Kitchen Tips Tuesday- Substitution Sifter!

Thanks to Elaine & Jo for today's tip!

Have you ever gone to bake something that required you to sift flour- just to realize your little one broke the sifter playing drums or throwing it at the ground? Or, did you realize that you left it behind in a move or just simply lost it? Let's face it a sifter is a great baking tool. However, if you broke that sifter or just don't have one, a wire mesh strainer works great!

As Elaine mentioned to us, "I have a wire mesh strainer that I use (I've never used a sifter). I put the flour/sugar/cocoa whatever into the that and push it through with a spoon."

A great kitchen save!

How do you recover from your kids helping in the kitchen? Share with us at!

Thanks to Tammy's Recipes for hosting Kitchen Tips Tuesday!
