It’s time once again for the semi annual Clearance of Joyce’s Desk, and I’m happy to report that I have some wacky kitchen tips and a few strange culinary facts to pass along. Hopefully these little gems will now clutter up YOUR desk, while I can toss the frighteningly large pile of post it notes I’ve been moving around for six months in the trash. I don’t go looking for these things, but they seem to find me anyway. There’ll be a small line at the bottom of some magazine article that catches my eye and I have to rip it out so I don’t forget it. Or maybe one of my favorite chefs on the Food Network will do something so smart and handy that I scribble it down and toss it on my desk where it’ll lurk for a couple of months.
Once in a while someone will say something to me at the store, like the nice lady (sorry I don’t know who you are!) who told me she always her bread basket with a piece of foil because it keeps her garlic bread warmer longer. This is MY kind of kitchen tip! You don’t have to rush out and buy something or build a dang gadget, or worst of all crochet or sew something to make it work. So with those stern requirements in mind, here are a few things I found interesting in the past six months.
