Some nights cooking dinner is a hands-on task. But on other nights, after the prep work is done, dinner is left to bake in the oven or simmer on the stove, and you're left with a little down time.
So, what do you do with those precious minutes while dinner is cooking? Since I'm already there, I like to reserve this time for things that need to get done in the kitchen. These tasks are all quick and simple, yet they make life in the kitchen a little better.
