I don't know about you, but I am baking 7 days a week in December. To make clean up easier, I put my recycling to work! Take all those annoying grocery store circulars and layer them over your kitchen counter. They will graciously catch all the stray flour and cocoa powder while keeping your workspace clean. When you are done, just crumple the newspapers up and toss into recycling. Aren't you so clever and eco!
