Stuffed Peppers/A Pinterest Success Story

If you’re anything like me, you’ve re-pinned a bunch of cool things to do on Pinterest and hope for the best when you finally give them a try. Sometimes they work (Ikea lamp hack and the baking sheet cleaner) and sometimes they don’t (wine cork art, also known as the hot glue gun incident of 2013).

Fortunately, I have another Pinterest success story!

Stuffed Peppers

This one is simple–when making stuffed peppers, place them in a jumbo muffin tin so they don’t tip over while baking.

Brilliant, right?

Baking Soda + Hydrogen Peroxide = Wow!

Months ago, I repinned a pin about using baking soda and hydrogen peroxide to clean the gunk off of baking sheets. You know what I’m talking about, the sticky gross residue leftover from before you discovered parchment sheets rather than Pam.

Since I’m skeptical about, well, everything, I didn’t have high hopes for this project. But I’m happy to report that the concoction works and it’s easy to make and use! Simply mix baking soda and hydrogen peroxide until it forms a paste, then apply it with a sponge or brillo pad and lightly scrub. The ick comes off with minimal elbow grease and your baking sheets will look like almost new.

Baking sheet--before and after!

Impressive, eh?
