Cookie-makers rejoice! Tracy's hack is about to make your baking life a lot easier:
My kids love to help out in the kitchen, especially when we're baking and using the hand mixer. Unfortunately, it's hard for the kids to hold the mixing bowl and the hand mixer at the same time. The bowl starts spinning and batter starts flying.
So instead of a mixing bowl, we're now using a medium-sized cooking pot. The handle gives the kids something to hold so the bowl doesn't spin.
Now we can just enjoy making and decorating our cookies, and they're able to help.
