Do your recipe books get covered in blobs of food when you’re cooking? Sometimes it’s from mixing ingredients rather enthusiastically, or it could be from a sizzling pan. Maybe you’re a really clumsy cook and spill ingredients everywhere!
Here is the perfect solution – it’s quick, simple and free…
Just hang the recipe book or papers on a trouser hanger from your cabinet door handle…like this:
As an added bonus, it frees up more space on your counter.
Of course it will only work if your recipe book is light enough. If you have a big fat heavy one, or if you use a tablet, you can easily get an inexpensive book stand, and a clear acrylic perspex sheet to place over the front to catch the mess (they are cheap and easy to get online). A clear plastic wallet will also do the trick on a small book or tablet, and the touch screen will still work.
Do you have any other tips for this? Or for anything else that saves time, money or stress?
