Quick Tip: How to Build a Make-Shift Cooling Rack

Remember how we were gathering essential cookware for a month away from our kitchen? Well, we completely forgot about potentially needing a cooling rack and a thorough search of the cupboards in our temporary housing turned up nothing. But look at our make-shift solution!

First, we found an extra oven rack in one of the cupboards, but it was too flat to really lift baked goods off the counter. Looking around for something to set it on, our eye fell on our cast-iron skillet. Perfect.

We feel very proud of our resourcefulness and glad that we didn't just rush out to buy a replacement rack!

Do you have any MacGyver-esque problem-solving moments of your own to share?
