We have discovered the solution.
Working on a new cookbook with author Rivky Kleiman has taught me a lot. Every time we get together for a photoshoot I learn new techniques and delicious recipes. One day, Rivky showed up with a gift: nail polish! One blue bottle and one red bottle.
Apparently, she wasn’t impressed with my method of labeling my sheet pans. I didn’t argue with her, she had the perfect solution and I happily took a few moments to paint all my pans. Now we have no mix ups and meat and milk is clear as day. Or as blue and red.
Here’s an image that shows the difference:
Basically, a big sheet will fill the entire oven rack giving you much more room to work with (and feed a large family). Worth investing in.
