Never Forget An Ingredient Again!


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Ever baked something tasty, only to realize too late you forgot an important ingredient?

Organize all your ingedients on the counter *in the order they will be used in the recipe*. Then as you measure and add items, put the container away. If there is anything left on the counter, it's immediately apparent that you forgot it! This also helps you make sure you have all the ingredients before you start!

    Great idea thanks for sharing wish I would have read this before I made my carrot and pineapple salad this morning. I didn't have enough raisins. It will be ok but not as good as normal. emoticon

    Yes, I did this today while baking. The French have a culinary term for it "Mies en place" meaning everything in place. It's a great way to go! They take it one step further though, and measure all ingredients. Thanks for sharing!

    Yes--I've learned to put all ingredients on the counter
