When Dana asked you what's on your fridge
, many of you said that there were recipes and menus stuck to your icebox. We do this too! Here's a comment and a question on keeping recipes on the fridge... When we are in the middle of a big cooking project (like making wedding cake
and ice cream for 150
) it is very helpful to make all the calculations, ingredient multiplications, and recipe adjustments in advance and print out a recipe just for that baking or cooking session. The fridge is the perfect spot for this multiplied recipe. I adjusted my chocolate cake recipe, for instance, and multiplied it by 14, 9, and 5 for the various tier sizes. That way I wasn't making adjustments on the fly.
Now the question. I'd like to switch to a whiteboard for daily recipe and menu notes on the fridge. This saves paper for all but the largest of recipe projects.
I am still looking for a large whiteboard suitable for the fridge, however. I want something well-made that will get clean and not bear those scuffy, ugly marks that some whiteboards build up very quickly.
Does anyone have a fridge whiteboard you particularly like? Something large and well-magnetized? Or do you have any other suggestions for keeping a note-board close to hand in the kitchen?
