopping board, knives, and cooking spray. Meanwhile, your baking zone can hold flour, sugar, and dry measuring cups. Though you may use items from one zone while cooking in the other, this kind of set up will still cut down on unnecessary movement around your kitchen.
