Today I bring you a handy tip that I've used for many years. Many moons ago, I received a promotional calendar in the mail for my local insurance company.
It was a very small magnetic calendar that you're supposed to hang on your refrigerator and fondly recall all the good times you've had with your insurance person. What? Huh???
Anyhoot, as I was walking it over to the trash can, I noticed that it had kitchen measurement conversions printed on the cardboard backing. So, I cut off the back part and taped it to the inside of my kitchen cabinet. :-) Now that's good times!
Since I can't personally send each one of you an magnetic insurance calendar circa 2010, but because I love you from the bottom of my heart, I've rounded up a few kitchen tips that would be equally as helpful for you to print and tape to the inside of your kitchen cabinet for easy reference.
Kitchen Measurement and Volume Conversions:
Baking and Cooking Substitutions:
How to Cut a Recipe in Half:
Slow Cooker Conversions:
You might be asking yourself did she REALLY just TAPE these into her cabinet? I did.
With Scotch tape? Yep.
You mean you didn't frame them in an upcycled vintage frame that had been meticulously painted with Annie Sloan Chalk paint, or put a bird on them, or hand write the information onto a chalkboard using your best and swirliest calligraphy handwriting, or sprinkle glitter on them, or print them on burlap and meticulously fray the edges? Nope.
You see, because these will be on the INSIDE of your cabinet, it doesn't really matter all that much how schmancy they look. You will benefit from having the information at your fingertips and not having to Google it every time you start making a recipe. If YOU want to do any of the aforementioned things to these, hey knock yourself out! But sometimes the simplest solution is the best one.
