I've been doing my holiday baking this week and I thought maybe you all would be too. So. Here's a tip that I'd like to pass on about saving a little time in the kitchen.
If you've ever watched Rachael Ray, you've seen her use a large bowl on the counter for her scraps and trash. It saves you from running back and forth to the trash can and opening a door if you keep it in the cabinet or opening the lid.
I take that one step further and line the bowl with a bag from hamburger buns or with any plastic bag I have handy. All you have to do is toss the bag. No messy bowl with dried egg to scrub afterwards!
