Dirty to Clean in 20 Seconds
The last few blogs have something in common. Do you know what it is? Three of the recipes -- Baked Omelet Roll, Peach Ice Cream and Orange Peach Soup -- use a blender.
You may be wondering why I'm even writing about this. As I wrote on my introduction at the top of the page, I love to share recipes, cooking techniques and tips. This blog falls into the latter category.
I love to cook, but I don't enjoy cleaning up afterwards. Some households have success with one person doing the cooking and the other cleaning up, but that's never worked at my house. After cooking -- especially a holiday meal -- I want to get out of the kitchen fast.
Many years ago, I discovered a quick way to clean a blender. Fill the blender container half full of water. Add a drop or two of dishwashing liquid.
Put on the lid, turn on the blender and blend.
Remove the lid and rinse the container with hot water. Voila! A clean blender.
Now it's your turn. Do you have any tips -- cleaning or otherwise -- that make kitchen work less time consuming? Please share them here so we can all benefit and make our time in the kitchen more productive.
