  • Kitchen Tip: Use a 4-cup measuring cup as a mixing bowl


    A few months ago, I bought myself a 4-cup Pyrex measuring cup like this one,although mine didn’t come with a lid. It’s made my life in the kitchen so much easier.

    When I’m making waffles, I need two cups of milk. Using the 4-cup measuring cup means I can combine all of my liquid ingredients in the cup – I just measure out the milk first, then add the eggs, butter, and vanilla right into the measuring cup, stir with a fork or whisk, and pour the whole thing into the dry ingredients.

    When I’m making artisan bread, I measure out all three cups of water at once. And I’ve made the recipe enough times to know that I can microwave the water for 1 1/2 minutes to get it to the right temperature for the yeast.

    I just wish I’d gotten a 4-cup measuring cup sooner!
