One doesn’t need lots of space to have an elegant, organized kitchen like the one pictured here. Things just need to co-exist in coherent fashion. Large, white appliances combined with lemon yellow, orange and lime green cookware can give a unified appearance; I call the effect “harmonious clutter”. All the many tools in this kitchen are used frequently, so there really is no wasted space.
Heavy French and Danish pans are hung on stainless steel carts with practical S-hooks from the hardware store, saving the home-cook lots of kneeling and heavy-lifting at low cabinets. Ladles, spatulas, can-openers and other essential kitchen tools are hung the same way for easy access.
Cookware-Cleaning Tip: stubborn stains on cookware, sinks and fixtures can be reduced or eliminated by scrubbing them with a paste made by combining cream of tartar and a little vinegar. This acidic mixture is often more effective than an abrasive chlorine-based cleanser.

Baking Day with M-J

Once a week, I make a large quantity of my favourite bread-dough, and freeze several balls of it in plastic bags. On Baking Day, I make one or two loaves for immediate use. Taken out of the freezer the night before it is needed, the other balls of dough will be ready to knead one more time and rise again for freshly-baked bread during the week. I use my extra dough for pizzas, hamburger buns, and baguettes. Rather than baking all the dough on Baking Day, which would only guarantee two-and-three day-old loaves, I expend the energy producing the dough in bulk on one day, and bake it whenever I need to during the week.
