Thanks, Sue! And if you or others would consider leaving feedback (positive | negative) on any book review platforms (Goodreads, Amazon, etc.), those reviews are *extremely* very helpful to authors like me. Thanks for considering:)
Maybe when you're not looking the cat is using it to neatly prep its dinner...

I've started to just push the garbage over the top lip of my cutting board with a bench scraper so it falls an inch or so to the counter. Then I scrape it all into the trash after I cook. (Your way sounds much more elegant.)

Yes, bingo. {Also: hi!}

Exactly! And I have no idea. I actually wonder if one of the reasons I have so many is that I have divided storage columns above my oven where all my sheet pans live easily. (They slide in and out beside my cutting boards, pizza stone, cooling racks, etc.) I think if I didn't have that particular storage area, I might cut back. They do take up space!

We did! I started doing this a few years ago for recipe-testing, and now I usually do it for my regular meals as well.

You've got such a calm presence and outlook, though, E, that I bet even if you did have to rummage mid-cook, you wouldn't let it spoil your mood. I need to advance plan to keep myself all zen.

They're absolutely among the most well-used items in my kitchen. I say double your pleasure.

You were a wonderful visitor to my home!

Smart suggestions like this have no expiration date. I'm definitely going to try it!

Worth a try. Costs zero dollars if you've already got one in the house.

If only they were playpen-sized.

EXACTLY. I started doing it when I began doing a ton of recipe-testing. The testing is time-sensitive, so I couldn't afford to get lost in the cabinets. You're totally right that the sheet's mobility is key!

That's funny. I have one of those (two maybe) and always forget about it in the cabinet. I'm going to pull it out tonight and see if it inspires me:)

I couldn't agree with you more about the parchment. I always keep a fat stack of this parchment from King Arthur Flour on hand... worth every because it stores flat and is sized to fit half-sheet pans perfectly penny:http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/baking-parchment-paper-set-of-100-half-sheets

I'm impressed that you prep dinner the night before. I occasionally prep breakfast the night before (muesli, steel-cut oats), and it makes a *huge* difference in the quality of my morning. Welcome here, Fahmida. Glad to have you among us.

Anything to reduce stress during meal-prep is worth exploring, or at least that's how I view it. Some people are very zen cooks. The rest of us: not quite so much. (And you're welcome.)

I agree that smelling can be very distracting.
Toggle Commented Apr 13, 2015 on Here's a no-brainer timesaver. at 5 second rule
I totally agree. Or at least a few continents. It might be tough (though wonderful) to visit them all.
Well, I will definitely have to check it out when I come to Boston in May. I'll let you know when my daytime plans settle into place. (I currently have evening events on 5/5 at Farm + Fable and 5/7 at Sofra.) You'll have to join me for a field trip to Sophia's if you're free while I'm there!

I don't think e-books are going anywhere, but when it comes to cookbooks, I need -- and will always need -- paper between my fingers. Where else am I going to wipe off my cake batter?

Thanks so much for your interest!

Hi Lily! I'm really glad you found this little corner of the web. I've been admiring your Instagram feed for some time. I'm actually in San Jose. I wish I spent more time in Marin, but I only get up there a few times a year. It's silly, really, since it's not that far (but neither is San Francisco and it's clear I don't spend nearly enough time there either). I hope you're enjoying a beautiful LA spring. Thank you so much for connecting. Mutual admiration!
Not decadent but amazing. Decadent *and* amazing.

Thanks for your support and kindness, Suzy! I'm really glad you found me and hope you return often. I'm completely intrigued by yogurt in Egypt... I think I'll email you to learn more. Welcome.
