There's nothing I hate more than something that doesn't work well, and I've definitely been tormented by plastic wrap. Who hasn't? (Well, maybe a lot of people, but I'm not one of them.) The Kitchn Cure has me really looking at what's inconvenient about my kitchen, and how I can change it.
Y'all! We have crossed the halfway line of The Kitchn Cure! Doesn't it feel great? The Cure has been all about streamlining for me. I don't need more, I need less, so I can find and use what I have. As I went through my appliances, gadgets and tools, I found at least one really cool thing I had forgotten, and I'll be using it regularly. I couldn't resist the urge to reward myself with a few new things, but I tried to stick to the necessities.
I needed more destocking than restocking. Judging from the mess in my fridge, freezer and pantry, I had everything I needed. It was time to use it! But all that shiny, empty space was tempting, so I did add a few things.
I hesitate to use the word "neat," because Madonna so famously mocked Kevin Costner for it in Truth or Dare, and I really want Madonna to like me, if we ever meet. But Squeez'Em Reusable Food Pouches are just that, pretty neat. And I probably won't ever meet Madonna.
Q: What's the best way to store bread? I buy regular sandwich bread from the grocery store, and it always gets moldy spots within a week. I just store it above the fridge. On Saturday I bought these wonderfully delicious challah rolls, and by Tuesday all of the rolls were moldy. I have a tiny kitchen with minimal storage. What to do?
I've never been a fan of the fruit bowl. I love storing fruit out in the open as a friendly reminder to eat it, but I've been burned too many times by the secretly-bruised piece of fruit getting sticky and moldy at the bottom of the bowl. That's why Fruit-Wall is so appealing — it gives your fruit plenty of room without taking up any counter space and turns your produce into an ever-changing work of art.
If you've been wanting to make the switch from disposable plastic food storage containers to glass containers, you are not alone. There are more options than ever, but at around $8 per container, buying a full set is a pricey decision. Which line of glass food storage containers is the best? The Sweet Home did some serious research and testing to bring us the answer.
