I had a brilliant epiphany last night that puts all of my past baking years to shame. Growing up, we always had a spoon rest next to the stove. That's where my spoon rest is. When I bake, I'm always scrambling for somewhere to put the scraper/spatula after I've used it in the mixing bowl and it usually ends up in the bowl I softened the butter in or on a scrap of paper towel, or just on the counter. Last night, I realized I could use the spoon rest in this capacity. How had I never figured this out before!?!?!? Do you ever have "DUH!" moments while you're in the kitchen.
