A couple of kitchen tips - baking trays, icing sugar and a spice list

It's been a while since I've done one of these, so thought it was about time...Here's what I have for you today:

1. Line your trays: Save yourself time and energy and line your baking trays with baking paper or aluminium foil whenever you put anything in the oven, be it vegies, meat, chicken, fish, anything. You trays will be a LOT less dirty and you'll have a lot less cleaning up to do.

2. Process your icing sugar: You all know I hate icing sugar. Well, I like it, but I hate the fact that it always clumps together and is a pain to sift. Well, before you sift if, process it in a food processer. It will still need to be sifted, but it breaks it up a lot and takes out a lot of the clumps.

3. Spice List: OK, so this is really OCD of me (and maybe a bit of an insight into who I am) but I got sick of spending ages sifting through my spice cupboard to see if I had one spice or another, or buying something to find out that I already had it and ending up with two packets of the same spice. So last time I tidied the cupboard, I made a list of everything I had. Now, rather than rummaging through the cupboard, or wasting money, I just check the list to see if I have a particular spice before I buy it. Easy.
