HACSI Tip #1: Melting butter

So, this tip is only really good if you don’t have a microwave–which we happen not to. If you have one, here’s yr tip: YOU ARE VERY LUCKY AND CAN HACSI MELT YR BUTTER IN YR MAGICAL ELECTRIC MACHINE. But for the rest of us, here’s my thought.

Sometimes, I want to melt butter when i am baking something, but it seems like such a pain to get a pot, wash it, etc. So, what’s my solution?


“Wow, that’s not particularly novel or impressive.” you may be thinking. “A miniature pot. Weird, and helpful if I want to pretend that I am a giant, but not much easier.” But! Look!


It is a measuring cup (a stainless steel one), which I already used for measuring my other ingredients! I just cut my butter in half or scoop in some earth balance (note: this is best for about half a cup, in a full cup measuring cup, so that nothing boils over), and it’s nothing extra to clean!

I used this in making my granola bars for my week of breakfasts!
