Ever used a coffee grinder to turn whole spices into powder in seconds, or turned your blender into the perfect dough hook? So many of the tools we have stored in our kitchens are marketed with one purpose in mind, but can be rigged to complete a multitude of tasks.
Ice cube trays, for instance, can do more than freeze water. These little wells can be used for portioning foods, molding desserts, and organizing items. Next time you rush to the store for that new tool, think to yourself, do I already own just what I need?
How often will you use that expensive ravioli press? Instead, roll out a large thin sheet of your favorite pasta dough, then press it into an ice cube tray. Fill each cube with your ravioli filling, egg wash the edges, and top with another thin sheet of pasta. Finally, cut out the individual raviolis and seal the edges tightly for an easy ravioli trick without the expensive press.
