Random cooking stuff that I've discovered makes me happy

  • Measuring flour by weight - once I figured out that 4 cups of flour should be around 14 1/4 oz, the act of pouring flour into a big bowl on a digital scale gave me indescribable glee.
  • My apron and dishtowel - some will not be surprised to know that I have a cow-print apron. Or that I still have the apron. Happen to be wearing it right now, cause I'm lazy that way.
