Beyond the Basics - Miscellaneous
Ok, so this has nothing to do with decorating. But sometimes I come across something that I think is so clever I just have to share it. This is one great recycling idea!
When I make pancakes for my family, I have the toughest time estimating how much they'll eat. How much batter do I make? I don't want to make too much because I'll have mounds of extra pancakes that I will undoubtedly try to eat so they don't go to waste. I don't want to make too little because I don't want to have to make two batches of batter.
Another problem I have is trying to pour the batter so that I get nice, round pancakes that are about the same size. Call me a perfectionist, but that's just the way I roll.
So, here's something that seems to solve ALL my problems. I can make the batter, pour it into an old ketchup (or other) squeeze bottle, and voila! Good-looking pancakes from an easy-to-use container. And I'm able to refrigerate any extra batter for 2-3 days. Any longer than that and the pancakes won't rise. I guess you could make crepes out of it if you like that kind of thing. But if the batter is made with eggs, a couple of days is probably all I'd recommend anyway.
Try it out and let me know how it works for you.
