Five ways to repurpose kitchen tools...in the kitchen

Egg cartons as cooling rack

Any geek worth his or her salt loves America's Test Kitchen. The obsessive trial-and-error to make the perfect roast chicken or fruit crisp or whatever. Entertaining and interesting to read, gratifying to cook. And the illustrations are fantastic.

Well, Adrienne (Baby Toolkit) tweeted me with a link to this lovely online spinoff: 5 Kitchen Tools That Moonlight as Other Things. I'm sucker for using tools in creative, unconventional ways (who isn't really), and these ideas are so simple and smart. The essence of parenthacking.

Thanks, Adrienne!
