Here's a thread for short-cut tips in cooking... or anything else that makes it easier. Mine is for makng yorkshire pud /pancake batter: 2pt plastic milk bottle with 1pt milk in it. Put the eggs and flour into the bottle with the milk. Put the top on and shake vigorously. You can pour out the batter into the containers, and any you don't use can go into the fridge in the bottle for the next day.
