As helpful as cookbooks are in the kitchen, you end up mistreating them. Drop a bit of sauce on a page and it’ll get stuck to its neighbor. The Oregonian has a simple solution to keep that from happening, which has been in your kitchen all along: parchment paper.
- As soon as possible, blot the pages dry with paper towels, being careful not to spread the moisture any further.
- Slide a piece of wax or parchment paper between the pages before closing.
- The next time you reach for the cookbook, discard the wax or parchment paper, and the pages will be dry and not stuck together.
Of course, you could ditch cookbooks altogether and manage your recipes with apps.
