How to clean annoying messes on your kitchen appliances and tools
How to clean annoying messes on your kitchen appliances and tools

My favorite kitchen cleaning strategy: Use the dishwasher. Alas, not everything can go in the dishwasher, and these days, mine is so chock-full of regular dishes and toddler accoutrements that fitting anything larger than a plate in is bordering on impossible.

I will always have a soft spot in my heart for pudding, in large part because it brings me right back to my grandma’s house, where as a child I stood on a step stool so I could reach the pot and help stir, stir, stir as the sweet scent of the thickening mixture wafted upward. Looking back, I see how that aromatherapy, along with the anticipation...
