If you enjoy cooking, you know that many recipes call for mixing and spreading ingredients, whether you’re baking a cake, whipping up a main dish, or just making a quick sandwich. With a few tips and a little practice, you can make sure your ingredients are all mixed together, or spread evenly, no matter your level of vision.
Let’s start with mixing. One great tip for getting started with any recipe, is to begin by gathering and measuring your ingredients ahead of time.
When you’re mixing in a bowl, it can be helpful to use darker bowls for light-colored foods and lighter bowls for dark-colored foods. And choosing a larger bowl, and one with deeper sides, can help reduce any splashes or spills. A larger bowl also makes it easier to get everything into the mixture, instead of on the counter.
