My BFF in the Kitchen

*Note - This weeks TWD recipe is Chocolate, Chocolate Cupcakes chosen by Clara at I Heart Food 4 Thought. I'm skipping this week because we're leaving for NYC for a few days and won't be home to eat them. You can visit Clara's site for the recipe and you can check out the other TWD bakers here. I'll definitely make these cupcakes in the future!

Bar Keepers Friend, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways....

~I love how you make cleaning the kitchen so much easier than before you came into my life.
~I love how I can sprinkle you inside a pot that has food stuck on it and when I add a little water and rub you around, then let you sit for 5-10 minutes, the food comes right off.
~I love how you remove discolored spots that cooking and boiling water sometimes leave behind in my stainless steel pots and pans. Soap and water doesn't cut it, but you always leave them looking shiny and new.
~I love how you clean the cooktop leaving it spotless.
~I love that I can buy you at Target or Williams-Sonoma whenever I find my supply getting low. I always keep a can for backup.
~I love you most of all for coming to the rescue when my mom burned baked beans in her beloved Le Creuset pot. It took five overnight soaks and scrubbings, but you came through and the pot looks brand new.

You are a magician in the kitchen. No other cleaners compare. I can't and won't live without you!

Sorry you couldn't participate this week but have fun in NYC! I am so jealous. I heart NYC.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE BKF. It's my friend and I'm not even a barkeeper.
I'm a fellow TWD baker, and I was thinking that it would be nice if we all could chip in and get Laurie some small token/gift for all the work she does. Would you be willing to contribute? If I can get enough people, it would only be about $1 per person. No pressure :-) Let me know! bethberg12@yahoo.com

I love that stuff, too! I've never used it for cleaning pans, only the stove. Thanks for the tip!
