Kitchen tip - Works for Me Wednesday

Do you dread using recipes with sticky ingredients like honey or molasses because it all sticks to the measuring cup or spoon and you're not sure if your measurements are thrown off as a result?

Well, dread no more. The answer is simple. Squirt the cup or measuring spoon with a little non-stick cooking spray, and the sticky stuff will slide right out. If you're an uneven sprayer like I am, use your finger to spread the non-stick spray around to cover the entire spoon or cup.

Here I am, measuring out molasses for homemade oatmeal creme pies. Maybe I'll share the recipe soon.

  1. I like using an adjustable measuring cup like this one by Pampered Chef: http://www.pamperedchef.com/our_products/catalog/product.jsp?productId=210&categoryCode=KW

    You measure out the ingredient and then push it up and out, leaving no room for anything to stay inside. Works well for me! :)

  2. I have that measuring cup, too! I use it for peanut butter and more "solid" ingredients.

  3. You are amazing. I will def. try this. I need to check back in here because as a novice chef I need all the tips I can get.
